RE Inspection Report


St Lawrence’s RC Primary School is an outstanding Catholic school because:

  • St Lawrence’s is a very inclusive and welcoming community with a strong family ethos. It is very clear as soon as you enter the school that the prime purpose is Catholic education, helping children to develop their faith and to understand that God loves them.
  • The Catholic Life of the school is outstanding. Governors and staff have high expectations and a shared vision with regard to the Catholic mission and ethos of the school. Pupils make an outstanding contribution to the Catholic Life. They take leading roles in activities which promote the school’s ethos within the school and wider community.
  • The quality of Collective Worship is outstanding. It is at the heart of the school. From an early age pupils are encouraged and supported in their ability to plan and lead worship and are confident when praying with the school community.
  • The quality of Religious Education is good. The areas for improvement from the last inspection have all been addressed and the school is continuing to ensure that all pupils make good progress.
