St Andrew’s Church of England Primary School
Part of the Diocese of Chelmsford Vine Schools Trust
You are a Child of God. You are wonderfully made, dearly loved, and precious in His sight. Before God made you, He knew you… There is no one else like you!
At St Andrew’s Primary School, we aim to inspire our children to become inquisitive, reflective individuals with an enthusiasm for learning. Our Christian values of love, trust and wisdom as well as a thorough consideration of our children’s well-being and happiness is at the heart of everything we do.
We provide a range of learning experiences within a balanced and challenging curriculum, that enable all children to develop their appreciation and awareness of the world around them as well as building their interpersonal skills and resilience. Our cross-curricular approach enables our children to make meaningful links with their learning and ensures that every member of our St Andrew’s family is supported in, and encouraged to build strong relationships, celebrate diversity and equality, encourage respect and build a sense of community. We enable children to take on key roles within the school developing a sense of responsibility, and we encourage active participation in our wider community through involvement with local events and organisations.
Our embedded Christian values, PSHE lessons and whole school worship assemblies promote positive attitudes which reflect the values and skills needed for future learning and success in modern Britain. Children leave St Andrew’s Primary School with a strong sense of belonging and are proud that they have developed the confidence and skills needed to be learners for life.
- Through our Christian values we promote happiness, care, consideration and respect for all, we build confidence, independence and self-esteem.
- Enjoying success within a healthy, safe, and stimulating environment, we learn in an engaging and exciting way.
- As life-long learners, everyone in our school community is encouraged to achieve excellence in all they do.

History of Our School
The School was opened on the present site in 1867; there is record of a School in Weeley as early as 1797. In 1810 a schoolroom was built in The Street and this was used until 1865 when the Squire of Weeley donated the present site.
New sections were added to the School in 1900, 1937, 1964, 1970, 1991 and 1996.
Within the Main Building there are three classrooms, a music room, a large hall, prayer and sensory space, administrative offices and a library.
