Parental Involvement at St. Oswald’s School
We are very aware of the importance of parental involvement here at St Oswald’s and we love inviting parents and carers into school to share our learning. Last year we offered parents some fantastic opportunities to get involved in school life including; singing on a Christmas CD, extra-curricular activities such as parent/child guitar group, morning reading club, grandparent’s afternoon, arts and crafts workshops, games afternoons, parents vs children gameshows and much more!
This year we have exciting plans to continue our hard work with parental involvement and already parents have been busy celebrating creative week through Liverpool based singing and arts and crafts workshops with us. Reading club, after school clubs and activities, coffee mornings, fundraising events, school productions and an invitation to every parent in school from nursery to y6 to join their child in class to share their learning are just some of the great experiences and opportunities we offer parent and carers at St. Oswald’s Catholic Primary School.
The PTFA also contribute massively in arranging events such as school discos, Christmas fairs and shopping trips and other great events for children and parents. We would love even more parents/carers/grandparents to get involved in school life, so look out for upcoming events and come and share in our fantastic school life!
You can contact the School Nurse, Caroline Robinson, on 0151 296 7920.

Parental Involvement in KS2
Our PTFA play an active part in KS2, organising special events for our children to raise funds for school and also through their regular meetings. All parents are welcome to attend these meetings and PTFA members feed back to school staff following each meeting.
Each year group organises a parental involvement session to enable parents to gain an insight into various areas of our curriculum. Past events have included a DT session making marble runs, and Art/DT session creating patchwork quilts and a PE session to get us moving!
Mrs McBrien organises Maths drop in sessions to allow parents to dispel any Maths fear! These sessions are designed to help parents support children with Maths at home and give tips on how to make more Maths fun for you and your child.
