Head's Welcome


A warm welcome from all of us at St Lawrence Primary School.


Our school aims to provide the very best education for your child. More than that, we want to "bring out the best" by nurturing the individual personality and talents of your child, building confidence so that every child flourishes at St Lawrence.




We believe that children learn best through direct experience and our school curriculum is based on this principle which feeds curiosity and inspires learning for pupils of all abilities.

We are proud to be an inclusive school, welcoming children from diverse backgrounds and encouraging each child to develop academic, personal and social skills in a caring and supportive environment. 

At St Lawrence pupils are encouraged to take an increasing responsibility for their learning, which we believe promotes greater confidence and independence, preparing them for their future life.




We create a caring and secure environment where the school's values are recognised and seen in practice. We promote the highest standards of behaviour and believe children should develop strong moral values and a respect for themselves and others. We offer a great variety of academic, sporting and creative opportunities at St Lawrence and encourage all of our pupils to take full advantage of them.

Our ambition is "learning to be outstanding" and achievement is constantly recognised, appreciated and rewarded. St Lawrence is a place where we learn how to learn and where opportunity and fairness for all are at the heart of our educational beliefs. 
We encourage an open door partnership between home and school, maintaining strong links with the community.  


We look forward to meeting you.
