St. Oswald's Vision

Our vision, for all members of our community, stems from:

'Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.' (Proverbs 22:6)

Through basing our vision on the bible teaching above we will promote an inclusive school community, rooted in mutual respect, understanding and kindness towards others.

'Life in all its fullness' (John 10:10)

In living out the statement above our vision is:

To develop resilience and a love of learning, which will enable the children to achieve their aspirations.


Our chosen Christian values support us in achieving our overall vison for our school. We have chosen 9 core Christian values with an aim of showing children the way to develop into resilient, caring members of the community. Our core Christian values are Community, Service, Justice, Creation, Friendship, Thankfulness, Peace, Hope and Perseverance.

Most of these Values can be said to be ‘human Values’ and inclusive for people with different or diverse faiths, and also for those with no faith.  As a Church of England school, however, we have rooted these Values in the Bible.  We have established 9 Values that are particularly important to members of our school family and support us in driving our vison forward.


Be it known to all who enter here,

that Christ is the reason for this school.

The unseen but ever present teacher in its classes.

The model for all its staff. 

The inspiration for its pupils.
