Welcome to the websites for St Andrew’s Church of England Voluntary Aided Infant and Junior Schools. The Governors, staff and children are extremely proud of our schools and we hope that you will soon feel part of our friendly family. We work hard to learn together, striving to ensure that all our children achieve their best in a caring, Christian community.
We are delighted to announce that the Junior School was judged OUTSTANDING in all areas by OFSTED in December 2022. During an ungraded Ofsted inspection, in April 2022, the Infant School was rated ‘Good’ in all areas with enough evidence to suggest that it would be rated ‘Outstanding’ had it been a graded inspection. A further graded inspection is due to take place (of the Infant School) in the next year. We are incredibly proud of these outcomes as they reflect the hard work and dedication our schools put in to ensuring the very best for our pupils. In our most recent SIAMS (Statutory Inspection for Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspections we were rated ‘Good’ (Junior School) and ‘Outstanding’ (Infant School).
Our teaching is based on the knowledge that all children are unique and have differing abilities and educational needs and that all children should have the opportunity to thrive, feel valued and be happy at school.
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 welcome visits to our schools. We have organised Open Days each year, which are listed in our calendar on the website. If you wish to visit on a different date, please ring the office who will be happy to help you.
