Welcome to St Oswald’s

We are looking forward to welcoming everybody back to school on Tuesday 8th September. In the meantime, we are busy making sure that school looks and feels as close as possible to the way it was before lockdown whilst ensuring all of the necessary safety measures are in place. The FAQ sheet that was sent home at the end of last term can be found on this website under the Coronavirus Information tab, along with a copy of our Risk Assessment.

As a reminder, children will need to bring with them a water bottle, their PE kit (which will remain in school and only go home for washing, as required) and book bag, and KS2 pupils will need to return their chromebooks. If your child is having a packed lunch he/she will also need to bring a lunchbox. In addition, pupils in Y5 and Y6 can bring a pencil case to school. All pens, pencils and other stationery items will be provided by school. It is essential that all items brought into school are clearly named. 

FOSOSF have very kindly offered to donate a book bag to each of our new Reception pupils, and these will be given to parents when they return their completed forms before our new starters join us. 

Enjoy the remainder of the summer holidays and we can’t wait to see you all again in September! 

Welcome to St Oswald’s Church of England Primary School’s Website. We are very proud of our happy, diverse and inclusive school, our strong values and our achievements, and we hope that the website will give you a flavour of these. It should also provide you with a lot of useful practical information about the school.

Our six core values are:

  • Respect
  • Compassion
  • Trust
  • Friendship
  • Justice
  • Service

These reflect our Christian foundation as a Church of England School and provide the basis for everything we do and aim to achieve at St Oswald’s. Most importantly, they are at the heart of all the relationships that exist between the members of our school community – children, parents, staff, governors and our local community.

Our school aims are summarised in our motto:

Learning for all, caring for each other, preparing for the future.’

Here are some quotes from our most recent SIAMS Report, after the school was inspected and graded ‘Outstanding’ in June 2017:

 “Personal and academic achievement sit side by side at St Oswald’s”

“St Oswald’s vision and values are woven throughout the whole curriculum.”

Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary with sincere and respectful relationships the norm.”

St Oswald’s is a school which ‘welcomes everybody.'”

We believe that St Oswald’s is a special place. To find out more, please read the full report below, browse this website, or better still come and visit us. We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
