St Joseph's Day
We celebrated St Joseph's Day with a special visitor from Barnabas R.E. company who led workshops on the themes of Responsibility, Respect and Resilience. We learnt how St Joseph demonstrated these three values in agreeing to be Jesus' earthly Father and we had a go at acting out some Bible stories. Have a look at some photos from our day!
Key principles of Catholic Social Teaching
Every class, from Nursery to Year 6, created a fantastic display based on the key principles encouraged by Pope Francis. We will be focusing on one of these every half-term. The principles we have chosen to focus on across this year are: Stewardship, Family, Peace, Poor, Rights and Responsibilities and Dignity of the Human Person.
Autumn 1 focus: Family

What’s the Governors’ Fund?
All Catholic Voluntary Aided Schools must raise a voluntary fund from parents, governors and friends to cover at least 10% of the cost of repairs and improvements to the school building and to fund extra facilities and activities for the children.
This is The Governors’ Fund. It relies on donations from parents, governors, teachers and friends.
The school receives funding from the Government to cover salaries, educational materials and other essentials. But this does not cover all our costs and without this fund we would not be not able to undertake essential repairs and improvements
How can you help?
To allow us to continue this work, we are asking each family for a voluntary donation of £15 each term.
You can pay:
by cash or cheque (payable to St Joseph’s Governors’ Fund); or
electronic transfer or direct debit (account no 01292390, sort code 30-94-77).
Payments can be made:
each term (£15 each term); or
annually (£45 each year).
Please also let us know if you would be interested in running a fundraising event.
All contributions are warmly welcomed.
From the Governors at St Josephs, for the children…
