Educating in Faith, Hope and Love. We may be small but we are mighty.




A warm welcome to our  website for St Joseph's Catholic Primary School!


We hope that this site will act as a guide to the way we, at St Joseph's Catholic School, strive to achieve

the aims set out in our Mission Statement.

Our Mission Statement provides an overall framework for both general and more specific aims and is the foundation from which all aspects of our school community develop. Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do.


Please take some time to look around and see the many opportunities we offer to the children in our care.

Don't forget to check back soon for more exciting updates.

School Uniform:

As the Summer Term begins, please may I remind you that  children may be in summer or winter uniform, but not a mixture of both. Last year, we had some girls in dresses with checked skirts and white tops, these are not school uniform. Please also remember that we expect the children to be wearing black school shoes, not sandals or trainers, and definitely no leggings! Thank you.



  New Head Teacher Challenges!  

 Practise your times tables and be ready for the GRAND TIMES TABLES TRY-OUT!

Class trials will be taking place over the next 2 weeks. Several children will then be chosen from each class (Years 2-6) to take part in the times table challenge on Monday 23rd May. The winners will earn a place on the Head teacher's challenge wall. So get practising!

 Learn your spellings for the summer term SPELLING BEE. 


See the star challenge on the Pupils page.


New software: 

The school has purchased some new software for the children to use both at home and at school. There are lots of fun activities to keep them busy and improve their computing, maths and reading skills. The children have been given a login for each website. If you have any problems logging in, contact your child's teacher or another member of staff (Mr Muschamp, Mrs Foan or Mr Pohl are the experts!)

Why choose St Joseph’s Catholic School for your children?

Our school is small and friendly, we have a shared belief that each child is unique and a gift from God. Our small numbers mean that we know each child as an individual. The children know each other well; they themselves describe St Joseph’s as a family. As in all families, we have our ups and down, our quarrels and arguments, but we follow Jesus’ message of love and forgiveness. We love our school, many visitors comment on the good behaviour of our pupils and the ethos of respect combined with fun and friendship.
