School Christmas Fayre

On Friday 15th December at 2pm the doors will open for our Christmas Fayre.

If anybody has any old toys or books in good condition or any toiletries they no longer require please can we ask these be donated for the fayre.

On the morning of the 15th there will be a ‘Great St Oswald’s bake off competition in our Praise and Celebration worship, where we ask families to bake a cake and enter the competition.  The cakes will then be sold on the afternoon at the school fayre so get baking!

On the day, you can pick your child up by coming through the school entrance and signing in.  The children must then be signed out from their classroom and at this point they will become your responsibility.  There will be an admission fee of 50p per adult and can we reiterate that all adults enter school through the front entrance.

If you are unable to attend the fayre on Friday 15th your child’s class teacher will take them around the fayre where they will still be given the opportunity to spend their money.

Please can you try as far as possible to bring plenty of change?

We look forward to seeing you on Friday 15th December!

Praise and Celebration Worship will take place at 2:30pm this Friday (8.12.17) instead of 9:10am due to whole school photographs during the morning.  Coffee morning will NOT go ahead now till after Christmas due to the renovation of the Mary Thomas Room.


Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Let it snow…Let it snow…Let it snow!!

Let it snow…let it snow…let it snow! If the weather remains snowy tomorrow can we ask that your child brings a hat and gloves and also an additional pair of trousers and socks (these don’t have to be in line with school uniform) so we can allow the children to play in the snow.

Also wellies are a good idea and children can change into slippers or indoor shoes once they arrive! This is a great chance to let our kids be kids!


Children in Need – 17.11.17


Just a reminder that tomorrow is Children in Need day at St Oswald’s.  We ask that all children either wear spots or Pyjamas tomorrow and make a £1 donation.  All donations will be going to Children in Need.

We will also be having a copper run around school which all pupils can contribute to.  It’s really easy…just bring in any loose change and we’ll see how far we can make our copper grow around the school.

We would also like our worshipping community to get involved too so please mam’s, dad’s, grannies, granddad’s and the rest of our friends please wear your Pyjama’s for tomorrow’s worship and this will be followed by a Children in Need coffee morning for any budding bakers out there!

Hope to see you all tomorrow!
