“The Friends” is a group of parents/carers with children at the school which organises the social and fundraising activities. As a parent of a child at St Lawrence you are automatically a member of The Friends and are welcome to join any meetings, fundraising events and social evenings.
Each year in September, The Friends have an Annual General Meeting (AGM). A committee is elected by parents/carers to organise and run events for the academic year. The committee comprises Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, two representatives per class, a staff representative plus other interested parties.

The Friends constitution document can be found below.  
The key positions this year are:
The Chair - Diane Trueman               
Secretary – Maria Tuthill and Holly Taylor              
Treasurer – Hannah Birch
The money raised by The Friends is spent in consultation with the school. Since 2014 we have spent funds on new IT equipment including iPads and Microsoft tablets along with covers and storage for this equipment, the first stage of our library refurbishment, reading books, the refurbishment of our newly renamed Hazel Hut, children’s Christmas parties and Year 6 leavers’ party and gifts, £100 for each class teacher, Numicons (to support maths learning), 3 minute boxes (early intervention tool), Cornerstones (a package which supports the introduction of the new curriculum), Building Blocks for reception class and 3 horseshoe style tables for Key Stage 1. 
There is a regular Friends newsletter which is emailed out by the office. Any communication for The Friends can be left in the school post box or you can e-mail 
Please note there will be a new Friends email address coming soon.
