To launch our new catering service at school, we offered a parent taster session. We gave every parent the opportunity to come and try various exciting items off our new lunchtime menu. The food was delicious and a big thank you goes to our amazing cook Cheryl Hogan!

For our Olympics week we were very privileged to have Jenna Downing come to visit the school.
Inline skating champion Jenna Downing is none other than the World’s Number One Inline Skater, a 10 x British Champion and an X-Games silver medallist . All by the age of 21! A natural competitor, Jenna has competed in rollerblading events since the tender age of 8 and has amassed a lifetime of awards competing across the globe in televised and major international events. After turning pro at the age 12 (making Jenna the youngest female skater in the world to ever turn pro) there was no stopping her and Jenna has gone on to become an institution in British rollerblading.
The children absolutely loved the visit and learnt a lot about pursuing your dreams!
Following our OFSTED inspecton in February - We have received confirmation that we have been identified as one of the top 100 performing and improved schools in 2016.
We are the only school in our region to achieve this accolade. Parents, Governors, staff and pupils should be very proud of this recognition.
Well done to everyone!

Children in year 4 have been learning to swim at Eccles Leisure Centre. On Tuesday 1st March some of the year 4 class took part in a local swimming gala against other schools from the area. We had 7 participants that all tried their best and got the chance to experience swimming in a competitive race. Mr Goldsmith and Miss Cregan were poolside with the children giving them words of advice and general encouragement. Miss Leyland was also watching from the viewing gallery with the children's parents. The year 4 children tried their best and competed well, making the teachers very proud and in turn representing St Andrews in the perfect way. Although the children did not win any medals, Millie Green won her heat! This was a real triumph for the children and the school and we hope to have more competitors next year.
Pupils in Years 1-6 all attended a matinee performance of Mary Poppins at the Palace Theatre in Manchester on Thursday. The awe and wonder it inspired was magical. The pupils loved the experience and we were very proud to have taken them. Indeed members of the public also attending the performance made a point of telling our teachers how well the children behaved and how much they obviously enjoyed it. I would like to thank our children for making us so proud again and our teachers for staying so late with the children on Thursday evening before starting all their lesson preparation for the next day. It was a fantastic visit!
