Our Mission Statement
Lawford Primary School aims to provide
"High quality learning and caring, together in an encouraging Christian environment."
High Quality Learning
Here at Lawford it is our aim to provide a curriculum that has high, but realistic expectations of pupils. Our whole school planning system allows teachers to set clear objectives and provide an enriching, interesting and varied curriculum that allows every child to achieve their highest possible attainment.
High Quality Caring
The children at Lawford thrive in a supportive atmosphere where they take a personal pride in their own and others' achievements. Children have a positive attitude to their academic work and are encouraged to take part in decision making that will enhance their learning. Teachers act as role models, developing good relationships between pupils, parents and governors. They treat all children with the respect, politeness and integrity that they deserve.
An Encouraging Christian Environment
Being a Church of England school means that we offer children a carefully structured programme of R.E, PSHE, assemblies and Christian teaching that values each child as a unique person. The spiritual, cultural, moral and social education enables children to develop the knowledge and skills to value and respect the differences between themselves and others. The environment encourages children to care for and respect others at the school and those in the wider community by embracing the ideals of fairness, justice, hard work, forgiveness, truth, honesty, integrity and caring for the environment.
Lawford Church of England Primary School serves 210 children, including those from the parish of Little Bromley. The buildings are spaciously designed with wide corridors leading to well proportioned classrooms. Every classroom has direct access to the extensive playgrounds, large playing field, bird sanctuary and the wide outdoor learning environment our school has to offer. There is a large assembly hall which is also equipped for physical education and a wide variety of other uses. The adjacent kitchen prepares hot meals which are served in the hall at lunch time.
