Visions, Values and Christian Ethos

Our visions and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.


Our Vision

We want St Laurence Church Junior School to be a good school in which people have confidence.

At St Laurence Church Junior School ‘Every Child Matters to God’, and every child is at the heart of all that we do.


Our School Values

In July 2016, the School Council asked their classes to do some work on choosing our Christian School Values.  Children were given 12 to choose from, completed work upon these and discussed how they would fit into the St Laurence community, encompassing all that we hope for.  A vote was then completed to identify the top 6 values within each class. These were then analysed and the final 6 were presented to the whole school and Governors by the School Council, who did a great job at explaining why they had been chosen and how their classes felt they reflected life at St Laurence Junior.


Our chosen 6 values: Peace, Forgiveness, Trust, Thankfulness, Friendship and Endurance


Mission Statement

St Laurence Church Junior School provides a high quality education in a secure, caring and challenging environment that promotes a love of learning both inside and outside of the classroom.  We strive to enable every boy and girl to become a happy, healthy, independent and well balanced member of the community in order that they are prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences which life may offer them.

The ethos of the school is firmly based on the teachings of Jesus Christ; commitment, responsibility, respect, love of one another and most importantly love of Christ himself.

We are wholly committed to working with and supporting all those who are involved in the education and support of our pupils.  We are dedicated to leading the whole school community towards tolerance, understanding, justice and sensitivity towards the needs of others, regardless of gender, race, culture, sexuality, disability and faith.
