Values are a fundamental component of all educative processes. As a community we are conscious of the role that values play in guiding all that we undertake at St Andrew’s. We believe that the following values, along with our Benedictine traditions and way of life (MJR) underpin the vision of our school and encourage a flourishing community:
Respect: We value and respect each person’s uniqueness.
Reverencing creation: We give praise and are thankful that all things are gifts from God and promote environmental stewardship.
Contemplation: We are reflective people who understand that life-giving growth comes from recognising the God moments in our lives.
Shared responsibility and partnerships: Collectively we share the responsibility for the development of each member of our school family.
Joy: We embrace a joyful, fun, enthusiastic attitude that is forever grateful for God’s gifts.
Hospitality: We welcome all members of the school community in friendship.
Compassion: We recognise the dignity and individuality of each person. We reflect on the ways in which we can make a difference to the lives of others both within and beyond our school community.
