Headteacher's Welcome

Mrs Ashley, our Headteacher.

On behalf of the Governors, staff and the wider members of the St. Joseph's community, l am pleased to welcome you to our happy, friendly and successful school.

Inspired by the life and messages of Jesus and believing that every child is made in the image and likeness of God, St. Joseph's Catholic Primary School is just like a family, where everyone is welcomed; where everyone is loved, respected and cared for; where everyone is helped and encouraged to achieve their very best and where Christ is at the heart of everything we do.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum enriched with visitors, visits, events and activities to inspire in each child a joy for learning.

Our Catholic ethos focuses our expectations; our children are honest and respectful, care for others and work hard to develop skills which will allow them to fulfil their human potential and achieve success now and in the future.

We believe in an active working partnership between home, school and parish and will provide you with regular information, both formally and informally, about all aspects of school life and your child's progress at St Joseph's.

We are delighted to welcome you and your child to our school as prospective members of a community, where the Gospel values of the Catholic faith underpin our efforts to provide a quality education for all.

We look forward to working with you as a family, welcoming and valuing your contribution to the education of your child as well as offering you the very best of our professional skills and expertise.

We are very proud of the success of our children and we want each one of them to excel within our very caring community, where expectations are high. We strive to develop the best possible learning environment for the children entrusted in our care.

We are proud of our school with its happy and caring atmosphere with Christ at the centre, and a tradition of hard work, academic achievement, sporting success and community involvement. A school where our strong faith underpins all that we do.

Mrs Michelle Ashley
