Welcome to St Joseph’s RC Primary School!
Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you have to make as a parent. We know that when you send your child to us – you are entrusting the most precious person in your life to our care and you want us to provide your child with the very best education that we can. We take this trust and partnership with you seriously. In this website we aim to tell you something about our school and also demonstrate our commitment to provide your child with the very best start in education and life long learning that we can.
We are a Voluntary Aided, Roman Catholic School. We provide a caring Christian environment for all our pupils, parents, staff and visitors. We welcome children of different Christian denominations as well as many children from a wide variety of different faiths and those of no particular faith background. Having such a variety of children from different backgrounds helps us to celebrate the wonderful variety of people in our world and community, as well as learning to respect and love each other.
Central to our commitment is the development of children who are well prepared for the future. At St Joseph’s, we are concerned about the development and growth of the whole child and our curriculum is geared up to encourage and support confident and successful young people. We believe that success means good academic achievement as well as the development of each child’s unique gifts and talents.
According to Ofsted, we promote pupils’ personal development well. We also place great importance on caring for children and ensuring they enjoy learning in a safe environment. Pupils are well behaved. All our staff have high expectations of pupils and ensure everyone respects each other.
We are committed to developing a valued partnership between home and school, and the wider community, so that together we can provide a rich and stimulating education.
We have a dedicated and involved Governing Body that works hard and effectively with school. We strive constantly to improve and develop every aspect of the school.
We hope the information on the website gives you an insight into our school and what you can expect in becoming part of St Joseph’s family.
We encourage you to visit the school and I am always available to meet with you to answer questions or to discuss any concerns you may have.
