Impacting on wellbeing

At Andrews’, our values are love, courage and respect.  Our wellbeing is a big part of this as it affects how we relate, interact, learn and grow. Ultimately, the day-to-day ethos and approach we have at our school has an impact on the well-being of all of us, therefore at Andrews’ we strive to promote well-being through some of our strategic goals: that we be the best we can be, we are all in this together and that we take care of ourselves and each other.

WHAT WE DO

  • There is an ethos of constructive, caring relationships across the school built on trust, kindness, safety and security.
  • There is a sense of belonging and students are encouraged to talk to staff about worries and difficulties.
  • Children and young people have been taught good  social and emotional skills and are able to identify feelings, thoughts and emotions.
  • All staff are encouraged and supported to be alert, watchful and curious about children and young people’s behaviour, their body language, their interaction with other pupils, what they say, what they draw and what they do in school.
  • There is a clear safeguarding policy in place so that staff know what to do if they believe a child is at risk.
  • There is a strong foundation of good staff mental health and wellbeing. 


My children are both extremely happy at Andrews’- they feel safe, surrounded by friends and seem to know everyone across the whole school. It’s great to feel part of the school community .
