Football Freestyler Al Johnson in School on Monday

On Monday, professional football freestyler Al Johnson returns to St Oswald’s! He will be showing us his skills and talking about how he’s had to develop a growth mindset through his faith in God to get to where he is today. Each class will then have a football skills workshop with Al, so children can wear their school tracksuits for the day. Children who do not have a school tracksuit can bring trainers that they can change into for their workshop.


Thanks! Mr Richardson.

Isla raises £310 for Alzheimer’s charity

A massive well done to Isla and her family! The family took part in the Memory Walk (7km) along South Shields coast yesterday.
Isla’s granny has Dementia. This was a big deal for the family, as you can imagine, especially Isla – as she is very close to her Granny, so we are extra proud of her for doing this. So far the family have raised £310 from this walk for the Alzheimer’s Society.

A true mark of Christian love !!  Well done Isla and the rest of the family!!

Lifesavers Visitors 26.9.17


We were so privileged on Tuesday 26th September 2017 to have a range of visitors to our Lifesavers sessions and financial understanding money morning. The visitors were The Lord Lieutenant of Tyne and Wear, representatives from Virgin Money and also our partners from Lifesavers.  During the morning, our children looked at saving for something special, budgets, where money comes from and how to make their money grow.  The visitors were very impressed with what they saw and could see how we are making our children ready for life in Modern Day Britain.

If your child would like to join our savings club why not get them to come along on a Tuesday morning at 8:45am and we can get them an account.  They can save from as little as 10p per week but this is a super opportunity for them to watch their money grow and to save for something special.  Also watch out for our parents saving club coming soon.  

For more information contact Mrs Wright at the school office or e-mail

School Development Plan Parents/Carers Meeting – 27.9.17

Dear Parent/Carer,


Re: School Development Priorities 2017


Apologies regarding the change of date for the School Development Plan parents meeting. This is now scheduled for Wednesday 27th September at 5pm and all parents/carers are welcome to attend .  It will last no longer than 45 minutes.


The purpose of the meeting is to make you aware of what the school development priorities are for the coming academic year and hopefully get you involved in the school’s continuous journey of improvement.


There will be a brief overview of what the current climate of the school is and then a chance to hear of our plans for the coming academic year.


This will be followed by a questions and answer session about our plans.

If there are any individual questions you have, which are not linked to the school development priorities, please make an appointment with your child’s class teacher in the first instance.


We look forward to seeing you all then!


Kind Regards


Helen Smith
