Our Ethos and Values
The school's philosophy revolves around the words of Christ and this commitment to the values of the Gospel is central to the life of the school in order that we are
Through God's grace, a community growing in knowledge and understanding.
As a community, we value every member of our school, home and parish family. We work together in a caring, friendly and hardworking atmosphere, where everyone is encouraged to give their best, and we live out the Gospel values of Jesus through showing our love and respect for each other.
Everyone at St Laurence School is special and talented, and these attributes are further nurtured and developed so that when the children move closer to adulthood, they have a firm foundation in Faith, in the joy of learning, and a stronger belief in themselves. At St Laurence School we encourage the children to celebrate their successes and achievements in all aspects of their lives, and we fully support them in their learning. We are a family who are open and honest, enjoy making and seeing progress, have fun in learning, and strive to do our very best.
In Spring 2018, Ofsted rated us as ‘good’. In our most recent RE inspection, Summer 2022, we were once again judged as “outstanding”. The staff and Governors are very proud of the pervasive Catholic ethos of our school and parents identify it as a strength of the school.
