Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the churches at parish and diocesan level.

This is a church school that 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.

St Lawrence C of E VA Primary School serves a priority area of the parishes of Napton (inclusive of Tomlow and Chapel Green), Upper Shuckburgh and Lower Shuckburgh.

Every year the governing body will review and publish information concerning the school’s admission policy.  This will confirm the maximum number of children to be admitted to the school as a whole – the Published Admissions Number (PAN) which is currently 26 – and explain how places will be allocated.
