At St Joseph's Catholic Primary School we are incredibly proud of the way children engage in Gospel Values and their own spiritual development. 10% of our teaching time is directly spent on teaching RE for which we use the 'Come and See' curriculum. http://www.comeandseere.co.uk/

To celebrate the beginning of our new school year you are invited to attend a Welcome Mass on Thursday 28th September at 9am. Our children always play an active part during Mass and like to share this with their families. Following the Mass you are welcome to join us for refreshments.
On Sunday 1st October at 11.30am we will be celebrating Harvest at St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Elm Grove. The Parish has invited our children to take part by singing and reading in this Mass. If you would like your child to take part in this service please return the slip below by Friday 22nd September. Children will need to be in full school uniform and arrive at the church in good time.
Harvest is a time that we are thankful for the food that we have, but it is also a time when we remember those who are less fortunate. We would be delighted to received donations of tins and dried food into school which we will take to the church.
We invite all our grandparents into school on Tuesday 3rd October. There will be a Key Stage 2 assembly presented by the children at 9am and afterwards grandparents can join the children for some classroom activities. Key Stage 1 children would like their grandparents to come and chat and play with them in their classrooms.
Daily Christian Meditation
We have a daily Act of Worship and each class holds Christian Meditation after lunch for five minutes. Children have talked enthusiastically about how this helps them settle for the afternoon's work and how they enjoy the opportunity to engage with God for just a short part of their day.
Our class collective worship each week is based on
"The Wednesday Word."
This publication should come home with your child every Wednesday. It details Sunday's Gospel, connecting home, school and parish.
The Wednesday Word is now available on line. Click here for access.
