At St. Lawrence we seek to provide an excellent education within a caring environment for pupils of all abilities and backgrounds. Our aim is to assist in the full development of all pupils; intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, morally, socially and physically.
The school was originally built in 1868 to provide a Christian education for the children of the Parish. We continue to do this by preserving and developing our religious character in accordance with the principles and practice of the Church of England. We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promote Christian values through the experience we offer to all our pupils. Hand in hand with this, we encourage respect for members of all faiths.
We follow a broad and balanced curriculum as required by the National Curriculum, providing a safe, stimulating environment where all children learn together in a purposeful way, taking pride in their own and other children’s achievements.
We foster positive relationships amongst all members of the school community. We particularly recognise the important role played by parents in our school and see ourselves in partnership with them, maintaining and developing supportive links between school, home, as well as the Church, parish and the wider community.
"The behaviour of the pupils is outstanding.
They talk confidently about their learning and enjoy participating in all aspects of school life."
