Welcome to the St Joseph's Catholic Primary School website!

At St Joseph's we aim to provide our children with the best possible education and to develop the whole child during their time with us.

Whether you are a parent interested in our school as a potential place for your own son or daughter to come to, or simply have a passing or curious interest, you are very welcome, as indeed you will be if any interested parent wishes to visit our school. St. Joseph's is a Catholic School with a most distinctive mission, vision and purpose.

Our greatest assets are the children themselves who are a delight to be with. Happiness and love are prevalent in this school. Children are warm and friendly and we have no major behavioural issues or concerns. It is a place where children are happy, and want to come to, and a place where adults also find immense joy and job satisfaction.

We consider this school to a genuine partnership with several groups all working for the good of the children. We value these groups and the close interests and relationships they share. The main Partnership Groups are:

From a child's perspective, it is the Home/School /Parish partnership which is the most readily recognized, and which has the most impact on each child's development.

As a Catholic school we have the highest of expectations and drive ourselves hard to be an example of Catholic education at its very best. The school seeks to provide for every child in many ways and does so expecting each and every child to achieve his or her own individual best. Every child, no matter what their ability, will have success celebrated and the progress they make recognised.

The school will actively seek to ensure that individual needs are met and that every child has provision for their academic growth, spiritual growth, physical growth and social growth and development.

In providing for our children, we will have high, but realistic, expectations upon them in all that they do.
