Welcome to St Oswald’s CE VA Primary School!    I feel extremely privileged to be Executive Headteacher of such a vibrant, dynamic church school who has the children’s best interests at the heart of everything we do through the Christian values of wisdom, growth, trust, strength, peace and friendship.

We work as a team with parents, governors and the local community to ensure our children have the best educational experience we can offer at St Oswald’s and that our children leave us ‘secondary ready’ and equipped with the skills to make them successful as life-long learners and ready for life in Modern Day Britain.

We are passionate about encouraging our children to be the best they can be and offer them, through a varied and exciting curriculum, a wide range of experiences and opportunities to widen their horizons and realise that it is not impossible but ‘I’m Possible’.

We embrace the fact that our children have a range of different beliefs and we discuss these with the children encouraging them to have the strength to stand up for their beliefs and reflect upon these in Prayer Space areas around the school.

We believe that connecting with all stakeholders and members of the local, national and international community is important to the development of the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of our children.

Our aim as a school is to ensure our children ASPIRE to be the best they can be, BELIEVE in what they know to be right and CONNECT with people from all over the world so children leave us with the academic, social and emotional skills for them to achieve all they want within their later life!
