the welfare of children and young people. We expect all
staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.

welfare of any of our pupils, please contact Mrs Elder

Do you have any additional comments?

 

This is what parents said;

 

"An excellent school! Teachers really care about all the children and there is a real family ethos present. Every child looks happy and they are always smiling. If that is not an environment conducive to learning I don't know what is!

 

Cannot recommend this school enough. Been going through some stuff and the help me and my daughter has received and is still receiving is amazing. 

 

On the whole the school has been excellent from when my daughter joined part way through Year 2, not speaking much English to where she is now in Year 6 all while a pandemic has been ongoing. I would absolutely recommend this school to others.

 

Fantastic school and fantastic teachers. My children absolutely love coming to St Joseph's. 

 

Fantastic school, fantastic staff!!

 

Excellent School/Teachers

 

Fantastic School

 

Great School/Teachers

 

Fantastic School, and all the teachers are amazing, supportive and there for the kids.

 

St Joseph's is an excellent school and my daughter loves it.  All of the teachers are friendly and approachable and if I've had any problems they've always been dealt with efficiently. I'll be sad when my daughter leaves for high school. 

 

My son has moved to this school recently and he is absolutely loving being at St Joseph's. He is always happy going to school and always eager to learn. 

 

St Joseph's is a fantastic school. My children both love it and I would tell anyone to go there.

 

An amazing school that I would recommend to any prospective parent. Very kind, caring staff.

 

Absolutely fantastic school"
