At St. Oswald's RC Primary School we are required to base our teaching on the National Curriculum for England. It sets out clear, full and statutory entitlement to learning for all pupils. It determines the content of what will be taught, and sets attainment targets for learning. The National Curriculum is delivered through cross- curricular themes across all Key Stages. 

Curriculum Intent


Our vision for St Oswald’s Catholic Primary school is:


To provide the community we serve with the highest quality of education and support for every individual child, in every year group.

To provide a Catholic, Christian education based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.  The values of the Gospel will underpin all aspects of school life in order to provide an environment in which the dignity of each person, as a child of God is recognised and developed.                                                                  

An education for all pupils that enables them to be creative, inquisitive, compassionate and successful young people.  To provide a curriculum that is rich, exciting, innovative and varied.  To promote excellence across the curriculum; in the arts, in sport, in scientific thinking, in creativity and in culture and we will achieve the highest possible academic standards. 

Our vision is to mould successful learners who enjoy learning, foster a desire to know more, take pride in their achievements and successes, recognise and solve problems, are creative and resourceful, are self- assured and well mannered, take calculated risks, develop a sense of belonging, are open minded and tolerant. 


We see these skills as being invaluable to life long learning and success.


As a school we believe in a Catholic ethos where children of all backgrounds and cultures are welcomed and valued; all children will make the very best progress that they can; leaving us as confident individuals who are ready to take on a role in the wider world.

Promoting British Values at St Oswald's

Equality, SEN and and Disability

All aspects of our curriculum are accessible to all children, irrespective of their ethnic background, gender, disability, religious or linguistic background. We strive hard to meet the needs of those pupils with special educational needs, those with disabilities, those who are more able, those with special gifts and talents and the children who are learning English as an additional language. We provide a rich, challenging curriculum, which stretches all of our children. Staff are aware of children who have exceptional talents and gifts and monitor or track their progress carefully to ensure their academic potential or talent is continually developed. For further details see separate policies.
