Welcome from Headteacher, Louise Buxton

“A good school provides a rounded education for the whole person. And a good Catholic school, over and above this, should help all its students to become saints….” Pope Benedict XVI, 2010

Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School’s website! We hope that you find this website useful. We want people who visit to come away realising that at the core of our school is our Catholic faith. Catholic schools are part of the parish faith community.  Together with the parish and the family, they are places where we can learn and grow as followers of Jesus.  Jesus is the heart of our community.  In our Catholic school communities, we learn to see and love Jesus in our study, in our prayer, in each other and in everyone.

Jesus feeds and heals us so that we can live as a community: through the words of his Gospel and the sacraments.  The Holy Spirit unites us as a community, and gives each of us gifts to help one another grow as followers of Jesus.  Community is visible whenever the friendship, love and kindness of Jesus are present in our Catholic schools.  The character of our Catholic school speaks of community – so welcome!

“The Christian life is a call to a deeper communion with God and with one another, and this finds particular expression in our schools, which are rightly recognised as being families themselves, where no one is a stranger and where everyone, whatever his or her background or academic ability, is welcomed, treasured, supported and helped to become the person whom God calls them to be.” Bishop Malcolm MacMahon.

Our website is important as it is a window into our community. Please let us know if there is something that would prove useful to have available on our website. For initial enquiries about the school, please contact our school office and you will get through to Mrs Holmes who will be very pleased to help: Contact us
