RE, Worship and Values

Jesus said 

" I am the vine and you are the branches. If you remain rooted in me, and I in you, you will bear much fruit". 

John 15 v 5

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.

Mrs Loughran would love to hear from pupils who are taking up this challenge so if they can get in touch using my email ( that would be great.  


Spirited Arts Competition
Here is Hannah's beautiful entry... well done Hannah.



The school Statement of Intent is at the very heart of everything we do in school. In Religious Education lessons and in Worship, as we learn together, we are rooted in God.  All that we do conveys this message from the smallest of interactions to the hardest of challenges.  At the heart of our learning lies our Christian values – these are what make us distinct.  Children learn values for life, which have prominence throughout everything we do and are celebrated through half-termly award ceremonies.  Values such as happiness, respect, resilience and joy permeate all we do.  The teaching of Religious Education is at the heart of our curriculum; our practice is creative and we use as many other subjects as possible to bring God’s message to our children. Our links with St Lawrence Church and local community mean that events held in church and school are very well attended. This really is a school at the heart of its village.
