Vision and Values
St Andrew’s School – Vision and Values statement
St Andrew’s School is a Church of England Primary School with strong Christian values. We therefore welcome children as individuals created in the image of God.
Our motto, Life in all its fullness signals our desire to enable our pupils to thrive through the richest experiences and most relevant challenges.
Our Values are defined in our ‘School Culture’ statements –
Welcome, Challenge and Preparation for Life.
Our Welcome is extended to every member of the school community, starting with the children and their families. We are inclusive and we celebrate diversity, we recognise every individual’s interests and potential and respect their right to be safe and happy at school and beyond.
We encourage and equip all children to accept challenges and to strive for excellence in all aspects of school life. We expect our pupils to exhibit leadership skills and ambition for the future.
All school activities are ultimately designed with Preparation for Life in mind. We recognise our responsibility to enable our pupils to thrive both now and in the future. Through our curriculum and approaches to teaching and learning, we must prepare our children for life in an ever changing world, giving them ‘skills and attitudes for life’ that will enable them to be confident about their futures.
