"With God in our hearts, we learn and grow together on our journey through life"
I would like to welcome you to the St Joseph's Catholic Primary School website. I hope you find our information useful and informative as well as providing engaging learning resources for your child.
St Joseph's is a welcoming and inclusive Catholic school attached to the Parish of St Raphael's, Kingston, and is part of the Diocese of Southwark. We have close links with Father Michael Lovell and the parish. As a strong Catholic community, gospel values permeate all aspects of school life.
As headteacher I value highly our strong relationship with parents, parish and the local community. We actively encourage parents to become involved in the life of the school. Throughout the year there are a variety of opportunities to support the school and to be involved with the children's learning and to celebrate their achievements. Please do come along and support the school.
Children come first at St Joseph's and we strive to ensure all children feel happy and safe in their learning environment. Our committed staff provide a broad and stimulating curriculum to motivate the children to learn and develop their enquiring minds. The curriculum we offer is an inclusive one, which celebrates everyone's individuality, focussing on their talents, interests and skills whilst being mindful of any challenges that might prevent an individual from succeeding, giving all our children strategies to become successful, confident and independent learners.
Our philosphy is to actively support children to become increasingly independent and to be in charge of their own learning and development. Every child's successes are celebrated and each child is encouraged to grow and achieve excellence in all aspects of their spiritual, moral, physical, emotional and educational development.
If you would like to visit the school you are welcome. Please contact the School office on firstname.lastname@example.org (or telephone 0208 546 7178) and I will endeavour to meet you personally.
Mrs Lorraine Flower
