‘Yet he retained a kindness and humility in everything he did. We, his parents, and his siblings, are heartbroken. We cannot thank staff and pupils at Kidmore End enough for their efforts to assist Oscar on Friday, nor indeed for their belief in Oscar’s abilities right from his first day in Foundation. Praise and thanks should also be given to the ambulance crews, police, air ambulance crew, and the teams at the Royal Berkshire and John Radcliffe Hospitals for their tireless efforts and empathy. They are all amazing people. ‘Oscar will always be remembered for his kindness, cheeky smile, sense of humour, and humble intelligence. We love you, Oscar.’
Staff at Kidmore End CE Primary School have also expressed their ‘devastation’ at the loss of young Oscar. Martina Parsons, the interim executive headteacher of Kidmore End CE Primary, wrote: ‘We are utterly devastated to have lost Oscar. Oscar, a truly lovely spirit, always greeted you with a cheerful good morning and inquired as to how you were. He was unfailingly kind, holding the door open and replying to thanks with a heartfelt ‘You’re welcome’. He adored his family and frequently spoke about them at school. Most recently in school, he enjoyed our day on the river and was having a great time performing and singing in the Leavers’ Play with his friends and classmates. We have an extraordinarily strong school community, and we will do everything we can to help Oscar’s family, our students, and staff as we all come to terms with what has happened.’
