Visions and Values

This is our school vision. It was created by pupils, staff, parents and governors in collaboration with artist, Chris Shipton. 


Head teacher Mrs Jude Bennett said:

“Chris Shipton lead us through an exploration of our values and vision for the children of St Andrew’s in a lively and imaginative way.  This visual representation truly captures the spirit of St Andrew’s.”


Mrs Gail Gauron said:

“We were determined to have a school vision developed by, reflecting, and belonging to the whole school”.
