Welcome back to all our children and families and a special welcome to the new children and staff who have joined us! The parents of our Year 6 leavers said...We are so glad we picked the right school...An excellent school. I do not hesitate to recommend it to any parent...An excellent foundation to build on....A fantastic approach to learning and life...Brilliant teachers and school who have touched our lives with the love they show our children. I think this academic year is going to be another fantastic one!

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

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 Love, Learn and Live in Christ at St Joseph's!

We will be learning our daily prayers and learning about Jesus' life.
