Welcome toSt Oswald'sC of E AcademyChurch, School, Community


There is nothing more important to us than the physical, emotional and spiritual welfare of our pupils.  For this reason, we regard the need for safeguarding all children from all harm as vitally important.  We believe that every child, regardless of age, has at all times and in all situations, a right to feel safe and protected from any situation or practice that results in a child being physically, psychologically or spiritually damaged.


At St Oswald's we use a robust system for recording incidents called CPOMs.  It enables any issues raised to be recorded, at anytime, by any member of staff.  It provides the Governors with comprehensive reports, enabling challenge, which ensures staff are held to account.  


Designated Safeguarding Lead:                    Mrs S Patton (Executive Head Teacher)

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads:      Mrs C Furniss (Head of School)

                                                                      Mrs E Hermiston (Assistant Head/SENDCo)
