Head's Newsletter

Dear Pupils, Parent, Staff, and Governors,

This week the staff team have been reflecting on how we make St Joseph’s even better for all of the children in our school. We looked at what we are already doing and the initiatives that we feel are making a difference to the children in our care.  We thought about what our core purpose is and how we can put our mission statement into action.  To do our best for all of the children means doing the simple things really well, achieving consistency across our systems and processes, and everyone in school having the highest expectations of themselves and others.  We have a clear plan for how we can achieve this and an unshakeable commitment from all our staff to make this work.  It is an exciting and stimulating time to be the Head here at St Joseph’s, and I am grateful for the on-going support and trust of the school community.  It is a pleasure to work with such a committed group of professionals who are so willing and eager to share their expertise and knowledge.

Well done to our super tennis players who came first in the inter-schools competition this week.  The tennis team will be heading to Crystal Palace in the next couple of weeks for the London wide finals.  We look forward to seeing them at Wimbledon in the next few years!

All of KS2 enjoyed a fantastic day at Lords on Tuesday enjoying the cricket.  The children were very enthusiastic and behaved themselves beautifully.  

Next Tuesday we will be celebrating our patron saint, St Joseph the worker.  Parents are invited to join us in the school hall for mass at 2pm.

The NSPCC has a very informative website with lots of tips and advice on how to keep children safe from harm.  The underwear rule is very useful to share with children and the site has lots of fun activities to do at home.

PANTS reminds children that:
Privates are private.
Always remember that your body belongs to you.
No means no.
Talk about secrets that upset you.
Speak up, someone can help.

This week Jarvis will be going home with Riley in year 5 who is always kind, caring and inclusive.  Thank you for being such a great member of our school, Riley.

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

Mrs K Husain
Head teacher
