Lowdham C of E Primary School

‘Shine Like Stars’

Aims, Visions & Values

Our vision for education is deeply Christian, with Jesus' promise of 'life in all its fullness' at its heart.

In line with the Church of England's role as the established Church, our vision is for the common good of the whole community.

Here at Lowdham CofE Primary School, we are shaping the future. We are building the foundations for a passion for learning and exploration, for developing caring and independent thinkers. Through our exciting and enriched curriculum, we are helping to create scientists, poets, artists and explorers, readers, dancers, musicians and lovers of sports. Everything we plan, teach and encourage here is designed deliberately to develop young learners who feel they can excel in different areas and experience plenty. Our motto underpins all this: ‘Shine like stars’ from the book of Philippians (2:15) is the driving force behind our conversations, our plans and is seen in and out of the classrooms every day.


We aim to have every child shining. Regardless of their background, their context or their arrival in school, we present opportunities from learning in the classroom to residentials, visits and our Forest School. Everything is shaped to give these all-important chances to the children in our care. 


We understand the obvious need for children to leave us at the end of Key Stage 2 being good readers, confident mathematicians and with a strong sense of purpose and self-esteem. Our curriculum is designed as such to enable children and staff to flourish in many ways and for them to exceed expectations – to shine! 


Our curriculum is built around engaging topics that fit in with the National Curriculum and suit the area in which we live. The children have a voice that is heard through our worship leaders, our sports leaders, our pupil council and our eco team. They suggest ideas and initiatives that will engage the other children and that aid their learning of key concepts. Many educational visits and visitors are used to help bring the curriculum to life and to give the children access to the past and the future.


As a Church of England school, we uphold the CofE’s values and entwine them with our own. We have five Lowdham Learner values that are all linked with a key Bible verse. These values underpin our collective worship time, the policies we create, the decisions we make and the flow of learning. All five values unpack our motto and show the children how they can shine like stars.

Love others “My command is this: love each other as I have loved you.” John 15 v 12

Everyone join in “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” Psalm 133 v 1

Always do your best “Work at everything you do with all your heart.” Colossians 3 v 23

Reach out “Do to others as you want them to do to you.” Luke  6 v 31

Never give up “I can do all this by the power of Christ. He gives me strength.” Philippians 4 v 13

The Church of England's vision for education is that all schools offer this:


Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills: enabling discipline, confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.

Educating for hope and aspiration: enabling healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.

Educating for community and living well together: a core focus on relationships, participation in communities and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.

Educating for dignity and respect: the basic principle of respect for the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth.
