St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Love, learn and live in Christ!

Welcome to our school website! We do hope you will have a good look round the different sections to see what we get up to! Here are some of the things our parents/carers said in our latest survey - Sept 2019: 100% said their child is safe and happy in school; staff value parents/carers; information is always cascaded well; welcoming, nurturing, family environment; school is fun; staff are fab; we are lucky with the support school gives; great, positive leader; the Catholic life; my child is challenged to reach their full potential; the quality of input is excellent = academic progress and development as a well rounded individual; pastoral care; educational visits; teach with passion.....and lots more! We hope your journey through our website will help you see what they mean!

Reception News

We have had a wonderful start to Reception! All the class have been exploring their new classroom and making new friends. We have had lots of fun. Our topic is ' All About Me!' so we will be learning about all the special things about ourselves!

Please remember to check your child's book bag daily for: letters/information sheets/phonic books/new sounds etc

Thank you

We are learning to become Independent!

SKILLS that become life habits

  • How to hold and use a knife and fork
  • How to dress and undress…..and with pace!
  • How to carry out a simple instruction – then 2 step – then multiple step
  • How to be aware of others – spatial awareness
  • How to be increasingly responsible for their things eg: ask them if they have any letters from school and ask them to pass them to you from their bag / hand something into their teacher
  • How to be responsible for their actions and that there are always consequences
  • How to take turns – play games
  • Always use their manners- Please and thank you

We want our children to THINK independently and ACT independently as a result of GOOD CHOICES.

We had so much fun at our Rainbow Challenge! Thank you for all your fundraising!
