A message from the Principals………..

At St. Joseph’s we foster a caring, compassionate and inclusive environment through the strength of the relationships we build with our pupils, parents and wider community. We want the children to actively engage in their learning so that it becomes a life-long journey. We strongly believe that happy children learn and aim to develop their curiosity through a broad and balanced curriculum.

By living and breathing our school values of Belonging, Caring, Teamwork, Respect and Enjoyment; we believe that your children will flourish! At St Joseph’s they will be valued and nurtured as individuals.

On our Section 48 inspection in 2016 the school was judged to be outstanding in every category. The Lead Inspector said…………..

“Pupils evaluate their personal behaviour in light of gospel values and discuss moral decisions of right and wrong in their personal lives”

Everyone in our school community is expected to maintain high expectations of themselves and others so that we can all succeed together socially, academically, creatively and in sport.

If you want your child to be nurtured in a small school in which every child is known by name, you will be welcomed into the St Joseph’s family!
