Please come and enjoy them with our up and coming Ardeley Sponsored Walk on Friday 23rd May 2014.

Preparations are in hand for the traditional Ardeley School annual  Sponsored Walk.  Our lovely Mrs Colman has been planning a route to Walkern and back, approximately 6 miles. There are a few planned pick up points along the way, but as always we don’t expect to need them.  Every year we watch even the smallest legs make the distance.  The Head of Walkern School, Mr Hall, has agreed to allow us to use their school facilities for lunch and toileting so we won’t have to carry our packed lunches either.

For those of you who are new to this wonderful event, it is a fundraiser with benefits and sponsorship forms have been sent home for all to start fundraising.

This year our proceeds from the walk will be shared between the school and our link school in Kenya.  This year, with support from the FAS, we are planning to install an amazing, new wood and rope climbing frame on the field which we know the children will love.  This should be in place for the end of June and our share of the sponsor money will help towards this new facility.

Check out what we have planned for our sponsorship money.

Now this looks fun!

If you are able to come on the walk and help marshal a group please let Mrs Walsh know as soon as possible to help us to plan the groups.  Refreshments will be available before departure and a cup of tea on return.  The paths are, hopefully,  fairly nettle free and there are no stiles to cross, but we do go along the edges of fields in places which means that pushing buggies would be tricky and please remember that this is a school event so we have to say no dogs, sorry!

So lets get those sponsorship forms completed and get ready for what we be another wonderful Ardeley outing.

Mrs Colman is really pleased to be organising the walk once again.  Ardeley children are so full of determination – always up for a challenge and we are so sure this year will be no different.

Welcome to Ardeley St Lawrence Church of England Primary School.

Ardeley St. Lawrence is a thriving, well resourced primary school in the village of Ardeley, three miles north of Walkern, near Stevenage. It has around 70 children on roll. The building, some of which dates from 1835, is in a rural setting with a garden and spacious playing field. We enjoy the status of being a Voluntary Aided Church of England School which operates in partnership with the Children, School and Families Service of Hertfordshire.

We have a lively and varied timetable with after-school clubs covering sports, crafts and languages and we are the currently holders of the Comet Sports Awards ‘School Of The Year’.

Your child will be welcomed into our school with the care, love and respect due to each unique individual. Our experienced and enthusiastic staff teach our pupils the importance of being truthful, courteous and kind, and to take responsibility for their actions. We are proud of their growth into confident, articulate and thoughtful young people.
