October- The Rosary


As we are unable to send the Rosary bags home this year, we have attached a range of resources that you could use to reflect on the Month of Mary. Please send photographs of your child(ren) praying the rosary, creating their own craft, writing prayers or singing hymns to the office email:

Mysteries of the Rosary

Year of the Word Launch


Pope Francis asks us to think about the Word of God this year by journeying with Matthew. This initiative focuses on celebrating, living and sharing God's word throughout the Catholic Church. St. Joseph's have begun their journey through focusing on a different Bible story in each year group. The children have enjoyed their creative activities and many parents came to see what we have been working on. 

Advent Stars 2019 - congratulations and thank you for being such shining examples of how to be witness to your faith.

Advent Bag - the children have been taking home our Advent Bags and using them to pray with their family at home.

Thank you so much to the parents who have sent in photographs of their child / children using the Rosary bags at home. How wonderful to see families sharing in prayer to Our Lady.

I am pleased to announce the success of our recent Religion Inspection, which was held on Wednesday 9th November 2016. The full report is below and we would love for you to have a read and find out about the wonderful work going on here at St Joseph's.


I would like to thank Mrs Green, Miss Martin and Miss Mitchell who have been our Religion Leaders over the past two years and have worked incredibly hard, with all of the staff and children, to help us to achieve this outcome.


As always the report reflects how hard our pupils work and how kind and considerate they are and how hard they try to walk in Jesus' footsteps, which makes St Joseph's such a fabulous place to be and helps us to be such a fantastic learning community!


I hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I did. A brief summary of the 6 areas assessed against is:

Catholic Leadership - Outstanding

Word - Good

Welcome - Outstanding

Worship - Good

Welfare - Outstanding

Witness - Outstanding
