Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Standish Lower Ground Saint Anne's.

It is a privilege and pleasure to be the Headteacher at this wonderful school.  Since taking over in September, it has been fantastic to get to know the wonderful children who attend St Anne's and they all make every day a special one.  The children are kind, polite and caring and they make us and their parents proud.  The staff are very dedicated and work hard every day to ensure the best possible outcomes for our children.

Our school's mission is rooted in the teachings of Jesus.

Matthew 5:16 'In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.'

The school was inspected in July under the SIAMs framework, which evaluates a school's distinctive Christian vision.  The inspection was very successful.  

'School leaders have established a Christian vision which truly reflects the local context, inspiring a welcoming, diverse community.   Leaders at all levels are motivated by the vision to ‘nurture, grow and achieve’.  Therefore, pupils, including those considered to be vulnerable, flourish.'

It has been a busy autumn term, and it has been great to share the children's talents with their families.  We held a very successful Macmillan Coffee morning (and afternoon), raising over £500.  The children sang enthusiastically and fantastically and enjoyed tea and cake (lots of it too!) with their families.

Harvest Festival celebrations were led by Rev's Andrew and Rev'd Jenny and the children shared their learning about Harvest with their families.  Rev'd Andrew and Rev'd Jenny also both celebrate worship assemblies each week in school.

The run-up to Christmas was very exciting at St Anne's. The Nativity performance was very, very special and the key stage two Christmas Carol concert was full of joy and dancing in the pews!  The younger children enjoyed a special day at Windmill Farm and were lucky enough to meet Father Christmas!  Key Stage two children loved their time at the Chill Factore.

If you would like to visit the school at any time, please contact the school office.  It would be our pleasure to show you around our wonderful school.
