At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, we provide our pupils with a rich, varied and balanced curriculum in a safe, caring and nurturing environment which is underpinned by our Mission Statement: Together we love, learn and follow Jesus.
Every child is recognised as an individual with their own strengths, interests and talents. We celebrate and welcome uniqueness and diversity and show respect for ourselves and others. Through our broad and ambitious curriculum, we employ a climate of high aspiration and challenge where children are encouraged to develop their inter-personal and collaborative learning skills as well as their own independence as learners. We build character by creating opportunities for children to try new things, problem solve and develop resilience through varied, challenging learning opportunities where they can experience first-hand the joy of discovery. This provides context to learning and promotes a better way of remembering new things. Fostering a love of learning and an inquisitive mind always sits at the heart of our curriculum.
Children are encouraged to listen to others and to be critical, creative thinkers. We celebrate our local area and enable the children to take an active role in events throughout the year whilst developing a sense of belonging to their community. We love to learn outdoors and we consciously develop a clear understanding of our environmental responsibility and the need to preserve the precious world we live in.
Through our curriculum, we create a happy, enjoyable learning culture where children develop a love of learning, a thirst for knowledge and are equipped with the skills to become lifelong learners.
