Aspire and achieve through opportunity and experience.


Our Staff





As headteacher it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website.

We pride ourselves on our excellent relationships with children, staff, parents, carers and governors. St Oswald’s is a thriving Catholic community, where everyone is valued and is given the best opportunity to achieve fully. Whilst academic achievement is very important, it must be balanced with the children’s social, moral and spiritual formation.

It is important to me that you, as parents and carers, have a voice and feel that school is approachable and welcoming and that any concerns you may have can be shared, so please never hesitate to get in touch.

Mrs T Musgrove


Our Values

The staff and governors of St Oswald’s value every individual associated with our school by living out Gospel values. We are mutually supportive and respectful of each other which engenders a calm, safe and welcoming environment. For our children, we strive to develop self-esteem and a positive self-image which leads to pride in their achievements and an ability to reach their full potential, physically, academically, mentally and spiritually. We believe that Christian values should pervade every part of the curriculum and the way it is delivered. We foster a welcoming atmosphere and support parents in the nurture and development of their child’s learning and wellbeing. Staff are valued and encouraged to develop and enrich their own lives. As a school we are all part of one larger family within the Bishop Wilkinson Trust: children and families; staff and governors; our parish; our feeder school – Cardinal Hume Catholic School and the wider community we serve.


We send out letters and newsletters on a regular basis to keep parents up to date with school decisions and progress.

At St Oswald's Catholic Primary School, we keep our parents, carers and families informed about upcoming events and celebrations of our children's successes. We regularly publish a newsletter, which is sent out electronically to all of our parents and is made available on this page. We also use Social media to share the very latest events, learning and religious celebrations that take place within our school.

Sculpture in Year 2

Zoe Allen, a sculptor from the Laing Art Gallery, led us in an afternoon of sculpting! We learned some more about the work of Barbara Hepworth and then had a lot of fun designing and making our own clay sculptures. We were all very proud of our final works of art!
