General Information


Here at St Joseph's, we strive to create an environment where children develop a life long love of learning.  We aim to give them the skills that they need to be successful at St Joseph's and beyond. 

We recognise that different children learn in different ways and plan an engaging and relevant curriculum that reflects this - lessons will include visual, auditory and kinaesthetic methods of delivery.  Each child is valued as a unique individual and their education will be tailored to get the best out of them.

Whilst we acknowledge the importance of the core subjects like reading, writing, mathematics and science, we understand the need to develop a well rounded curriculum that is enriched by the teaching of art, design and technology, computing, sports and many other areas.  We aim to give the children frequent opportunities to learn outside of the school grounds in the form of the many trips that we attend each year.  We feel that this ethos towards education gives children the opportunities to discover and develop a wide range of talents.

At St Joseph's, we deliver and meet all statutory requirements of the National Curriculum and deliver all subjects as follows:

  • English,
  • Mathematics,
  • Science,
  • Religious Education,
  • Computing,
  • Geography,
  • History,
  • Physical Education,
  • Art and Design,
  • Personal, Social and Health Education
  • Music.

Children in both Key Stages also receive a modern foreign language (MFL) lesson, which is French.

These subjects are often taught through a particular topic so that the children have to make links between their learning but will also be taught separately when required.
