Welcome to our website where we hope to give you an idea and understanding of who we are and what we stand for at St Andrew’s School.
As a Special School we teach pupils from 3-18 years of age. Our pupils have a range of barriers to learning and the school’s environment, expertise and ambition all play a part in making St Andrew’s School a truly Special place for pupils, parents and staff. St Andrew’s School is often likened to a family and we embrace those values.
Each member of staff in St Andrew’s School is committed to support and nurture every child and young person with an outstanding quality of learning and social experiences along with community opportunities where each child can grow in confidence both academically and socially. In putting the child at the centre of everything we do, we work closely with parents who are encouraged to take an active part in their child’s learning if desired. We have an ‘open door’ policy and regard parents, opinions as having upmost importance with regards to their children but also to the direction and vision of the School itself.
We are an ambitious and improving school striving for continued excellence in our field. All of our staff are driven and dedicated and all staff are involved in programmes of further education or training. Our current priorities can be seen in our SQIP but focus on initiatives such as MOVE, TACPAC and NAS accreditation to name but a few.
We will always act in the best interests of our pupils and over the next couple of years will be preparing them for a move to become part of the Inverurie Community Campus. This will not mean losing any of the identity, reputation or position in the Community that we already have but will mean an outstanding opportunity to continue our excellence in a new, purpose built facility. We expect to move by March 2020, which seems a long time from now but rest assured we are working very hard to make the new provision an inspirational and forward thinking space.
Thank you for your interest in St Andrew’s School. If you wish to know more about us then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
