Our Aims and Values

Our School motto: Growing together in learning, love and faith.

 This guides us in what we are doing here and our daily purpose within our community.


Our Christian Vision

Every member of the Cowbit St Mary’s Church of England Primary School community is welcomed and nurtured, enabling all to flourish.  As children of God, each child will thrive emotionally, spiritually and academically through our enriching curriculum providing both opportunities and possibilities.  We empower our whole school community to be hopeful about the future and to be drivers of positive change.  We are committed to ensuring that each child is as individual as a mustard seed and they are encouraged to grow to their full potential and to live life in all its fullness.

From little seeds great and wonderful things grow and flourish.

Our values are our roots, which help us grow over time.  We have six core values:

  • Respect for our school, our environment and our community

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.John 13:34

  • Perseverance when faced with challenge

“Let us not become weary in doing good” Galatians 6:9

  • Forgiveness to let go, move on and learn from our ways

“Forgive and you will be forgiven.”  Luke 6:37

  • Responsibility to take control of our learning and behaviour

For God gave us a spirit of power and love and self control” 2 Timothy 1:17

  • Kindness for everyone and everything

“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them.” Matthew 7:12

  • Hope for the future

“For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord… “plans to give you hope and a future”  Jeremiah 29:11
