Vision and Values

Our vision

Lawford Mead Primary School works in partnership with staff, families and the wider community to create a safe and inspiring environment where children are excited about learning, develop a curiosity about the world and take pride in their progress.  We have high expectations of ourselves and each other so that all children can reach their potential and become confident, life-long learners who make a positive contribution and respect others.
