‘Believe, achieve and shine brighter together’
At Oldswinford Church of England Primary School we believe that there is a light which shines within each of us – a light that has been given to us by God, which we should use to help us achieve great things.
We believe it is our job to help that light to shine in all that we do and all that we try to do.
‘Everything is possible for one who believes’
As a Church of England school we offer all children an invitation into the Christian faith, a chance for them to develop spiritually as well as intellectually, socially and morally. We want children to believe in their own abilities, to persevere when things are tough and we encourage them to aim high and follow their dreams. We want them to have the confidence to stand up to injustices and to make wise choices.
‘Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart’ Colossians 3:23
We have high aspirations for all our learners and believe that every child should have the chance to reach their potential. We recognise that achievements come in many guises and we look to celebrate each child’s individual talents. We want to ensure our children are prepared for the next steps in their learning journey and they have all the skills they need to flourish and be happy.
Shine brighter together
‘Let your light shine for others, so they may see your good works’
We believe that we all belong to one big family and each of us has a special part to play. We understand the need for our children to be responsible citizens especially when caring about our world and the people around us. As individuals we are unique and special but together, with God, we can be exceptional.
Our vision and 7 key Christian values of love, respect, trust, courage, forgiveness, generosity and joy enable us to ‘believe, achieve and shine brighter together’.
