Values & Mission

Our aim is to provide a living, Christian school environment, where the full potential of each child is realised through personal, social, academic and spiritual development.

‘Learning together what is good and right.’
Job 34: 4

We are a Church of England School that is required to be distinctly Christian and inclusive. This means that we welcome those who have a Christian faith, those who have no faith and those of other faiths.
Our core Christian values are embedded at the heart of the school and this has a positive effect on children’s behaviour and attitudes to learning and the relationships of pupils and adults in the school.

Values

At St. Andrew’s we value the:

  • uniqueness of each child and seek to develop their full potential

  • partnership between community, staff and pupils

  • Christian distinctiveness of our school

  • rich experiences in learning

The school will actively involve our partners in the development and embedding of these values.

Our vision is that our school will provide its children and staff with:

  • a loving, welcoming and safe environment so that children can thrive and develop respect for others and their surroundings

  • a love of learning, that nurtures each child’s needs, abilities and talents

  • opportunities to celebrate achievements in all areas of learning and development

Key Rules: Kind Hearts, Kind Words, Kind Hands, Kind Feet, Kind Actions.

Equality Statement

The primary aim of St Andrew’s school is to enable all pupils to take part as fully as possible in every part of school life by developing each child’s self-confidence, recognising their strengths and encouraging them to achieve their full potential through personal, social, academic and spiritual de-velopment.

As a Church of England School we are both distinctly Christian and inclusive. St. Andrew’s pro-vides a loving, welcoming and safe environment so that children can thrive and develop respect for others and their surroundings.

At St. Andrew’s School we will take steps to advance equality of opportunity, foster good relations and eliminate discrimination or harassment across all the protected characteristics (age, race, gender reassignment, disability, marriage and civil partnership, religion and belief, pregnancy and mater-nity, gender, sexual orientation) as appropriate within the school community. A rejection of bully-ing and intimidation, and an understanding of right standards of behaviour are rooted in a Christian understanding of life, in line with the Christian foundation of the school.

Further exemplification regarding equality can be found in the school’s Equality Policy and can be accessed on the school website.
