Children and staff at St Laurence C of E Junior Academy have been working towards becoming a Heritage School. In recognition of their commitment to embedding local heritage into the curriculum, Helen Spencer from Historic England travelled down from London to award the school with their Heritage Award plaque. Helen praised the children for their commitment to learning about their local community and has showcased some of their work on the Historic England website for others to use as inspiration.

The children should be proud of their hard work in gaining this award, being the first Junior School in Thanet to achieve it. Michelle Palmer Headteacher stated, “I am extremely proud of our children and their commitment to learning about their local area and cannot wait to see what they next achieve”.
