We are very proud of the way we demonstrate our strong Christian ethos in the actions we take every day.

Our key values – Aim High, Show Respect and Make a Difference enable us to go out in to the world and effect real positive change – both locally and at a global level.

Here are some examples of what the children of St. Andrew’s Church School, Taunton do to live out our mission and values:

Archie Project

The Archie Project enables children to understand the challenges faced by local elderly people with Dementia.  Children are given the opportunity to visit Kilkenny House (a residential care home) in Taunton and talk to the residents as a way to show mutual care, respect and understanding.

 

Journeying Together, by Somer Class 2018

 

One day on our journey our paths met;

At first we were strangers

But you were easy to talk to

We lit up your smiles with our singing

And you filled up our tummies with biscuits

Thank you for your kindness

I bid you farewell, not goodbye

 

One day on our journey our paths met;

You gave us the confidence to talk and listen

And stretched our minds with your stories

We loved looking at all of your photographs

And finding out about your amazing lives

Thank you for your wisdom

I bid you farewell, not goodbye

 

One day on our journey our paths met

We cherish the friendships we made

We enjoyed making bracelets with you

Every time I saw you, you were smiling

I felt so happy that I could make a difference

Thank you for bringing us happiness

I bid you farewell, not goodbye

 

One day on our journey our paths met

And along this journey I’ve grown

I think about others now, before myself

I am a more considerate person

Because of the kindness you have shown

Thank you for helping me to grow

I bid you farewell, not goodbye

 

One day on our journey our paths met

Now my journey has turned a new corner

We are going in different directions

And although I will miss you

I am a wiser traveller

Because of what you have taught me

So when I wave farewell,

Know that you have helped me on my way,

And I hope that our paths will cross again.

Taunton Food Bank

As part of our key value to ‘Make A Difference’, we have been collecting tinned and dry food which we then deliver to Taunton Food Bank to help those who are less fortunate than us and who have genuine need.

Litter Pick

Last Spring our Christian Value was Service, and the School Council led a Litter pick at the rec so that we could serve our local community.
