Welcome to The Oswaldtwistle School

Dear Parents/Carers.

I am both delighted and honored to be appointed to the position of Acting Head Teacher at Oswaldtwistle School and would like to thank the Management Committee for providing me with this valued opportunity.

As some of you are aware I have had the privilege of working at Oswaldtwistle School for 6 years, initially in the capacity of Assistant Head Teacher and more recently as Deputy Head Teacher. As such I would like to reassure you that the school is in very safe hands during this transitory stage as we look towards appointing a new Head Teacher.

Our highly skilled team of staff remain committed to delivering a truly outstanding and personalised provision for your child and continue to work hard to remove ‘barriers’ and promote participation and achievement.  We believe that our students deserve the best life chances and aim to equip each one with the competencies and confidence to achieve their full potential, be happy and become the best they can.

I fully appreciate that you, our parents and carers, play a very important role in the achievements of our young people and understand the need to work closely with you if we are to achieve the best outcomes for them. Although the pandemic currently prevents me from offering ‘drop-in sessions’ I would like to encourage you to contact me any time, by email or phone, if you wish to discuss anything related to your child’s education and I hope that it will only be a short time before we can meet in person.

Kind regards,

Sandra McKenna
Acting Head Teacher
