Reception Class Induction

Welcome to St Oswald’s Catholic Primary School!

This is a dedicated page for the children and their parents due to join our school family in September 2021. We will use this page as a ‘notice board’ to keep you updated on induction and to introduce you to life at St Oswald’s.


Please see the curriculum information document below which reflects the new curriculum your child will be following in Reception.

Reception Induction/Welcome Pack 2021

Information Pack

Below are a number of induction documents that will provide you with a wealth of information in preparation for your child starting school in September 2021. Also below are some documents that we require you to complete and return to the school office before they start school (documents marked *). You can bring these with you when your child attends their taster sessions (Friday 9th July and Friday 16th July) or alternatively you can email completed forms to

You will see that included in the documents below there are instructions on how to download our school app to your mobile device – we strongly recommend that you do this if you can, as the app provides quick links to frequently viewed pages on our website and is also used to send out newsletters, general messages, and reminders. Anyone can have the app, therefore if you are relying on grandparents/family/friends/childminders, etc for childcare, they can also download it and receive these general messages. Any personal messages specifically regarding your child will not be sent via the app; these will be sent directly to you by text message or e-mail. It is therefore essential that we have up-to-date mobile numbers and e-mail addresses.

Some useful Reminders

Please note, Cactus Clothing is currently operating online shopping only for school uniform items. New parents and those who are unsure of sizes or need advice are asked to please make an appointment by calling Cactus on 01925 763718. Thank you.
