School Opens on Wednesday 5th September 2018


On behalf of all the children, staff and Governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to the St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School. I hope that you will find it a useful way of finding out about our school and what we believe to be important in the education of children.

We aim to provide a happy, rich and stimulating environment in which all our pupils are nurtured and encouraged to reach their full potential.

Share, care and achieve are key values here at St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary.

In all we do, we seek to promote self confidence and high esteem for everyone in our school and distinguish ourselves by the quality of care we provide to everyone in our school community.

We are extremely proud of our school and we are looking forward to our expansion continuing.
