Welcome to Heddon-on-the-Wall St. Andrew’s Church of England Primary School!

We warmly welcome you and your child to our school.

We strongly believe that each child is uniquely made in the image of God with their own strengths, weaknesses, interests and personality. Our core purpose is to ensure that children receive a stimulating and exciting curriculum with opportunities to explore their interests which will enable them to become life-long learners while reaching their full potential.

The school fully embraces the core Christian values which provide the foundation for all our policy and practice meaning we aim to help children develop in all areas to enable them to become happy, well-rounded young people.

We hope that this is the beginning of an exciting, happy and rewarding shared learning journey in which the needs of your child are central. The school will work closely with not just your child but with you and will provide any support when needed.

The school is privileged to work with you and your child at this important time in their lives and just as it takes many hands to build a house it takes many hearts to make a school!

Please feel free to contact myself or the school directly with any queries you may have.

Mr. A. Wheatley

School Ethos
Our Mission Statment

Heddon-on-the-Wall St. Andrew’s CE Primary School is a school in which all staff and Academy Committee work together to promote an explicitly Christian ethos, where the development of the whole child is central.

The School aspires to create an attractive and affirming environment which children can grow in understanding and acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes based on the teachings of Jesus.

The School aims to engender a strong sense of community and Christian values, encouraging the involvement of pupils, families, staff and Academy Committee.

We seek to foster positive links between the School and the wider community, giving pupils an awareness of their environment and building on their self-understanding, a sensitivity to others’ beliefs, values and cultures.

Ethos Statement

Recognising its historic foundation, the School will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and Diocesan level.

The School aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all pupils.

The School was founded in response to the setting up of a trust in 1853.
