Welcome to St Joseph’s Infants & Reception

Welcome to St Joseph’s Infants & Reception

Our children love being in school and are happy, independent learners who are encouraged to be the best they can be and challenge themselves. Learning in the infant school is fun, creative and based on high expectations for all learners.

We nurture our young people to ask questions and be confident to share their ideas. Pupil voice is a strength and our infant curriculum promotes discussion of topical issues and the wider world.

We develop children’s personal, social and emotional skills as they investigate and explore the world around them. Children regularly demonstrate our school values of respect, kindness and tolerance.

‘Together We Can’ is our school motto and can be seen in daily life through pupil interaction. Our children work together in a supportive way and are encouraged to find solutions to problems.

This empowers them with critical thinking skills and the social and emotional skills needed to succeed. Developing reading, writing and mathematics skills are key to empowering our children to be successful.

Our curriculum is wide to include all foundations subjects, so children extend their knowledge and understanding of history, geography, art, design, science, computing, music and P.E.

We want our children to be aspirational with a thirst for knowledge and the resilience and determination to achieve their dreams. We nurture our children to have self-belief, aim high and above all have compassion, believing they can make a difference to the world we live in.
