Visions and Values

Our visions and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.


School Mission Statement


Learning, Living, Loving together in Christ.


At Our Lady & St Rose of Lima School we hold our Catholic ethos central to everything we do.

Our Mission statement: ‘Learning, Living, Loving together in Christ’ upholds our commitment to the Catholic life of the school.



British Values


British Values according to Ofsted are:

  • democracy
  • the rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

 Until now schools have been required to ‘respect’ these values, but as a result of changes brought in earlier in the year all schools must now have a clear strategy for embedding these values and show how their work with pupils has been effective in doing so.


In a letter to the Education Select Committee in March, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Schools Lord Nash explained the changes were designed to


“tighten up the standards on pupil welfare to improve safeguarding, and the standards on spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils to strengthen the barriers to extremism”.

Catholic Virtues


As well as our School Mission Statement and teaching British Values, we also teach and share the Catholic Virtues. These run throughout all lessons and activities in school and underpin everything we do.

Healthy & Happy Children


Like any school, we want the very best for the children we work with: we want them to have healthy bodies and minds! We encourage all children to eat a healthy diet, we have an active curriculum to encourage exercise and we look out for the mental health of our children too. 



Here at St Rose, we are working our way through the different levels of awards to become a Rights Respecting School.

The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK. Unicef works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive.
