‘St Andrew’s Junior School is OUTSTANDING in all areas.’ – Ofsted December 2022. ‘St Andrew’s Infant School is GOOD with OUTSTANDING features in Personal Development and Behaviours and Attitudes’ – Ofsted June 2023.


St Andrew’s CE (VA) Infant School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of all of its pupils. Each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance and we expect all members of the school community to share this commitment.

Mrs Jo Swallow is our school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). She is the lead person in our school and the person you should contact if you have concerns about a child. She is supported by our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Dayle Wood (Learning Mentor). Both Mrs Swallow and Mrs Wood are available to contact via the school office. We are supported by our school’s safeguarding governor, Mrs Elizabeth Lawley.

More information on the ways we keep the children in our school safe is available in our Safeguarding Policy.

We are a Rainbows Kitemark school here at St. Andrew’s which means that key staff are trained to provide therapeutic support for pupils suffering from bereavement and loss.

Here at St. Andrew’s we actively support the Prevent Agenda.

Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes.

The Prevent strategy covers all types of terrorism and extremism, including the extreme right wing, left wing, animal rights, environmental and splinter groups.

The government have released an online reporting tool for any person who wishes to report illegal or harmful information, pictures or videos that they have found on the internet.
A report can be made anonymously using this link: please also visit for more advice and resources.
