Learning and Teaching



At St Lawrence Primary School we believe that:

• Teaching is about establishing a learning environment that encourages an individual to develop to their fullest potential – intellectually, socially, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

• Learning should be relevant and purposeful. It should aim to involve the child in experiences that promote success, enjoyment, responsibility, co-operation and respect.

• Teaching and learning strategies should provide opportunities for engagement, challenge, expression, creativity and motivation.

• Learning will be enhanced when there is provision for on-going support, affirmation and feedback.

• Learning promotes student’s sense of belonging to the faith community of parish and school and enables them to become more active and responsible citizens.

• Strong teacher-student relationships enhance teaching and learning.
