Our Mission Statement
' loving and caring; welcoming and hospitable; brave and courageous'
Our mission is for every child at St Lawrence to flourish as a child of God. Every child is an individual, and we educate the whole child, so that all our children fulfil their full potential. Our children are young only once, and we will make sure they all get an education that is broad, rich and deep.
We want St Lawrence to be a shining place of excellent teaching and learning where children have fun, and everyone loves learning through our innovative curriculum and exciting activities outside lessons. We aim to be a safe, secure and supportive learning environment, where we encourage children to develop healthy life styles through diet and exercise.
We want all the children and adults at St Lawrence to be welcoming, kind, loving and encouraging. We respect the rights, values and beliefs of all people through the Christian ethos of the school, and care for each other, and serve our community.
We want to work together with parents and guardians to be an inspiring place where everyone lives life in its fullness, and is a light to the whole community.
We think Jesus might say to our school, “St Lawrence School is the shining light of its community. A school on top of a hill cannot be hidden! You don’t light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead you put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let’s make sure St Lawrence School shines in its community, so that everyone might see our good deeds and glorify our Father in heaven.” (Paraphrase of Matthew 5:14-16)
