Our Vision and Values

Our Vision was updated during the spring term 2019. Children, staff, parents and Governors were involved in creating our new vision. 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


Strong in Faith

Kind in Heart

United in Success


At the heart of our vision are our core values of Hope, Love, Trust, Forgiveness and Faith. We want everyone to feel welcome, safe and included in our school and aim that all pupils, families, staff and the wider community will be part of the family of Cowley St Laurence and through great discovery will flourish together as part of God’s world.

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
