May I take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to the website for St Andrew’s Church of England Voluntary Aided Infant School linked to the Diocese of Leeds.
The governors, staff and children are extremely proud of our school and we hope you will soon feel part of our friendly family. We work hard to learn together, striving to ensure that all of our children achieve their best in a happy and secure, caring Christian environment. Our teaching is based on the knowledge that all children are unique and have differing abilities and educational needs, all children should have the opportunity to thrive and be valued and be happy at school. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and would like you to become an active partner.
Our last OFSTED inspection was in January 2017. Inspectors from both HMI OFSTED and SIAMS (Statutory Inspection for Anglican and Methodist Schools) visited the school and commented:
“St Andrew’s Church of England VA Infant School is an outstanding school. The committed and effective leadership of the executive headteacher and Headteacher drive the school’s Christian vision, which directly and very positively impacts on the every-day lives and achievements of the whole school community. The stated Christian values of the school contribute deeply to spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of learners particularly in relation to respect and care for others. The school has exceptionally strong partnerships with parents and the parish which results in clear benefits for children who make excellent progress and achieve well.” (SIAMS, November 2016)

At St Andrew’s, we set high expectations and continually strive to raise standards by providing stimulating activities and experiences that make learning exciting and enjoyable. We hope you visit soon so that you can see this for yourself.
