Our Vision

The Vision of the Bowland Federation of Schools is:



We reach up to God to show us the way



We reach inside for the courage and wisdom of the Holy Spirit, to help us reach our goals



We reach out to everyone with the kindness and compassion of Jesus





Our Vision is based on this verse from one of Paul’s letters to the Phillippians. Paul is talking about how he is determined to reach his goal of eternal life through Jesus.

We know that we are all called to run the race that God has set before us. Every Christian has a specific purpose that God Himself has called them to achieve. Each has their own unique goal to attain and that goal is chosen by God, for it is God who works in each of us to help us do what pleases him.

We know that each one of our children is unique and that God has a plan for each of them. We encourage every member of our school family to strive to reach God’s goal, putting mistakes behind them, just like Paul and reaching for success.

This applies not just to our children’s spiritual life but to their lives as learners – we don’t give up when things get tricky, we are resilient and resourceful and we press on towards our goals. 


Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills

We will foster in our children a life-long love of learning. We will nurture individual talents to create active, adventurous learners who are confident in themselves and their abilities .

Educating for hope and aspiration

Our children will be reflective, resilient and resourceful learners. They will see difficulties as learning opportunities and face them with wisdom and creativity, knowing there is no limit to what they can achieve.
