Ethos Statement

As a voluntary Controlled Church of England School, under the Diocese of Hereford, we have adopted the following ethos statement.

'Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religous character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.
The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils'.


Mission Statement

St Laurence's primary school seeks to promote the human characteristic of endeavour by:

a) adults modelling hard work and commitment;

b) having high expectations;

c) praising and celebrating effort;

d) providing a rich and broad curriculum;

e) providing an extensive extra curricular programme;

f) attempting to ensure that every child has the opportunity to succeed in some aspect of school life.

As a school we recognise that children cannot progress without endeavour. The governors and staff aim to create a culture and environment in which hard work and self-improvement is seen as the norm.

The school also wishes to promote the child's self esteem so that our children have the confidence to take on new challenges and make informed choices throughout their lives.

We want our children to be polite, caring, and tolerant; to take responsibility for their own actions and be aware that their actions affect the lives of others. We want our children to look after their own property and have respect for other people's property.
