School Vision and Values
'At St Osmund's School, we believe every child is a child of God and has a great future ahead of them. We are a family of faith who live by faith preparing children to become independent and prepared for whatever life has in store for them. We are a small, happy school which promotes a love of knowledge and a culture of learning.
Through our challenging teaching environment every child aspires to develop their talents and gifts as they discover, learn and explore God's world. We nurture Catholic values in our children which mirror the values of their home life; especially self-respect, respecting others, working with others, justice for all, fortitude, a care for the earth and compassion for the poor. Our School Motto: Show your Faith by the way you live.'
Created in February 2017, with input from pupils, staff, parents and Governors
The school’s direction is driven from its Mission Statement and Motto ‘To show our faith by the way we live.' We provide a Catholic education based on the life and teaching of Jesus Christ and seek to live out the values of Jesus Christ in all that we do. Our school values draw upon Gospel values and underpin all aspects of school life. In doing so, we aim to provide an environment in which the dignity of each person as a child of God is recognised, developed and nurtured; and to promote the full potential of each child through a curriculum which develops spiritual, academic, social and emotional growth.
A pupil of St Osmund's (and their family) belongs to a culture of safety, friendship, happiness and success. Along with the Gospel values, pupils at St Osmund's follow our Golden Values of Listening, Kindness, Honesty, Responsibility, Respect and Pride which supports our Catholic ethos. These Golden Values permeate all areas school life and it is our aim for pupils to continue to recognise them as the grow into responsible, confident citizens. Our Pupil Council and Year 6 Pupil Leadership teams play an important role in ensuring pupil voice is a prominent part of our school culture. Children understand and recognise the importance of British values, which are modelled within many of our school practices.
