Attendance and Punctuality

At St. Andrew’s we recognise the importance of regular attendance in order for children to achieve their full potential. As a result, the class with the highest monthly attendance is rewarded with a non-uniform day.

All absences must be explained on the day either by email,, or by telephone, 01895 232768.

Absences resulting from sickness or diarrhoea require pupils to remain home until symptoms have ceased for 48 hours.

Collective Worship

As a Church of England School there are daily acts of Christian worship. We have regular visits from local clergy and Christian youth workers and children also participate in regular church services at our local parish churches of St. Andrew’s and St. Margaret’s.

Each class conducts a class assembly during the year. This is an opportunity for the children to share their learning with the school and their families.

Every class creates their own ‘class cross’ and each classroom has a Prayer Area: here the class prayers are displayed and children have the opportunity to visit this area and talk to God.

More information about our Christian ethos can be found here.
