Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School; together we are inspired, by the life of St Joseph, to live, love and learn together!
St Joseph’s is a small half-form entry school with four mixed aged classes catering for children aged 4 to 11 years. We are a warm and caring school; visitors, staff, governors and parents often comment on the ‘feel’ of the school and how special the atmosphere is. We pride ourselves on our distinctive Catholic ethos.
Through love and as a community, we share, inspire and motivate our children so they can be the best they can be. As a community we believe passionately in education and as a school we strive to provide a rich and varied curriculum to enrich our children’s lives.
At St Joseph’s we consider ourselves a family and all believe in the importance of home, school and parish community links. As Christian educators we strive to ensure children excel, not just academically but in faith and as individuals. Our children learn to love themselves, love each other, the world around them and to love God.
Children learn best when they are happy and the staff work hard to ensure that they know the children well and that the children develop good behaviour for learning. We have high expectations of our children and this includes their behaviour, attendance, punctuality, uniform and mutual respect for one another.
We hope you will take time to browse our website to find out more about what makes St Joseph’s such a special place to work, learn and play.
