Welcome to St Andrew’s Church School
As the Headteacher, I am delighted to welcome you to St. Andrew’s Church School, ‘A family school at the heart of our community’.
I feel honoured to lead St Andrew’s and very much value the importance of working closely with the children, staff, parents and governors. We are proud to be part of the family of schools that belong to the Bath & Wells Multi Academy Trust and work closely with our local hub family of Taunton schools and more widely with school and staff across the BWMAT.
We aspire to provide our children with as many different opportunities as possible to learn, develop, contribute and share. Everything we do is inspired by the words of Jesus in the Bible:
“But I have come that they may have life in all its fullness” John 10:10
We all collaborate and work hard every day to live our three key values, to:
- Aim high
- Show respect
- Make a difference
In doing so, we will ensure that the traditional values on which the school is founded continue to support and drive us in our mission to provide a truly outstanding education for every child, enhanced by our distinctly Christian Ethos. Our vision is apparent throughout the school and underpins everything that we do. We strive to ensure that every child is cherished and nurtured in order to support them in all aspects of school life.
We are committed to providing the highest possible standard of education in an environment that both motivates and empowers children to become independent learners and good, caring citizens. We are committed to developing the whole child and ensuring our pupils are best prepared for the 21st Century, equipped with the appropriate skills and attitudes, such as self-confidence, resilience and courage, to enable them to succeed now and in the future.
All staff have the highest expectations and aspirations for children in their care. They are committed to finding and developing children’s gifts and strengths, ensuring that every child makes the best possible progress and fully succeeds during their time here. Staff strive to continue developing their own knowledge and skills, leading by the example that learning is for life and enabling them to provide the very best opportunities for the children in their care, regardless of their needs.
Whether learning new skills, singing in our choir or taking part in an artistic or sporting event, everyone at St. Andrew’s Church School knows that they have a special place where they belong.
