Welcome from the Headteacher
Dear Parents and Carers,
It is a privilege for me to be able to welcome you and your family to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School. Our School Mission statement reads;
‘Love Jesus, Love Ourselves, Love Each Other, Love Learning, Love life’
and is built on the Gospel of John 10:10; “I have come that they may have life and live it to the full.” It is also underpinning the 5 Ways of Wellbeing which when followed, helps us to be happy. (Give, Take Notice, Connect, Keep Learning, Be Active)
Christ is at the centre and children are at the heart of all we do here at St Joseph’s.
We believe that every child is unique, should be treated as an individual and have an exciting learning journey with us which both supports and challenges them spiritually, socially and academically.
The school’s committed, caring and professional staff and Governors are united in aiming for excellence and ensuring that every child reaches their full potential in a welcoming environment, in a school ‘full of love’ as part of the family of St Joseph’s. We hope that by choosing our school, your child will feel happy and safe, so that they can then thrive in every way, taking full advantage of the many opportunities that we offer.
We believe it is essential that there are strong partnerships between home and school. Children learn best when these links are in place and so we fully value input from parents. We look forward to building strong relationships with all our families and seeing our children develop and grow.
We recognise that starting school is a huge milestone for you and your child and we endeavour to ensure that this is an exciting and positive time for you and your family.
On behalf of the children, staff, parents and Governors I would like to thank you for taking an interest in our school and hope that you find all the information you need in our prospectus. Please navigate around our website as it will give you a ‘flavour’ of St Joseph’s school life.
If you require any further information then please do not hesitate to contact us.
Miss Michelle Daley
