Church School

At St Oswald’s our six core values are:

  • Respect
  • Compassion
  • Friendship
  • Service
  • Trust
  • Justice

These reflect our Christian foundation as a Church of England School and provide the basis for everything we do and aim to achieve at St Oswald’s. Most importantly, they are at the heart of all the relationships that exist between the members of our school community – children, parents, staff, governors and our local community.

Our school aims are summarised in our motto:

                                            Learning for all, caring for each other, preparing for the future                                               Let us encourage one another – Hebrews 10.25

“St Oswald’s vision and values are woven throughout the whole curriculum.”

Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary with sincere and respectful relationships the norm.”
