St Lawrence Learner


'Teach children how they should live, and they will remember it all their life.'

-Proverbs 22:6 

At St Lawrence, we believe that a child’s time at Primary School is  precious and extremely valuable and our job is to use it well.  In thinking about how we do this, we have created the concept of a St Lawrence Learner focusing on the attitudes and skills necessary to learn effectively and then we have considered what this would look like in every year group.

We also believe that before a child can achieve their full academic potential they need to have the right attitude towards learning, independence, an ability to get on with others and a clear understanding of how their behaviour can affect not only their own learning but that of others too.

In the St Lawrence Learner Through the School Years you will find a description of a St Lawrence Learner through each year group and a description of our expectations of how our children might grow and develop in their years in our School. Your child’s teachers will discuss and report on your child as a St Lawrence Learner and the key areas of growth and development throughout the year-we believe that these are crucial areas which underpin academic success and our mission to educate the whole child.
