Our School Intent
At St. Andrew’s, children enjoy a broad and balanced curriculum. Our curriculum is structured so that we can Promote Excellence in a Caring, Christian Community. We help each child to realise and reach their potential so that they can enjoy life in all its fullness. Children are taught how to be fulfilled, responsible members of our society. We build resilience in our children, teaching them to endure and persevere and how having a Growth Mindset helps us to achieve our potential.
We develop a love of learning in our children and deliver a ‘spiral curriculum’, where skills and knowledge are revisited. We teach our children to be aspirational and give them the foundations to achieve their dreams. 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.
We know that for our children to flourish and become confident learners we must provide them with real life experiences; pupils at St. Andrew’s are provided with a range of enrichment and extra-curricular activities supported by our links with the church and the local community. We give our children memorable experiences so that they can draw upon them for years to come.
Our intent is to develop the spiritual, moral, academic, physical and emotional skills of every child. We nurture the well-being of every child. We develop the whole child.
