High quality learning and caring together in an encouraging Christian environment.

Recent Events

Year 3 and 4 visit local archaeological investigations

Children in Years 3 and 4 recently visited the archaeological investigations that are taking place on land adjacent to the school, prior to planned building works.

The children met one of archaeologists carrying out the investigations and were interested to see pieces of pottery and areas showing evidence of fire/cooking that have been discovered.

Further investigations will take place over the next few years as work progresses and we hope to have the opportunity to visit again later in the process.

Phonics Evening for Parents

On Tuesday 10th October Mrs Beard led an evening for parents to support their knowledge of how we teach phonics at school. Hopefully our parents went away knowing a little bit more about phonemes, digraphs and slit digraphs. Whilst being competent at phonics is essential for reading, we reiterated the fact that sharing or reading a book to your child is the most valuable activity parents can do  together to encourage the love of reading.

Stakeholders from Lawford C of E Primary School met to review the successes of the academic year and to collectively decide on priorities for the coming academic year.  Stakeholders consisted of children from Year 3 to Year 6, teachers, TAs, governors and the school cook.  Successes highlighted included many enrichment activities such as the 'National Empty Classroom' day, new school visits and a range of visitors who came into school to bring geography and history alive.  Requests for future consideration included more curriculum focused days, e.g. music and sport, reading awards incentive, more occasions for mixing year groups and even 'Teacher of the Term!'
