St Lawrence Church of England Primary School

‘Achieving together Learning for life in all its fullness’

Inspired by John 10:10

Jesus said 'I have come that you may have life in all its fullness' (John 10:10). He calls us to a full life in mind, body, heart and spirit. Therefore we believe the purpose of education is to nurture and enable every child to thrive and to be the person they are fully capable of being.



Our vision is to be a school rooted in clear Christian values, where children participate, excel and are proud of their achievements.
