A Culture of Care

At St Andrew’s Primary School, we encourage partnerships between school, family, parish and the wider community. We work actively to build a positive school environment where each child can feel included, safe, supported and valued. We believe that the development of our students’ personal, spiritual, social, emotional and physical wellbeing is fundamental to their academic success.

Our whole school, proactive approach to Student Wellbeing includes:

  • Commitment to Child Safety Standards

    • Child Safety Policy 2.19 a

    • Procedures for Mandatory Reporting


Positive Student Behaviour Support

Our Student Behaviour Support reflects the school community's shared expectations in relation to student engagement, attendance and behaviour. It aims to promote respectful relationships in our school community.
