Everyone at St. Joseph’s would like to welcome you to our happy and caring school.
Our website gives you lots of information about our school and we hope you will enjoy looking around and finding out more about the many interesting and exciting things that happen here – whether you are a pupil, parent, parishioner, prospective parent, governor, staff member or even a past pupil from long ago!
Our Catholic faith is at the heart of our school and is evident as soon as you step though our doors in what you will see, hear and feel inside St Joseph’s. Our entire curriculum and school culture is based on the teachings of Christ and children are taught to be kind, respectful, forgiving and caring young people.
Our mission statement of ‘Faith, Hope, Love’ ensures that all children are supported in order to fulfill their true potential, both academically and spiritually. By developing a love of learning, when the children move onto the next phase of their education, they have the skills and confidence to follow and achieve their aspirations.
All of our children are unique individuals and have different needs. Our carefully crafted curriculum ensures that all children are challenged and succeed in all areas of learning, in an environment that is safe, caring and engaging.
At St Joseph’s we work in partnership with you, the parents. As the first educators of your children, your support and involvement in your child’s learning is essential. We have an ‘open door’ policy because we want you to continue to be actively involved in your child’s learning at school.
We look forward to getting to know both you and your child and welcome you to our school family.
