In 2016, after thirteen wonderful years of headship at a primary school in Shrewsbury, I decided a change of scenery was needed and moved here to St. Lawrence’s, in the lovely town of Church Stretton surrounded by gorgeous hills. After six years of necessary changes and improvements, I am now delighted with how we are performing. This is a super school and nursery with so many strengths – the main one being the bubbly and confident children who are keen to learn and do their best. The governors, members of staff and parents work closely together to ensure that the pupils’ needs are met and that they enjoy school and achieve their potential. We have aspirations to become an outstanding school and I truly believe that this is achievable through high expectations and striving for excellence in all areas. Prospective parents are most welcome to visit the school for a tour and a chance to see us learning together and having fun!
Our School Vision is as follows:
The whole school community united in helping others and the environment locally, nationally and internationally (The Good Samaritan) and ensuring that every pupil becomes an ambassador of The St Lawrence Way (Be Responsible; Encourage Others; Show Respect and Try Our Best). Our school will impact positively upon pupils’ academic attainment, curriculum experience, attitudes and behaviour; as well as providing a broad range extra-curricular opportunities.
