Visions and Values
"Our school is a place where we all come together as one community to learn, have fun and make lasting friendships all under God's love and care."
Our vision 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.
We endeavour to provide a safe, enjoyable, learning environment, coupled with strong Catholic values which allow all our students to achieve their maximum potential inside and out-side the classroom. Our motto ‘High standards through Christian values’ encapsulate perfectly what we believe at St. Lawrence and we wish to extend these ideas to anyone who wishes to be a part of our family.
Promoting Fundamental British Values
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.
The Key Values are:
- rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect
- tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
