Church School

St Andrew’s School is a Voluntary Aided Church of England Primary School and Nursery in the Diocese of St Albans. The whole school frequently walk to St Andrew’s Church for celebrations and special school services. These services are led by the local clergy. The clergy regularly come in to lead worship in school and are often accompanied by our worship bear. We consider ourselves very fortunate that members of the congregation and village community support our School in so many ways and are regular visitors.

Our School Prayer

This is our school
Let peace dwell here
Let the room be full of happiness
Let love abide here
Love of one another
Love of learning
And love of God
Let us remember
That many hands build a house
But many hearts make a school.   Amen.


Collective Worship

Collective worship is the heartbeat of St Andrew’s and highly valued by staff and children alike. A collective act of Christian worship is held daily and Reverend Steve  visits our School fortnightly to lead worship. Rooted in Bible teaching, the children are invited to explore and respond to Christian values which we hope will inspire them into action.

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from collective acts of worship.
