St Lawrence


'Teach children how they should live, and they will remember it all their life.' (Proverbs 22:6)

Our Vision in action

The Lost Sheep Assembly

We had some very special visitors to assembly to help us to remember the Parable. of the Lost Sheep. Richard and his mum offered to come to school with 2 of their lambs. It was all very exciting and we loved seeing the lambs. Richard answered questions and told us lots of facts about sheep. 

 Christmas Pause Day

Our recent Pause Day had the theme of ‘Hope’ and the message of Hope brought by the angels at the Nativity. We created gift bags to share this message with the local community and our volunteers. Each class created something to add and the School Council baked shortbread with Mrs Draper. We then took a group of children to deliver them and sing some carols in the village. Our gifts were very well received and we had some lovely letters from the recipients.  

Christmas and Easter Experience in Church

St Lawrence Church very kindly invited the children to take part in two different experiences in church, one at Easter and the other at Christmas. At each experience there were 6 different activities which the children took part in, learning about the Easter and Christmas stories. The children really enjoyed taking part in both experiences.

Nativity Christmas Performance

Here is a photograph of Reception Class at their first Christmas performance of ‘Poems and Carols’.  The audiences including parents and families, governors, children from our local pre-school, and guests from Chobham’s elderly folks, who all enjoyed tea and mince pies courtesy of the Friends of St Lawrence. 

Christingle Church Service

Our school choir sang beautifully at the Christingle Church service at St Lawrence Church.

Wintershall Travelling Crib

The Wintershall Travelling Crib stopped at St Lawrence’s school field on the way to Bethlehem. The children really enjoyed taking part in some very special workshops and met the characters of the Nativity story as they started their journey towards the stable this Advent with the Shepherd, Wise Men, Mary, Angels and the innkeeper’s donkey.

CYE Christmas Assembly

The Christian Youth Enterprise came to our school to do a special assembly for the children, which they really enjoyed.

Engage Christmas Assembly

Engage Woking Schools very kindly came into our school to perform a Christmas Assembly which the children thoroughly enjoyed. 


Harvest Festival

We celebrated Harvest Festival by taking part in a special service at St Lawrence Church. We were very proud of the St Lawrence School choir who sang beautifully, alongside the other local schools at the St Lawrence Church Sunday service for Harvest Festival.

For Harvest Festival, we had many kind donations from parents for the Woking Food Bank who distribute it to individuals, refugees and families in need.

Peace Day Celebration

On Saturday 23rd September Woking People of Faith celebrated their 10th Peace Day celebration. There was music and songs from different religions based on how the hope for peace unites us. We entered their Peace celebration competition in 2 categories – poems and posters. Our talent and care for others earned us many awards that were presented by the Mayor of Woking.

Remembrance Day

We lay a poppy wreath by ‘The Cannon’ in Chobham in remembrance not only of the fallen soldiers of Flanders Field, but also to commemorate the sacrifices of veterans in all conflicts.

Charity Event- Shoebox Appeal

This year St Lawrence Primary decided to support a Christmas box appeal run by House of Opportunity (, to try and help some of the poorest people in Europe to have a more joyful Christmas. We took action by filling 33 shoeboxes with appropriate items and sending them to people in need.  This also gave all our children the chance to experience the joy of giving unconditionally.  Thank you for all your shoebox contributions!

 Our Values Tree

Our Values Tree full of leaves given to children who were noticed for showing our values Kindness, High Aspirations, Independence, Empathy, Courage and Respect around school.

 Classroom Reflection Areas

Each classroom has a Christian reflection area, which are changed and added to regularly.  They are a place where the children can reflect or choose to pray.

The areas have a cross as its focal point and will include other artefacts, pictures and verses to engage the children in thought and prayer. They are also areas where children can share their own thoughts and ideas and ask questions for the class to discuss.

Reflection Books

We encourage all pupils to be reflective. The activities and discussions following Collective Worship give the opportunity to reflect and learn in creative ways. They help pupils to explore their own and other's views and beliefs. They are encouraged to ask questions, value the thoughts of others and share their own thoughts and it is a time to learn from and about others. These reflections are collected in class books, which when completed, are shared across the school. 


Class Candles

Each class has a candle which they bring to Whole School  Worship on Mondays  The candles are  lit at the start of the worship a symbol that we are joining together to focus on something more than  These are a symbol that God is with us and are also a focal point for the children. At the end of worship, the candles are blown out and the class candles are taken back to the classrooms, bringing God and the learning from worship with us throughout our school.

Bee Board

We have a 'Bee Board' in each class to celebrate pupils demonstrating our  St Lawrence Values and Attitudes. If 20 children get onto the Bee Board the whole class earns a bee for their Bee Pot. Once there are 20 bees the class gets some Golden Time where they choose a celebratory fun activity for the whole class to share.
