OUR SCHOOL

Westbury-sub-Mendip is a charming and friendly village and is just the sort of place you would expect to find a traditional rural primary school.  St. Lawrence’s School, although small and friendly, is also a place of high academic achievement and believes in creating the sort of environment where children love to learn. 

 

 

St. Lawrence’s is a Church of England Primary School. The atmosphere in each of the classrooms is warm and convivial and the children are encouraged to learn and play together, creating that unique feel of a small and well run school.  We have recently established a School Council where each year group is represented and the children are able to have a say in how their school is run.

St. Lawrence’s accepts children from a wide geographical area and there are currently children from Easton, Wookey Hole and Wells as well as Westbury-sub-Mendip.

  • St. Lawrence’s has consistently appeared in the “top ten” Somerset primary schools in government league tables based on SATs results.

  • St. Lawrence’s has small class sizes giving excellent teacher to pupil ratios and utilises teaching assistants for extra one to one or group tuition.

  • St. Lawrence’s has a strong emphasis on the traditional Christian values of love of fellow man and fair play.

  • St. Lawrence’s is a village school with very close links to the local community.

At present we have three classes:  

EARLY YEARS (Reception and Year 1)
MIDDLE YEARS (Yr 2, Yr 3 and Yr 4)
UPPER YEARS
(Yr 5 and Yr 6)

The arrangement is dependent on the size of year groups, which can change from year to year.

School04-5jpg.jpg (17102 bytes)We aim to be a welcoming school and parents, governors and members of the community are often found helping in the classrooms, assisting with sports activities and accompanying the children on school visits and sports fixtures.   We have a good relationship with other schools in the area, as we are one of twelve schools that form the Wells Federation of Schools.  This includes The Blue School, Wells, thus ensuring a smooth transition from primary to secondary education for our Year 6 pupils.

To learn more about St. Lawrence’s and to meet the staff, please call us and we’ll be more than pleased to show you what makes our school special.
