At St. Andrew's Southgate we have a love of learning and strive to nourish the God-given potential of each individual
On behalf of all the staff and governors I should like to extend to you a very warm welcome to St Andrew’s Southgate Primary School and to share with you, in a few words, what makes our school so special.
At St Andrew's Southgate we have a love of learning and strive to nourish the God-given potential of each individual. We value our caring Christian environment where children are developed as lifelong learners and global citizens with character and social justice.
As a one form entry primary school with a maximum roll of 210 pupils, we enjoy a uniquely close, supportive and inclusive school community where each child is known, valued and respected as an individual.
St Andrew’s first opened its doors to local children in 1863 and today our mission remains clear, to serve our local community by providing a first class primary education experience which allows our children to enhance their own lives and the lives of others. Our close links with St Andrew’s Church provide the backbone to this endeavour, rooting us in our shared vision to embody the love of Jesus Christ and to reflect the infinite value of each individual.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do’.
Our new school statement reflects the shared vision of staff, pupils and governors. 'Many gifts, one spirit' acknowledges and upholds the Christian principle of giving thanks to almighty God for the many talents provided to us. 'Fitting together' reflects the view of our pupils who recognise the benefit and enjoyment of working together. Enrich, empower and energise is the contribution of the dedicated team of staff who motivate and encourage pupils to achieve their full potential.
‘May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had.’
I hope that you enjoy looking through our website and that you will accept my personal invitation to visit us at one of our school tours or stay and play events. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
