Safeguarding at St Joseph’sSeptember 1st 2016
At Joseph’s we recognise the importance of all our children feeling safe as we recognise this as a condition of being ready to learn.
Safeguarding at School
Safeguarding at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School is given top priority. All adults in our school
have a responsibility for Safeguarding. We believe that it is important to make children aware of behaviour towards them that is not acceptable, and our PSHE, Rainbow curriculum supports children in recognising when their personal rights are being compromised. The school also signposts access to support for pupils, by displaying Childline posters with helpline numbers....
Cool MilkAugust 25th 2016

Walk to School!
We regularly hold ‘walk to school’ weeks and they are always a great success. We are really impressed with the effort families take to walk or cycle to school during those weeks and sometimes the children enjoy it so much that they continue to do it permanently. The children love our ‘walking bus’ and we sometimes count over 80 children using this service. We must say a big thank you to the parents/grandparents/child-minders who help us and help to keep the children safe.
We are also very grateful to The Somerford Beefeater who have become our ...

Procedure for Emergency School ClosuresMarch 1st 2015
Procedure for Emergency School Closures:
Any decision to close St Joseph’s Catholic School is not made lightly and we realise that such a decision can have quite an impact on our families. However we have to ensure that all our children and staff are able to arrive at school safely. In times of very bad weather we consult governors and parents who live near to the school as to the conditions of the surrounding roads as these can be very different to the roads elsewhere in the area due to gritting - or lack of!
Once a decision is made we email and text parents on ParentMail and inform ...
