Head's Newsletter

Dear Pupils, Parent, Staff, and Governors,

I am very much looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow evening at the winter gala. This year we have a 70’s disco theme and there will be karaoke and photo booths as well as food and bar. If you haven’t already got your ticket, you can come along and pay on the door.

I was delighted at the weekend to see that St Joseph’s is in the top 200 schools in the country according to the Sunday Times. This places us in the top 1% of state primary schools which is an incredible achievement. I asked the children why they thought St Joseph’s was so special and they came back with some lovely responses:

  • ‘Everyone is kind and helpful’.

  • ‘We all support each other’.

  • ‘We are one family’

Long may it continue!

Please remember that we are a nut free school and therefore the children cannot bring in cereal bar snacks. The only snack that children are allowed to eat in school is fruit.

As the Christmas holiday approach, please remember that we do not break up from school until 21st December. Please do not book holidays before that date. Many thanks.

This week Jarvis is going home with Stella D in violet 2 who is always kind and considerate to everyone in school. What a good role model.

I am sure many of you are aware of the new GDPR regulations that came into effect in May. These new laws have been put in place in order to protect identity and personal data. Please be mindful when using any whatsApp groups that may be associated with school that information shared on these can be public and you may be held to account for information disclosed or opinions expressed if presented as factual.

May God bless you and keep you and your family safe.
