School Ethos

Our Mission Statement

Heddon-on-the-Wall St. Andrew’s C of E Primary School is a school in which all staff and governors 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 in 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 governors.
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 its pupils

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