Our school vision is ‘God has a plan’ (Jeremiah 29:11). At St Oswald’s, we believe that God has a wonderful plan for us all and we seek to discover that plan on a daily basis, weaving this into our school values and all aspects of school.


Sitting below love lies our school’s ethos: Aspire, Believe, Connect. As easy as A, B, C, this statement is easy to remember and most importantly represents what we want our children to do in every aspect of their education and lives.

Core Christian Values

Our vision is lived out by seven core Christian values that each link to one aspect of Aspire, Believe, Connect. As children aspire to be the best they can be in every way, they will grow in wisdom. In order to believe in themselves and develop their own beliefs about the world around them, our children are taught about the importance of trust and strength on their journey. We also believe in the values of peace and friendship in helping us to connect with those around us. Binding together all of these and very much at the heart of our values – and indeed the Christian gospel/Jesus’ teaching – is love (John 3:16; Mark 12:31).
