It gives me huge pleasure on behalf of all of the staff, children and governors to warmly welcome you to our wonderful school.
St Andrew's is a very happy and welcoming school with a superb team of nurturing and inspirational staff. We are driven by our strong Christian foundation, with our vision and values at the centre of all that we do.
We are a three-form entry Church of England Primary School in the centre of Hove with strong community links with children aged 4 to 11 years old. Our aim is to nurture and inspire each child as an individual so that they grow and flourish into enthusiastic learners and valuable members of our wider community.
We look forward to meeting you and hope that our website gives you a flavour of our school.
Inspire a love of learning and enjoy 'life in all its fullness', ensuring that everyone can flourish and be the best they can be. John 10:10
Welcome to St Andrew's. The statement at the top of this page sums up what our purpose is. Quite simply, it is why we are all here.
In order to fulfill this ethos, we have founded our school on four Core Values. These are Achieve, Care, Joy and Worship. To us these mean:-
Achieve - We want our children to fulfil their maximum potential in all areas of school life. As a school we will provide both challenge and loving support. We want our children to thrive as lifelong learners and as positive people.
Care - Our school is founded upon an understanding of Christian love. Children will learn how to build strong relationships and learn to live well together. They will learn to behave with dignity and to respect people of all diversity.
Joy - Joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit. It inspires positive mental health and a deep enjoyment of what school life has to offer. Joy equips the children to deal with challenges ahead.
Worship - We are a Christian school. Our values and approach to school life embrace the teaching of the Bible.
I hope this gives you a clear picture of our school. We are a fully inclusive school and we warmly welcome all children of our local community to join our school family.
Should you wish to have paper copies of any of the information on this website, please contact the School Office and they will provide it free of charge.
