I am exceptionally proud to be the Headteacher of Laurance Haines School. Our school population is a reflection of the rich cultural diversity of the community. Our children originate from many different countries, speaking a large number of languages. I believe this makes our school a vibrant, exciting and truly special place to be. We pride ourselves on offering a broad and balanced curriculum which empowers the children to directly influence the direction of their learning. Providing rich experiences, both inside and outside of the classroom, creates a buzz and an excitement around it. Teachers respond to the interests and ideas of the children whilst guiding them to ensure key skills are developed.
