With the Love of God we Learn, Grow and Achieve


Our vision at St Joseph’s is to develop and support children in becoming life-long learners, by providing a caring and stimulating environment.

Our children are given the opportunity to learn and grow in the knowledge and love of God.

Through the Christian Ethos, children are equipped with the skills to recognise, value and celebrate differences.

High expectations of the school community ensure children flourish, enabling them to reach their full potential, becoming independent, confident happy learners and curious about the world in which they live.

Health and Wellbeing

Year 4 on the climbing wall.

At Saint Joseph's we not only realise that English and Maths are important, but that our children being engaged, healthy and confident is important too. On Friday afternoons, everyone will take part in Health and Wellbeing afternoons, experiencing activities that encourage them to take risks, works as a team and enjoy the great outdoors. Our exciting activities include a climbing wall, yoga, visits to Poolsbrook Park and Pleasley Vale, gardening and understanding personal fitness. Every child will experience each of these activities between now and the summer. 



Our Patron Saint

Our Patron Saint is St. Joseph. He was married to Mary, who was the mother of Jesus. We do not know very much about St. Joseph but what we do know shows that he was a good man. He was a carpenter, so he is known as St. Joseph the Worker. He is the patron saint of workers, and has two feast days. On the 19th March we celebrate Joseph the husband of Mary and on May 1st we celebrate Joseph the Worker. Joseph was engaged to Mary. After the angel told Mary that her baby would be the son of God, Joseph didn’t know what to do. An angel appeared to him in a dream and told him not to worry. His job was to marry Mary and to protect the baby. He was a caring man, so he was happy to do this job. Joseph and Mary made the long trip to Bethlehem and Jesus was born in a stable there. Joseph then brought Jesus up along with Mary.
