The success and happiness of the children are our priority and recognising that all children are individuals, together we ensure that every child achieves their potential within a happy, healthy, safe, and secure environment. 

Excellent relationships are at the heart of our success at St Oswald’s, both within the school – between children, staff, governors, and parents – and also in St Oswald’s Parish and the wider community.  It is through these strong links between home and school that we are able to establish and maintain the very highest of standards: we are very proud of our school and are all committed to achieving these high standards every day. Children are happy, confident learners with good manners, respect, and an appreciation of their community and the wider world.
