The inspectors recognised that the children at St. Andrews have positive attitudes to work and play and show respect to others. They found children polite, friendly and helpful and found personal development was evident.
Parental satisfaction with the school was high and parents were praised for the valuable contribution they make to the children's education.
A Religious Education inspection was carried out by the Salford Diocese who found the school has a clear sense of purpose and vision with high expectations of all. The report makes clear the self esteem and personal dignity of pupils is valued and fostered.
