St Andrew’s is a family school and parents are always welcome. We believe very strongly in the partnership between school and home.
Contact with parents is extremely important as we are not educating children in isolation. We aim to develop a partnership between the parents, the school and of course, the child. Parents are involved early if there are problems. Parents are encouraged to contact us at once should they or their child be unhappy about some aspect of school.
In the Nursery and Junior School parents often have daily contact with their child’s teacher. In the Senior School, form tutors and teachers are always willing to see parents.
Throughout the School there are many opportunities to meet teaching staff and discuss your daughter’s or son’s progress and development.
Parents can become involved in school life by taking part in the Parent Council meetings that happen regularly throughout the year. This is your opportunity to discuss issue from the curriculum to enrichment opportunities and the school improvement plan. Parents can also volunteer on the PTFA, which runs jointly with the Rushmoor School PTFA. We are very fortunate to have parents who give up their time to organise wonderful events for the school to raise additional funds to supply the pupils with extra resources, such as new technologies.
All questions regarding the pastoral care of a child are taken seriously and are properly addressed. Parents and children must have confidence that they will be taken seriously and that action will follow a discussion.
St Andrew's has an excellent reputation for being a caring school and a friendly environment and we owe it to our children and their parents to ensure that this reputation continues to be fully justified.
