Mission, Ethos & Values
School’s Mission Statement:
St. Andrew’s is a Christian community that aims to provide a welcoming, secure and stimulating environment in which our children grow and learn. They are encouraged to develop to their full potential socially, emotionally, morally and academically by working in an atmosphere of co-operation, tolerance and awareness of the needs of others. Positive attitudes, self-discipline, independence, pride in personal achievement and that of others are prized as we provide the children with firm foundations on which to build their lives and become responsible citizens.
