All pupils are taught to sing and singing is used at our school as a means of celebration, enjoyment and musical challenge. Children are taught to sing in unison and also to explore devices such as harmonies and rounds.

learn a language

Each class from Year 1 to Y6 has a French lesson weekly through a specialist teacher. By the time the children are in Upper Key Stage 2, they are learning to read and write in French. 

At Andrews’ Endowed CE Primary we believe that the curriculum is a powerful tool that enables us to develop our pupils academically, spiritually and socially, helping to promote a life-long love of learning. We are committed to developing the whole child, helping them to experience the core Christian Values of Love, Courage and Respect. We use the National Curriculum as a starting point for a wide and varied learning experience for our children. We aim to enrich it through our strong ethos based on respect for ourselves and others, equality and a sense of wonder at the world we live in.  During their time with us our children will have the opportunity to be creative, to be physically active and to be academically challenged.
