Head's Newsletter

Dear children, parents, staff and governors,

This week has been a very exciting one for all year groups in St. Joseph’s as it is ‘ Fun with Fractions’  maths  week.  All the classes undertook maths activities that included fractions and at assembly today the children showed posters of the work they had done and explained what they had learned over the past week.  This work will be displayed in the school foyer so please do come and have a look.

Just to remind you all, you can see what is happening in your child/ren’s classes by looking at the blog section of the school website. Teacher’s update this section regularly with photos and comments.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Julie Conroy for her twenty three years of wonderful service to our school.  Mrs. Conroy has two children who were educated here at St. Joseph’s and she has worked as our School Business Manager.  As Mrs. Conroy requested a low key event to mark her leaving,  the children and staff have celebrated with her today and the Governing Body and Diocese wish me to thank her for all she has done for our children over the years.  

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. V. Richardson
Head teacher
