Welcome

Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to St Joseph’s Primary School in Broadstairs, a one form entry school of around 210 pupils which became an academy within the Kent Catholic schools partnership in March 2014.  All aspects of school life are underpinned by the Gospel values with respect and value of the individual at the core of our mission statement.

We are housed in a beautiful building founded by The Sisters of Charity in 1906.  This link with the nuns, who travelled from Belgium to deliver education to the disadvantaged and with it a strong message of inclusivity, is mirrored in our school policies and classroom practice.  St Joseph’s is a family school and we are partners in ensuring high standards of teaching and learning for all.

I invite you to look at our last Ofsted from February 2017 and Section 48 Report of October 2016 and celebrate our achievements and successes.  We have a very supportive and pro-active governing body which ensures a strong management team with a clear shared vision of school progression and improvement.

Explore our new web site and learn about the children and staff at St Joseph’s and our friends in the local, national and international communities. If you have time visit the KCSP web site and find out how schools in the academy trust are working collaboratively to offer the best education for our children.

Values and Ethos

We believe in a whole school community working together within a Catholic ethos. St Joseph’s offers high academic standards, underpinned by a central emphasis on RE and worship. We are an inclusive school recognising the needs of the individual. Our aim is for School, Parish and Home to work together as one unit in order for our children to reach their full potential both spiritually and academically. At St Joseph’s we show respect for each other and draw inspiration from the Gospel values; forgiveness, reconciliation, trust and freedom are integral to daily life. We are a communion of people gathered in the embrace of the Catholic Church. The history of salvation is around the group not the individual and so it is the school as a community that lives out the Gospel values in this way
