Quotations from Parents
"St Josephs is a prime example of a school that is successfully well led by the Headteacher. Her methods are fully backed up by her staff which results in a well-balanced, happy learning environment for its pupils."
"My three children all love coming to school at St Josephs’. They enjoy school life and the enriching activities available to them. The pastoral care is excellent and the progress they make each term is notable. They all have a strong sense of belonging and know right from wrong. We feel blessed to have our children in such a wonderful school. "
"As the parents of a disabled child in reception, we were naturally concerned about the transition into primary school. The care and attention he has received at St Joseph's has been nothing short of exceptional. The positive, inclusive 'can do' attitude of the teachers and teaching assistants is outstanding. There is something very special about the community environment at St Josephs."
"Both my children are fortunate enough to be part of this stimulating and caring school. The staff go over and beyond their day-to-day jobs to create exciting and challenging activities to get the most from their children, every day. More importantly, each teacher I’ve met is really attentive to each individual child and very aware of their strengths/weaknesses. It’s absolutely wonderful."
"We talk about moving house sometimes and the children’s reaction is always refusal as they don’t want to leave their school. It’s a great school. Thank you."
"The variety of activities such as Grandparents’ Week, Take One Picture, Shakespeare Recital, and the Poetry Competition are such highlights for the children. The teachers are all wonderful and dedicated and really get to know their children not just academically but they nurture their little personalities and encourage their individual talents. "
"As a parent and a teacher, I recognise the value of knowing your child is well looked after and happy at school. St Joseph’s provides a safe, nurturing and appropriately challenging learning environment in which my child feels supported and encouraged. Therefore, he is motivated to learn and make progress. He enjoys the rewards the school offers him for effort, good work and behaviour in the form of house points, stickers, recognition from teaching staff. Thank you."
