A WORD FROM ST OSWALD'S PRIMARY SCHOOL'S ACTING HEAD - JEMMA RAMSAY

Life at St Oswald’s CE Primary School has been very different and yet not so different since the departure of Mr Griffiths, our headteacher of almost ten years. As a school community we were very sad to bid him farewell. And yet, school life continues to move forward. The pupils and staff of St Oswald’s are in full-swing of a typical ‘busy but brilliant’ summer term: costumes, singing children, creepy-crawlies and sports day equipment can be found around every corner!

It has been a privilege to take on the role of Acting Headteacher for the summer term. I have been a teacher at St Oswald’s since 2006 so it has been wonderful to take a step away from that role and really view the school from a different perspective. The amount of care, love and friendship there is to be found in our school community is overwhelming. Children and adults live out our school values every day and it has reminded me of how thankful I am to be a part of the community here.

Over the term I have enjoyed observing…
Our Early Years pupils grow in confidence (and height!) and seeing how they are ready to make space for the new pupils who will be nervously anticipating starting ‘big school’.
Children in Year 1 and 2 busy with mini-beasts and getting stuck in to their ‘under the sea’ topic.
Key Stage 2 pupils enjoying residential visits and end of year performances.
Our Year 6 children developing into mature, thoughtful young people ready to begin their next adventure beyond our school

The days leading up to the summer holidays at primary school always feel more exciting somehow and it has been an absolute pleasure to enjoy it with children of all age groups this year.
