The Connect Newsletter dated 2nd October 2015 outlined the current funding formula and how this means that Wiltshire is one of the lowest funded counties. Our local MP, Michelle Donelan, has been appointed a patron of the campaign for Fair School Funding and has launched a petition to Government on this issue, pressing for the earliest possible introduction of a new National Funding Formula to redress this imbalance. To read more about this issue see the downloads section below.
During the week of 5th – 9th October, St Laurence School will be welcoming the artists from the OAE for its annual opera residency.

Starting on 4 October and continuing until mid-November Wiltshire Council have planned a series of roadworks which will impact travel to and from School. The PDF below gives more information and the relevant web link at Wiltshire Council.
We look forward to welcoming prospective parents and students currently in Y6 & Y5 at our Opening Evening later today. There will be presentations about the School and opportunities to tour the site observing students and staff at work.

On Friday 2nd October, many of our staff students will be running, jogging or walking 5km after school to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
Cancer Research UK’s work is funded entirely by the fundraising efforts of people like us, so the more of you who unite with us in the fight against cancer, the more money we can raise to beat cancer sooner.
We are grateful for any donation you are able to make and thank you for your support.
