Butterflies in the library

Mrs Bowie came to work with KS2 at St. Andrew's Primary to create an art installation for the library. The children created four hundred butterflies to celebrate all the wonderful books that are in school. After the art work was put up she came back to share with the children in a worship, stories of children around the world who don't have the same opportunities and how we could help them.

Core Value Banners

St Andrew's is delighted to share its new Core Value Banners. The banners were designed and drawn by the children working alongside the artist Fee Bowie and Mrs Gilmour-White. Fee Bowie then enlarged each image and added the words shared by the children during their design sessions. Each value is then topped by the relevant Bible quote and reference. There is a portfolio in the school office containing the original pencil designs of the children.  This photo shows the banner depicting Peace. Click on the heading for more photographs

Thank you to all those members of the school community and Membury who came to support us when we celebrated our new status within the Acorn Multi Academy Trust on Monday. Andrea Rice joined us for the occasion, as did Governors past and present and Father Geoffrey. The children enjoyed the opening ceremony and the cake. A good number of people joined us for a tour of the building to see the changes the have been made and talk about some of the successes we have been able to celebrate in recent months. 

Oak Class Trip to London

On Wednesday 11th March, children from Year 5 and 6 from St. Andrew's Primary Chardstock were given the amazing opportunity to fly to London for the day.  The children flew from Exeter to London City Airport. They had an early start arriving at the airport at 5:30am and were in the air before the sun rose. After having a bird’s eye view of the Shard and other landmarks, the class touched down before 8am. Excitedly, they caught the DLR to the Tower of London and the tube onto Westminster. 

Neil Parish, the school’s MP, had arranged for a tour of the House of Lords which gave the children a fantastic insight into British democracy and its history. They also managed to fit in a trip to Natural History Museum and a boat trip down the Thames before catching their flight home.
