St Andrew’s CE Primary School is a one and a half form entry primary school, with room to grow. Our Early Years pod
was created nearly 3 years ago when our pre-school, The Mulberry Bush, joined the school. There has been recent work on developing the outdoor learning environment for the Reception class and there is, excitingly, much potential left in developing both the Early Years environment and the curriculum provision.

The school received a good grading by Ofsted in January 2020 which was a testament to the improvements the school had made. However, we are a school which is constantly seeking to improve and wish to ensure that it
continues to make a difference to pupils’ lives. The school is developing a vibrant curriculum so that children leave school with a passion for learning, already having a secure and wide knowledge base and skills which will equip them for the next phase of their education, as well as life.
We are proud of our church school ethos and our partnership with the local churches. Our Christian vision has driven much of our work. We value our partnership with our local community and parents and a look on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/standrewswey/ will show how important this is to the school.
