School Values and Vision


Our Values

Care, Inspire and achieve


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 and enable them to develop their full potential, with high esteem and outstanding self-confidence.


The school caters for approximately 90 children, divided into 4 classes. Class sizes at Shottery are small, on average 25 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.



Our Vision

Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness,

gentleness, and self control.

Galatians 522-23:


We believe these qualities will enable our children to be successful learners who want to make a positive contribution to the wider community, and so develop life- long skills that will enable them to have the best possible futures.


Shottery School is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England School, which benefits from strong links with the local church, also dedicated to St. Andrew. We are proud of and value our church connections and work together to maximise links and opportunities from assemblies, Godly Play sessions and church services.


At Shottery St Andrew’s School we work as a close team of Governors, staff, parents and children, to achieve our aims and to fulfil our vision. Governors support the school to continue to improve outcomes for all and aim to improve the effectiveness of leadership and management of the school.


As a school community we support the children to develop positive attitudes and values for themselves and ensure our children are as safe, healthy, confident and happy as possible.


Parents play a large part in the success of Shottery School and we welcome parents to show an interest in their children’s work and learning, their achievements and in their problems. Parents are kept informed through half-termly class newsletters, Dojo messages, weekly whole school newsletters, the website, two parents’ consultation evenings and an open evening each school year, as well as 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. We also benefit from the support of  an active FSSA (Friends of Shottery St Andrew's) who organise events for children and families as well as raising funds for the school.
