Catholic Social Teaching

Catholic Social Teaching

Catholic Social Teaching (CST) underpins the work of the school and the principles are interwoven within our curriculum and wider school life.


As members of the Catholic Church, we are called upon to preserve the dignity of all human beings, to care for creation and to reach our sisters and brothers in need.  These principles form part of Catholic Social Teaching, a body of work developed by Church leaders over the centuries.  Pope Francis emphasises that it is our duty to work together to bring about a more just and peaceful world: to put love into action.


At St. Osmund’s we place great emphasis on the importance that our children can articulate the connection between Jesus’ teaching and ‘showing their faith by the way they live’ .  We teach our children that we are all made in the image of God, and about the importance of putting the needs of others before ourselves, respecting the dignity of all people and how we are stewards of God’s beautiful creation with a duty to do all we can to preserve it for future generations.
