Catholic education has a well earned, and respected, reputation for the breadth, depth and excellence of its curriuclum based on Catholic social teaching and values.   

 

We are working hard to review and refresh our curriculum to ensure the academic excellence in line with our curriuclum intent statement.  Please visit the curriculum pages on the website which explain in further detail about our core curriulum (English, Maths and Science), our foundation subjects areas (including Latin/French, geography, history, music, PE, computing, DT, art & design)  and our additional subjects which add further breadth (including forest school, chess, music and public speaking).  There is also a page to explain more about the RE Curriculum at St Joseph's.

We are so proud of our school site - here is a link to a 'gallery' of our site.

 

Our EYFS has recently been completely renovated.  We are very excited at the changes to our learning environment as we know that this is the second teacher and is central to Reception provision.  We have also worked hard on developing the rest of the school to ensure that the whole site is an inspiring, organsied and well resourced environment to support our aim of academic excellence.  Recent changes include our new library area in the centre of the school, our new front office, our new running track, our well-being 'pod', our polytunnel and outside learning provision, and our new climbing equipment in the KS1 playground.  Come and have a look!
