Being a child should be a carefree, happy time, full of laughter, fun, friendships and the freedom to explore in a nurturing but stimulating environment.
The woodland and fields in our extensive grounds give your child access to regular opportunities for outdoor activities. The outdoors bestows a wonderful extension to the everyday learning environment, whatever the weather! We may be watching from within the bird hide, scrambling over logs, gathering sticks and leaves for literacy projects, visiting our hens, going on a bear hunt, looking for Easter eggs or building dens but in every adventure there is the additional opportunity to be brave, independent, excited, persevering, creative or curious.
We are an experienced, dedicated team and our one form entry allows staff and children to really get to know each other. We recognise the uniqueness of each child and make sure we encourage a love of learning, self-esteem, enquiring and open minds and support the skills required to communicate, grow in independence and share.
You too can join in! St Joseph’s is a school with a real ‘family’ ethos. We encourage parents to become involved in their child’s learning and organise special ‘stay and play’ sessions so you can see just what we get up to when you’re not here! Or come and watch our annual Pedal Push, Sports Day, Country Dancing and Friday Assemblies – you will be amazed by our talents.
