Welcome from the Headteacher
Our school is a very special place, successful and full of creative energy. Our children are happy and thriving; they have fun and have a passion for learning. They spend their days within a community of love which ensures that their spiritual and learning journeys are thoughtfully planned with their best interests in mind.
In November 2017, Ofsted confirmed our wonderful school as outstanding in all areas. Please take time to view the report,which is given below for you to read.
St. Joseph's was also graded as outstanding in all areas of Catholic Life and Religious Education by the Diocesan inspectors during their last visit in 2018. We are delighted with this commendation of the work we do as a Catholic school.
The staff are fully committed to providing children with a very broad learning experience, packed with new challenges and long-lasting memories. We journey with the children and together flourish in a Catholic community of witness of Christ to our world. Our intention is that their desire to learn carries on throughout the children's lives, continually enriching them and helping them to make the right decisions which will make them successful and happy adults.
Our Mission Statement, given below, guides us in our day to day work. It encapsulates the values and the ethos of the school. You will also gain a good feel for the principles which guide our work by browsing through our website.
Please come and spend some time at the school. This will help you understand why our school is such a unique place. I regularly lead tours of the school and look forward to meeting you.
