Everyone at St. Joseph’s would like to welcome you to our happy, caring and successful school.
Our website gives you lots of information about our continuously growing 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 this 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 the curriculum, in an environment that is safe, caring, challenging and engaging. The children here at St Josephs are testament to our high standards and expectations. ‘Their manners are impeccable because they know that is what is expected at St Joseph’s.’ Ofsted March 2014. 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. ‘We are very happy with the transition into school and nurturing that is an integral part of school life. Staff are very approachable and supportive. We feel our child is in ‘good hands’ and will flourish.’ (Parent questionnaire October 2016)
