Teaching Assistants: Mrs Kemp and Mrs Gill

Special Educational Support Assistants: Miss Barber, Mrs Baker, Mrs Chapman, Mrs Hones, Mrs Krause, Mrs Ogilvie and Mrs Woodroffe.


We believe that the Reception year is vital for securing the foundations for life-long learning. We aim to equip our children with the skills and knowledge needed to become independent, resilient and enthusiastic learners through a growth mindset approach.


At St. Andrew’s we aim to provide a rich and stimulating environment which nurtures the individual child and harnesses their interests through our creative curriculum covering the seven areas of learning.


The seven areas of learning:

Three Prime Areas:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
Four Specific Areas:
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
Please do come to speak to us if you have any questions, however small they may seem!
We look forward to working with you and your child this year.
