Shottery St Andrew’s is a warm and friendly village style school on the outskirts of Stratford upon Avon, where the personal touch is all important. As a school we pride ourselves as having a strong family ethos, where all pupils are known and cared for as individuals. By taking this approach we believe we inspire them to achieve, enabling them to develop to their full potential, with high esteem and outstanding self- confidence.
Shottery School is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England School, which benefits from strong links with the local church also dedicated to St. Andrew.
The school caters for approximately 94 children, divided by age into 4 classes. Class sizes at Shottery are small, on average 26 pupils per class. This enables staff to know pupils as individuals, maximising the potential to make progress and develop learning. Our standard intake for reception is 15.
Parents play a large part in the success of Shottery School and we welcome parents to show an interest in what their children do at school, in their children’s work, in their achievements and in their problems. At the start of each term, class teachers publish information about topics to be covered, these are posted on our website.
Built into the school calendar, are 2 parents’ consultation evenings and an open evening. Parents will also receive written feedback three times a year updating them on their child’s progress as well as giving suggestions for how support may be given at home and next steps for learning in school. Parents are also able to pop in after school on Wednesdays to meet with staff or may make an appointment for another time should this be required.
We recognise the value of clear and consistent communication and aim to set as many key events within the school year as early as possible to assist parents. The weekly newsletter is emailed each Friday, placed on the website as well as being displayed in the notice board by reception door.
