Welcome

WELCOME TO ANDREWS’ C OF E PRIMARY SCHOOL – HIGH ASPIRATIONS, MORAL STRENGTH, SPIRITUAL DEPTH

WELCOME FROM MRS GEMMA GUNDRY, ACTING HEADTEACHER

This is a very special school. We are proud of our unique School House and our beautiful setting, which provides our pupils with a very special place in which to learn and grow.

Our pupils are offered a high quality learning environment, both indoors and out. We are privileged to enjoy extensive grounds, including a woodland area we call our ‘secret garden’, a large playing field, a playground, an adventure playground, and a storytelling garden. We also have an ‘outdoor classroom’ large enough to seat a whole class for lessons outside.

Our curriculum is designed to enable our pupils to learn through active enquiry and first hand experience. We enjoy bringing our learning alive through visits to museums and galleries, and by inviting visitors to come into school. We are committed to a curriculum which provides plenty of opportunities for learning outdoors, and we have two dedicated outdoor learning spaces for our younger pupils. Our Reception children, ‘Acorns’, enjoy their own secure playground with space for riding bikes, construction, and imaginative play, as well as developing their physical skills through their own adventure zone area. Children in Years 1 and 2 share a large outdoor learning space, separate from the main playground, with space for planting and growing and room for learning through discovery with their own willow den. Pupils in Key Stage 2 have direct access to the playground, adventure playground, field and gardens from each of their classrooms.

 As a Church of England school at the heart of Holybourne village community, we set out to promote and nurture Christian and moral values within a happy environment where everyone feels valued and secure. Our core values are love, courage and respect.  

Our dedicated and hard working staff team set high standards for behaviour, have high expectations of our pupils and help our children to strive for their own high aspirations. Our children are eager to learn and to achieve their best.  We value our partnership with our supportive and enthusiastic families. We enjoy the support of a highly motivated PTFA, and a strong and committed Governing Body.  We also offer before and after school care with our Breakfast and After School Clubs which run Monday to Friday in term time.

We are a happy and well regarded village school.

 

What is Andrews’ Endowed?

Having friendships within your class as well as with your teachers, being happy with others about their achievements and having good sportsperson skills.  We can trust our peers and fellow pupils in difficult times and I know that it is ok to make mistakes because that is how we learn!  In class, we don’t look down on differences but embrace them and we continue to learn to accept everyone for who they are.
