Cake Sale Fundraiser

This terms cake sale fundraiser is being held on Friday 29th March at 3:00pm at the front of St Laurence School. To make the most money we need as many parents as possible to bring in a plate of either homemade or bought cakes that can be sold. Please bring them into Pre-school on the morning of the sale. Thank you for your support.

Children’s Easter Themed Day & Bonnet Parade

On Friday 5th April we will be holding an Easter themed day for the children with Easter activities such as an Easter Egg Hunt, Egg & Spoon Race and more. At the start of the day, children should arrive wearing the Easter bonnet they have made at home ready to parade on the decking at 9:10am. You are more than welcome to stay and watch. Craft items can be found at the Pound Shop, KP Stationers and Hobbycraft. They all stock a full range of Easter items to make this task easier. Put your creative hats on and get making. We look forward to seeing all the brilliant Easter bonnets.

Our Schools App

Did you see our new phone app? Recently we placed a letter in your child’s draw that gave you information on how to download ‘OurSchoolsApp.’ If in the event of a school closure, fundraising event, term date changes, trips and more, you will have the information as soon as possible sent directly to your phone via a push notification. We have tested the app over the past few months and feel that the notifications for the calendar alone will be useful for all. If you need any help downloading or finding the application on your device, then do not hesitate to speak to Joey or Synetta.


We have been asked by St Laurence School to remind parents that after 8:30am parents must not park on the school site when dropping off their child/ren.

Also the yellow zigzag lines outside school indicate no parking in this area. These school keep clear markings are placed at locations outside schools where parked cars could be a hazard to children, so please do not park on them - they’re designed to protect your children from harm.

Comic Relief Fundraising

Our comic relief fundraising day was great fun. All the children enjoyed themselves throughout the day. We raised £22.00 for Comic Relief. Thank you to all those that donated.
