Welcome

At St Joseph’s each and every child is valued, nurtured, loved and at the centre of everything we do. We teach through our own actions and words the true values of the Gospel and Christ’s teaching to love one another.

As a school we believe that we are all part of one larger family community with each other; child and family, our parish community, our feeder school Cardinal Hume Catholic School and the wider community to which we serve. We believe that in working together as one that we can truly ensure that we can fully support your child academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. In doing so we help your child to meet their full potential.

Our Values

By using Christ as our guide, we are encouraged to love one another, to value people for who they are, not what they do, to treat each other with respect and tolerance so that our understanding of the world may be enriched. We have high expectations for all children and aim to provide every child with a strong foundation so that they leave our school equipped with the knowledge and skills that they will need for the next stage of their learning journey, and beyond. Along with ensuring confidence and proficiency in academic subjects, we provide opportunities for children to develop positive attitudes to learning and key skills such as creativity, resilience, problem solving and independence, skills that they will be able to apply throughout their lives.

Letters

We send out letters and newsletters on a regular basis to keep parents up to date with school decisions and progress.

At St Joseph's, we keep our parents, carers and families informed about upcoming events and celebrations of our children's successes. We regularly publish a newsletter, which is sent out electronically to all of our parents and is made available on this page. We also use Social media to share the very latest events, learning and religious celebrations that take place within our school.

Year 1 have started to take a closer look at plants this half term. We have been discussing the different parts of a plant and ventured out into our gardens to see if we could spot any leaves, stems, flowers, roots, trunks and buds on the flowering plants and trees. We were amazed at how […]
