As a Church of England School we embrace the Diocesan vision and want to ensure our children enjoy life in all its fullness providing experiences rooted in faith, love and hope. Our vision of ‘Learning and Growing Together’ reminds us that we nurture the tiny seeds which grow into the mighty tree as Jesus describes in the Kingdom of Heaven as individuals and the community so that we can provide for others (Parable of the Mustard Seed- Matthew 13)
I am extremely proud to lead a team that is so hard working and committed to all the children at St Oswald’s; nurturing every child to reach their full potential within a calm caring environment. It is my belief that we should provide a learning environment in which parents, staff, Governors and the Friends of St Oswald’s work in partnership to improve outcomes for all our children. Together we can support our children to develop skills to become independent lifelong learners and responsible citizens, who are respectful, resilient and compassionate.
Above all we strive to encourage initiative within a happy, healthy and safe environment where all achievement is valued and celebrated. Our reward systems enable the children to achieve their own personal best whilst recognising good behaviour, manners and being a good citizen. Further to this we deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that enables children to explore, ask questions and be innovative. It is one which promotes challenge and enables children to make a positive contribution towards their own learning experience.
