Dear Parents & Carers,

The world may have been in turmoil in recent months but St Lawrence’s has remained at the heart of the local community as a beacon of hope and happiness. Indeed, it has been our pleasure to hold a ‘Festival Week for our past Yr 6s’ to mark their moving on, and to put into place a full programme of transition that has been available for every child across the school, including all of our beautiful new Reception class that will be with us in September.

I very much look forward to offering the full curriculum on a full-time basis to every child across Little Lawrences and the main school. With full regard to all the guidelines, most of what St Lawrence’s is noted for is back again: a broad range of extra-curricular clubs, music tuition, a programme of sports and a continued focus on science provision alongside excellent teaching of Maths, English and RE.

Our school Journal and Facebook page will continue to be centrepieces of our celebration of achievement in the absence of whole-school assemblies. Why not take a virtual tour of the school and get in touch if we can help you in any way?

I look forward to meeting with you.

Warmest wishes to you all,

John Brine.
