Our Christian Vision

Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.

The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.  It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers its pupils.

The Christian Vision specific to our school context and community was revisited and redrafted in October 2020 following a consultation with all stakeholders.  This is the new Christian vision. 


'Love Your Neighbour as yourself’ (Luke 10:27)

In God’s family there are no outsiders as we nurture one another accepting all forms of diversity, whilst fostering a love of learning.  Our Christian values, as expressed in the parable of the Good Samaritan, enable us to flourish together as we love selflessly, have eternal hope and walk in faith. 

School Motto

‘Safe in your hands Lord, we love, laugh, learn’

This runs alongside and intertwined with our Curriculum Vision as follows. The documents below details how we live our Christian Vision through all our work at St Oswald's.

How does our Christian vision reflect our school context?

St Oswald's CE Primary School sits in the village of Mollington, a rural setting surrounded by farmland on the outskirts of Chester. We pull from a very wide community of 5 villages as well as accepting lots of children from out of catchment. Therefore we do not have a close community to work with directly. As such 'Love Your Neighbour' is important to us as it reindorces our need to develop and build our strong school community. 

In addition to this St Oswald's has a cohort of predominantly white british families. This is due to our location but there are currently no other religions or languages represented in school. A key part of our work at St Oswald's is to teach about diversity. Children need to know that our school is not representative of the modern Britain that we are preparing for. Jesus message in the Bible was clear that the second most important commandment was to 'Love Your Neighbour'. At St Oswald's we reflect on who our neighbour is to ensure that we treat all equally and respect and value the uniqueness of all God's children.  

We are proud to be a 'No Outsiders' school!
