We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all to share this commitment. All who work in our school have a responsibility to make sure that everyone is safe.
As a Catholic School, Christ is at the centre of all we do. We seek to build an environment in which Christian values and virtues guide all the children, giving a secure foundation to their future lives. All staff are committed to providing a warm, caring environment in which pupils of all abilities can be safe, happy and achieve their full potential, academically, emotionally, socially and spiritually.
St Joseph’s is proud of its educational provision and outcomes. We strive to provide a curriculum where challenge and support is provided regardless of their need or ability. Through recognising, valuing and encouraging the varied talents of each individual as made in the image and likeness of God, we help children to see themselves as achievers, raising their self-esteem and confidence.
Working with parents is key and we continually look at ways to further develop our partnership with them. We have a growing ‘Parent Partnership’ group who are the voice of our parents. We listen and provide support and activities in response to parental need, as well as working with them to review policies and procedures.
The Friends of St Joseph’s organise fundraising and social activities. Their money helps to further enhance provision for all children. Parents are kept up to date via regular newsletters, texts and Tweets. We enjoy celebrating our successes but are also prepared to address areas for development.
Regular surveys are sent out, we always welcome feedback. In this way we work successfully together for the educational benefit of our children.
