Welcome to St Joseph's Catholic Primary School
St Joseph's Catholic Primary School an inclusive school with a developmental curriculum that celebrates the social and cultural diversity of our school, reflecting our local population: a diversity that we both welcome and celebrate, and which has shaped the ethos of our school. A positive Christian ethos, together with our drive for outstanding achievement, are at the heart of our school. Our children learn and grow academically and socially and build resilience so that they are ready for the next stage of their education. At St Joseph’s we are passionate about ensuring that each and every child grows with self-confidence, developing a growth mind set and achieving their full potential across the spectrum of experiences that are on offer.
Welcome from the Headteacher
I am delighted to have been appointed the new Headteacher of St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School. I feel extremely honoured and privileged to have been chosen to continue to build upon the success the school has had over the last few years. I am looking forward to getting to know all of our pupils, staff, and parents and carers over the coming weeks. In my experience, a successful and happy school depends on all of us working together to support the children, and each other, in every possible way. I will be working with the staff on a vision where children are provided with a happy, safe and stimulating environment, where they can access a broad, creative and engaging curriculum. Alongside this, I hope to build positive relationships with you and the local community, creating opportunities for the children to learn both inside and outside of the classroom, enabling them to encounter the best learning experiences possible. This, in turn, will ensure that when children leave St Joseph’s, they are confident learners, with a strong belief in themselves, whilst also being responsible members of society, ready for their secondary school education and beyond. Children should be excited to come to a happy, caring, spiritual and hardworking school. It is also important that we help and support our children to believe in themselves and to recognise their true potential and talents. As a Catholic community, it is important to celebrate the successes of our children in all areas of school life. We can do this by showing them that we believe in them, respect them and are proud of them each and every day. As parents and carers, you make an important contribution to your children’s achievements, and I’m excited to build on the relationship between you and the school to support your children and our school community.Read More
