Just like a family....
From the Early Years Unit to Year 6, children are encouraged to become confident, responsible members of our school and community. Whether by acting as a School Councillor or by speaking at our weekly 'Sharing Assembly', St Joseph's helps children to develop into well-rounded individuals.
School Council: at the beginning of each school year, 2 children from each class are voted onto the Council by their classmates. The Council and the Headteacher meet once a term to discuss issues raised by classmates and to have a say on decisions made in school. They also help to carry out pupil surveys.
Our Councillors for 2017/18
School Houses: St Joseph's has four school houses: St Francis, St Teresa, St Dominic and St Mary Magdalene.
House captains and Sports Captains are appointed by the children in each house in the Autumn term and take a lead in school events, such as Sports Day and the School Quiz, which takes place three times a year.
Our Eco captains help us as a school to be more eco friendly by making sure lights and projectors are switched off, doors are closed and the site is litter free.
