Headteacher's Welcome....

Welcome to our school website.  We hope that you will find all the information that you require.

St Andrew's promotes and maintains a calm and friendly atmosphere, but also has a commitment to enabling children to work hard to reach their full potential.  We also work hard to provide a stimulating and inspiring learning environment, in which children feel happy, valued and safe.

If you wish to gain a fuller picture of our school I am always proud to show visitors around during the working day and encourage an open door ethos.  If you would like to visit our school, please contact the school office.

Thank you
