Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School

'Following in the footsteps of Jesus, we live, love and learn'

I believe that St Joseph’s is a special place with Christ at the centre of everything we do. All staff set high standards and encourage the gifts and talents of every child. We strive for excellence and expect each child to reach their full potential. We want children to develop a passion for life through learning new and exciting things every day, in a fun and happy environment.
Children have a right to be safe and as such we take safeguarding very seriously.
We acknowledge that parents are the children’s first teachers and so we like to work in close partnership with all parents and carers, operating an “Open door” policy

I hope you and your family find St Joseph’s to be a welcoming and friendly environment and one in which your child will feel safe, secure and valued.

Our Mission  

Following in the footsteps of Jesus, we live, love and learn 


Our Aims 

  • Encourage everyone in school to flourish by developing their gifts and talents given by God. 

  • Understand the needs, wishes and aspirations of everyone in school, instilling values which will enable all to develop self-esteem and respect for each other and the wider community. 

  • To provide the opportunity for children to welcome Jesus into their lives through “Come and See” and the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist. 

  • To take all opportunities to promote children’s learning, spirituality, morality, relationships, safety, health and well-being. 

  • Ensure that every child recognises and develops their sensitivity and awareness of other people’s faiths and circumstances in order to become responsible, global citizens.

  • Following the example of Jesus, enable everyone to acknowledge the importance of the role of parents, carers and friends within our school and parish family.
