St Oswald’s C of E Primary School
The Award for Headteacher of the Year in a Primary School
Emma started her career at St Oswald’s as a newly qualified teacher and was appointed
Headteacher in 2008. The school is in an area facing many challenges with a higher than average
number of children receiving social care but, as a result of the nurturing environment she creates,
aspirations and achievements are high. Her ethos can be summed up in her motto that underpins
everything she does “the children come first”. Emma also has governance of 2 Children’s Centres; here she continues her commitment to local families and others in the extended community providing outstanding support and care.
