At St Joseph’s School we offer a Christian setting that aims to place Christ at the centre of all that we strive to do. All children will feel a sense of worth knowing that they are valued and loved by God. We are an inclusive school; we welcome and celebrate diversity.
We aim to provide the highest standards of education in a welcoming and positive learning environment.
We focus on the growth and development of each person, encouraging each child to play an active part in their own learning and to make every effort to achieve their individual potential.
We want our school to be a place where everyone learns to respect work, play and co-operate with others in a Christian, caring way, whilst fostering close links with our church, parish and the wider community.
“To Inspire, To Learn, To Love with God.”

Teachers are skilled at adapting teaching to meet the diverse range of needs in each class. Daily planning takes into account individual pupils' needs and requirements to ensure that all children experience success and challenge in their learning. Grouping arrangements are flexible with opportunities for both ability and mixed ability groups to maximise learning opportunities for all.
Teaching Assistants (TAs) may be allocated to work with the pupil individually or in a small focus group to support more specific needs. If a child has been identified as having a Special Educational Need, targets will be set according to their area of need. These targets will be shared with parents.
