Vision and Aims
Our Vision and Aims
Within a Christian ethos, we aim to create a caring community where high standards of teaching and learning enable all our children to develop the skills and knowledge that they will need for life long learning. We foster the spirit of enquiry in our children, coupled with a sense of self-worth. Individual talents and contributions are valued and celebrated.
We provide a Christian education, which nurtures and supports our daily lives and the curriculum we offer.
We believe in high standards. We encourage children, staff, parents and governors to set high standards of achievement, value excellence and experience success.
We aim to meet the legal requirements of the National Curriculum and statutory assessments.
We offer a variety of strategies to develop each child as an independent as well as a co-operative learner.
Learning objectives are matched to each child’s stage of development so that individuals develop confidence and a sense of achievement through learning.
Activities are planned carefully to provide wherever possible active learning and first hand experience which will challenge and motivate children.
We recognise the value of a well-organised environment which is attractive and stimulating.
We encourage and celebrate all achievements within and beyond the curriculum.
We endeavour to provide continuous professional development for all staff.
We encourage teamwork so that human relationships grow in an atmosphere of positive commitment and enthusiasm.
We believe in partnership with parents. We try to develop this further and enrich the curriculum through involvement with the community.
Andrews’ Endowed CE School encourages all members of the school to respect themselves, each other, our local community and the environment.
We establish high standards of behaviour, reinforced by praise and underpinned by Christian values.
