About Us

Cowling Community Primary School is an exciting place to learn for children between the ages of four to eleven. We are a village school situated on the edge of the Dales close to the Yorkshire-Lancashire border. There are currently 139 pupils on role at the school and it is controlled and funded by the Local Education Authority.  Our talented staff team strive to put the fun into learning and our core purpose is to ensure that every child has the chance to shine. Our strong family and inclusive ethos is reflected in how our pupils care for each other.  

Ethos and Values

Our School Vision

Cowling Community Primary School is a place where every child has the chance to shine.  This underpins everything we do and we will support every child to achieve their very best.

We provide a broad, balanced and progressive knowledge and skill based curriculum, which is built upon firm foundations.  Our teaching stimulates motivation, imagination and curiosity.

We ensure our children value difference and show high levels of respect and courtesy.  All members of our school promote an inclusive, welcoming and safe community, which meets the needs of all. We believe in working together to make our school, community and world a better place. At Cowling Community Primary School, we celebrate the diversity of the world and help our children broaden their horizons.

We support all aspects of our children’s health and well-being and prepare them to meet the challenges and issues faced in the modern world.  Our children are encouraged to remain motivated by long-term goals, seeing links between the effort they make now and the benefits they will see in the future.  We encourage them to persevere through and learn from any setbacks they encounter. We promote positive moral attributes (courage, honesty, generosity, integrity, social confidence and a sense of justice).

British Values

The school promotes the Department for Education’s five part definition of British Values:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
