Welcome to St Joseph's
All staff at St. Joseph’s seek to do the very best that we can for all of the children in our care. Our work is formed and led by our Mission Statement. The living out of this Mission Statement challenges each and every one of us on a daily basis. Providing the best possible quality care for children with different gifts and talents, continuing to strive for excellence and always looking to be witnesses of Our Lord Jesus Christ may be a tall order but it forms the daily life of our school.
Our School is a community, which celebrates the uniqueness and dignity of each individual. Everyone is made in the likeness of God, and has dignity that does not depend on age, race, gender, wealth or any other attribute.
As a community we depend on each other profoundly, our aim is that through example as well as by direct teaching we will teach our children that the most effective way to learn is by caring for others, nurturing our own talents, always doing our best and always being there to help others. We hope that your children will leave St. Joseph’s not only having achieved their full potential academically but also prepared to take on responsibility for their own learning and ready to use their talents for the good of others.
As you are the first and prime educators of your children we hope to involve you as much as possible in your child’s education. If, at any stage, you have concerns or suggestions do not hesitate to contact either the teaching staff or myself.
Welcome to St. Joseph’s.

Today we welcomed Bishop Ralph to the school. He visited each class to meet all the children and celebrated Lent with a special assembly led by Oaks.
He then spent some time with Maples to answer some of their questions they had emailed him as part of their recent R.E work.
A lovely morning for everyone involved.
NSPCC's Buddy's Big Workout
We had a visit this month from the NSPCC and we all took part in Buddy's Big Workout.
All classes did a sponsored activity and altogether we raised a huge amount of £610.81 for the NSPCC.
On Thursday 8th February we held our first Movie Night. This was a huge success and would like to thank everyone for supporting this evening.
We raised £180 towards school funds. We have used this money to buy an outdoor music system that children can dance and sing along to at lunch times.
This is where you will find information on any events happening in the local community and area.
Unfortunately this event has had to be cancelled
They are hoping to reschedule for another day when the weather is a little better.
