Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School. Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important responsibilities you undertake. The purpose of our school website is to help you make that choice and to give you valuable information about our school.
St Joseph’s is part of the National Catholic Education System, and functions in partnership with the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton and Brighton and Hove Local Authority. We strive to promote the values of our Christian faith throughout our daily life; to deepen and kindle the child’s relationship with God through prayer, worship and liturgy. We provide a religious syllabus, which develops our children's knowledge and understanding of our faith.
At St Joseph’s we always put children first. This important characteristic is at the heart of our vision. At St Joseph’s we celebrate richness and diversity. Individuals are valued and encouraged through the understanding that each is uniquely created and loved by God.
We have enthusiastic, inspirational staff who are committed to educating the whole child. Through our creative approach to the curriculum, we take the children on exciting and informative learning journeys; enabling all to flourish and achieve.
We work to develop a sense of community and partnership through prayer, worship and mutual respect for each other and our world.
As parents, you play an important role in the education of your child and I hope that this will be the beginning of a happy and rewarding relationship with your family. Strong, committed partnerships between our school and our parents play a crucial role in our children’s development into young adults. By working together we will give your child the best start in life.
We recognise that you will expect the very best education for your child. At St. Joseph's you will find excellent opportunities for them to achieve their potential. We nurture the individual child’s gifts and talents through sporting, music and computer clubs.
As a smaller than average primary school, we have the unique opportunity to get to know each and every one of our pupils well. Our pastoral care is second to none. As well as a full time learning mentor, we have a welfare assistant who supports our children and families by ensuring that attendance is above average.
Our website offers you an insight into the life of St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School. We would like you to see more and would be delighted to arrange a visit for you and your child.
