Our Vision and Values

Our Vision

Empowering Minds

Nurturing Hearts

Journeying in Faith and Purpose


Our vision and supporting values are rooted in the following passage from the Bible. 

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Our Vision states:

Empowering minds with a foundation rooted in faith, our school embraces Jeremiah. Grounded in love and biblical teachings, we prepare children for purposeful lives. We aim to guide everyone towards fulfilling their God-given potential, to flourish academically, and embrace a future filled with hope. Journeying together; trusting in a limitless future. 

At Cowley St Laurence we want everyone to:

  • be educated for lifelong learning in order to prepare them for the future.
  • make challenging decisions for themselves, and set high aspirations in order to achieve their potential, whilst trusting in God’s plan.
  • have enquiring minds and take risks whilst discovering more about God’s world and their place within it.
  • flourish as individuals, having self-belief and self-worth, as part of a wider Christian community.
  • respect and appreciate everyone as individuals who are unique and different but are all part of God’s family. 
  • develop their integrity, in an ever challenging world, so that they choose the right path and can reflect when things go wrong and show forgiveness.

We achieve this through:

  • Daily worship
  • Reflection
  • Prayer
  • Reflection garden
  • Providing learning opportunities through a challenging, creative curriculum
  • Supportive ethos
  • Christian links with the Church, community and wider world
  • High quality teaching and learning
