A message from our Headteacher:

 

Welcome to our school website. At Keighley St Andrew’s Church of England Primary School & Nursery, we aim to create an environment which gives children security, confidence, success and stability. We believe that all children should have access to all areas of the curriculum.

Our ethos is rooted in Christian values: Thankfulness, Valuing the Environment, Reconciliation, Forgiveness, Perseverance, Truth, Valuing Self & Others, Compassion, Love, Humility, Trust and Courage. Each half term we focus on two values and how we can all improve the way we live out that value both individually and collectively.

We help all children develop lively enquiring minds, good personal relationships and the knowledge and skills to equip them for the future and the ever changing world in which we live. In order to successfully achieve this we encourage self-discipline and tolerance for others. We value the partnerships we have with parents and believe that parents are instrumental in their children's development.

We have a strong and committed team of staff at Keighley St Andrew’s who provide a wealth of learning experiences within an exciting and stimulating environment. Such opportunities enable the children to acquire and develop the skills to consider and describe the world around them. Our children are also happy, enthusiastic and open individuals who are a delight to teach.

-------------------------------------------------------

Our Vision at Keighley St Andrew’s Church of England Primary School & Nursery:

To raise standards through an engaging, relevant and enjoyable curriculum that broadens a knowledge and understanding of the world

 

To be a school where our Christian ethos and values are evident in all that is said and done

 

To provide a caring environment that nurtures the individuality of each child giving security, confidence, success and stability so children can develop skills for learning and life

 

To encourage, support and value the contribution that each family, and the wider community, make in developing children to their full potential

----------------------------------------------

 

We are pleased to announce that Keighley St. Andrew's has been awarded the "Communication Friendly School" accreditation which is given to schools that have trained and support all their staff in communication and language development.

At Keighley St. Andrew's we recognise that communication is vital to children’s development.  We work hard to provide a whole school environment where a wide range of strategies are used to meet the needs of all children in school, providing them with opportunities to develop their communication skills.
