Our most recent Ofsted Inspection was in November 2016, when we had a short inspection that judged us as continuing to be a good school overall.

Some of the comments from the inspection report included:

  • The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.
  • Leaders and governors have fostered a strong sense of ambition and pride in the whole workforce.
  • The school’s Catholic ethos underpins its work.
  • The positive culture of the school is reflected in the exemplary behaviour of the children.
  • Pupils are well prepared for secondary school, and speak very highly of the support they receive.
  • The curriculum has been redesigned with exciting themes to ensure that pupils are enthused and engaged.

Religious Education Inspection

Our last RE Inspection was in March 2024.

We were very pleased to receive a ‘Good’ judgement, which we feel reflects the provision made for RE in St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School. Our Catholic faith, is at the heart of all that we do.

Some of the comments from the inspection report included:

  • St Joseph’s is a welcoming, caring, nurturing, and inclusive family school which enables all
    pupils to feel safe and secure.
    • Senior leaders and governors are passionate in driving the vision and school mission
    forward in a compassionate manner.
    • Pupils are respectful, kind, courteous, and enthusiastic about learning the Catholic faith.
    • Pupils enjoy learning in religious education and make good links with Catholic social
    • Experiences of school-led prayer and liturgy enable pupils to become closer to God and
    develop their faith more fully.
