Welcome to St. Andrew's CE Primary Academy

Welcome to St. Andrew's CE Primary Academy

At St. Andrew's Primary and Early Years Centre we aim to create a happy school with high standards of achievement and behaviour in a safe, supportive and encouraging environment.  Our Christian values underpin everything we do and we recognise the strengths of each unique individual.

There has been a school serving the village of Chardstock and the surrounding area since 1712.  Our new school opened in 2009 and provides extensive modern facilities, including a variety of outdoor spaces for playing and learning.

I hope you find the information on our website useful and informative but the best way to get a real feel about us is to come and visit.  You will receive a very warm welcome and we look forward to meeting you.

St. George's Day

Father Geoffrey came to school to talk to everyone about St. George.  He taught us the song 'When a Knight Won His Spurs'.  We heard about how St. George slayed the dragon to become patron saint of England.

New Lego Club

The children at St. Andrew's couldn't believe their eyes when they went along to the new Lego Club this week.  A sea of lego greeted them.  They had a fantastic time using the great variety of pieces to build lots of things. Click on the heading to see more photos 

Garden of Gethsemane

Children at St Andrew's created an Easter display for the Lady's Chapel at St. Andrew's Church. Each child drew a picture of what they thought the Garden of Gethsemane looked like when Jesus went to pray. Click on the heading for more pictures

Art Book Presentation

The Artime art group presented the school with new art books for the library.  The funds for the books were raised from sales at their exhibition held in the autumn.

Baby and Toddler Group

Chardstock Baby and Toddler Group takes place at St. Andrew's Primary every Monday morning from 9.30 am until 11.30 am (term time only). 
,
We are a fun, relaxed toddler group who offer lots of toys for the children to play with plenty of space for the children to explore, and a fun "messy" activity for the children to take part in each week.  

We charge just £1 per child which includes drinks and biscuits!

Next Monday will be our last session before the Easter holidays and we will be making some lovely Easter cards using our footprints!
