Our School Values & Ethos

Our vision statement is ‘Inspiring a love of learning’ this is supported by our Golden Rules. Together we:

  • respect others – care, share & listen
  • respect ourselves – believing in ourselves
  • succeed – do our best
  • are honest – showing others they can trust us
  • are responsible – thinking about our actions

These Golden Rules also form the basis of our Oldbury School prayer. Our vision statement and Golden Rules were devised in conjunction with staff, governors, parents and children.
