Welcome to St Andrew's Primary School
We are a small village school dedicated to providing an exciting and challenging learning environment in a fantastic rural setting on the Essex/Suffolk border. Since September 2017 we have joined on that journey with St Giles' Primary at Maplestead, two small schools working together to provide a fresh outlook to an excellent primary experience.
At St Andrew’s C of E Primary School we are curious, excited and really love to learn. As a Christian school community we support each other through our shared values to become robust, independent learners who persevere, have the courage and confidence to be creative and imaginative, care for one another and the community we live in.
I am always delighted to welcome visitors to St Andrew's.

‘Behaviour at the school, both in lessons and at play, is good. Pupils show respect towards others and support each other well. They enjoy school’.
Relationships are at the heart of this school. Pupils are known individually by all staff and are nurtured, supported and kept safe. Their well-being is given a high priority.
Our School Vision
At St Giles’ and St Andrew’s C of E Primary Schools, we are curious, excited and really love to learn. As a Church school, we believe in serving our community based on the love of God for everyone. We support each other to become robust, independent learners who persevere, have the courage and confidence to be creative, imaginative and care for one another and the community we live in. Our school is inclusive, making every one of us welcome. It sets us suitable learning challenges and responds to our needs, ensuring that we reach our potential and are fulfilled. These are the golden threads that weave through our work and are exemplified by our values –
Respect, Trust, Love and Forgiveness within both schools and beyond.
