Learning Together, Rooted in God.
OUR SCHOOL STATEMENT OF INTENT
Learning together, rooted in God, pupils at St Lawrence Church of England Primary School are easy to distinguish by the personal qualities they present. They are happy, confident, articulate children with a love of learning, who recognise and celebrate their own individuality and that of other members of our community. They are generous, kind and welcoming; they are forgiving and understand justice. With God by their side, they face the world with resilience, integrity and joy.
The school Statement of Intent is at the very
heart of everything we do in school. In science, we implement it in a variety
of ways including:
Learning Outdoors. Throughout the year, good use is made of
the outdoor classroom and our fantastic wildlife areas, which allow
children to develop their resilience and confidence in working practically
in science. Children have the opportunity to make a mess and get things
wrong in a safe but practical way.
there is a strong focus on working scientifically. Children learn how to
carry out their own fair scientific investigations and what to do with the
result they achieve. This means that, alongside their subject knowledge,
our pupils leave primary school with a scientific and inquisitive mindset
and the ability to confidently articulate their opinions, thoughts and
feelings about key scientific principles covered in the National
for excellence. We have a significant number of very able children in
school and pride ourselves on challenging the able, gifted and talented
children to stretch their potential to its maximum. Children achieve
this through extension activities, Gifted and Talented Hubs and
participation in exciting STEM activities with cluster schools. These
provide children with opportunities to use their understanding and
abilities to work as part of a team, whilst also allowing them the
opportunity to express their own interests and demonstrate their talents.
It also allows for children’s’ strengths inside the classroom to be
transferred to something fun and enjoyable outside of it.
