Welcome to Saint Joseph’s Catholic Academy web site. We do hope that this web site gives you a little insight into our academy; all who visit and attend believe it is a very special place, but don’t just take my word for it come and see for yourself.
We are a small single entry school, where we strive to provide an education, which develops the ‘whole child’ in a caring, Christian ethos. We have a vision that, it is our shared responsibility to ensure all children receive an education which will prepare them well for the next stage of their education and to be good law abiding citizens with a strong belief in what is right and wrong, plus a belief in themselves and their own ability. It is important that we give them the skills to aspire to be the best that they can be.
At the same time our mission statement, ‘ We value all in the name of Jesus the Christ’ permeates through all we do and supports the belief that we are all equal in God’s eyes and therefore in ours!
We celebrate the diversity of all our pupils, staff and governors and want to work together create a strong learning culture where it is safe to fail and support is given when needed.
As you look through our web site you will see how we embrace a wide and varied curriculum which allows children to gain a deeper understanding of the world around them.
In September 2015 we were very excited to open our new nursery; it is so wonderful to have these young children joining us in assemblies and other events. Children are admitted throughout the year as they turn three, at the present time you are able to buy some extra sessions, to the 15 hours funded, please contact the office or apply on line for more details. 30 hours funding is also available to those eligible.
September 2015 was a busy time for us, as we also launched our new 'Wrap Around Care’. I can assure you your children will be well looked after between the hours of 08:00- 17:15 if you need this service.
Thank you for taking the time to read my introductory letter, for more information please delve further into this web site or visit the school, we would love to show you round. We are all very proud of Saint Joseph’s Academy.
Hope to see you soon.
Sarah K. Pollard (Mrs.)
