About St Andrew's CofE Primary School

Our Christian ethos is at the heart of all we do at St. Andrew’s Primary School. We work in close partnership with St Andrew’s Church community who worship at the adjoining Church. Our mission is “Growing learners to live in God’s world”. We are looking for a visionary Headteacher who will work with St Andrew’s Church to make this mission a reality.

We are on a continuous improvement journey. Our last Ofsted report confirmed that we are a ‘Good’ school, but we are not complacent. We strive to become a beacon of outstanding Christian based education in Crawley. Our aim is to be a centre of excellence for primary teaching where staff are proud to develop their talents in a cutting-edge learning environment. To achieve this ambitious future for our school we need an energetic, innovative and determined leader with a passion for delivering the very best education for our children. As we look to develop new ways of working and ensure St. Andrew’s Primary continues to provide for the needs of our children and their families, we need a Headteacher who can ‘think big’ and has a hunger to push us to even greater achievements.
