Headteacher’s Welcome

A welcome message from our headteacher.

Headteacher’s Welcome

Our school mission statement at St Joseph’s is:

Work hard, love tenderly, walk humbly: trusting in God.

We live our mission statement daily and we instil three important principles in all we do:

  • Be respectful;
  • Be responsible;
  • Be ready to learn.

This makes our school a fantastic place to learn, achieve and thrive.

St Joseph’s welcomes 3 – 11 year old children:

  • We have a planned admission number of 30 places in each age group from our Nursery then Reception (start of statutory school age) to Year 6 (final primary year before transfer to secondary education);
  • We have 1 class in each age group which enables our children to benefit from a close-knit school family ethos. At St Joseph’s, every child is known;
  • We have breakfast club childcare from 7.30am – 8.45am;
  • We have after school provision which runs until 5.30pm;
  • We provide a range of additional after school clubs which change as we progress through the academic year.

Joining our school

Starting school in our Nursery or Reception for the first time is a milestone in a child’s life. We make sure our induction process is both gentle and extensive.  This makes sure you, and your child, will feel ready, and excited, to join us.

All about us

We are proud of the rich heritage of our school building and the history of education it has provided for many pupils.  As a catholic school, we warmly welcome children of the catholic faith as well as those following other faith traditions.  Part of the Bishop Wilkinson Catholic Education Trust, we are partnership of schools who challenge and support each other to set the highest expectations for our staff and our pupils.  We relish this approach.

We welcome all children – no matter what their individual needs – and strive to include them with additional support in all areas of the curriculum.  We aim for every child to make progress whatever their starting point or background. If you would like further information, please contact our school office.
