Welcome Message From Mrs Wheeler (Headteacher)
Dear Parents and Carers,
Firstly, I would like to welcome you and your child to St Joseph’s School and community. We look forward to building a strong relationship and partnership with you and your family to support your child as they grow and progress through their primary school life. I know that if we work together, your child will have many happy memories, have a strong foundation for secondary school and adult life and will have achieved numerous and various successes; personally and academically, over their years, whilst at St Joseph’s.
We are a single form entry school and this allows us to know all the children individually. We have Christ at the centre of everything we do, and everything we do is for the children. The staff are caring and committed to the children and as a team they make the school a happy, fun place to be where everyone knows they are loved and belong. Each member of staff strives for the children to flourish as individuals: feeling happy, confident and proud of their achievements.
I would like to thank you for choosing our school for your child and entrusting us over the next 7 years to make their primary school journey the best it can be. As a parent I understand the love you have for your child, and how important and precious your child is to you, so I know how carefully you have chosen your child’s school.
This booklet will give you a background of what you can expect when your child starts in September and some tips on preparing your child for this stage in their life. Please read carefully.
Take care and I look forward to meeting you and your child.
Mrs K. Wheeler
