About Us

St Joseph’s Infant School is a warm and welcoming school providing a sound education for all of our children.

We are a small infant school with only three classes: Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. As such, we pride ourselves on the warm, family atmosphere we provide for our children. The uniqueness of our small community means that every member of staff knows every child well and enables us to develop very strong relationships with all of our families.

We work closely with the Parish and the local community. We liaise carefully with St Joseph’s Junior School, to ensure that your child’s transition to the junior school at the end of Year 2 is as smooth as possible.

We are always happy to welcome parents and families into our school. Your child’s progress can be discussed at any time and we are happy to help or advise in any way we can.

There are many opportunities for you to become involved with your child’s school life for example: open days; workshops; information meetings; parental consultation meetings; Early Bird reading programme, Family Learning Sessions, accompanying classes on visits; assemblies; Liturgies; Masses and many, many more.

Our website gives just a flavour of St Joseph’s Infant School and provides information about a variety of aspects of school life. It is also a place where we can share and celebrate the achievements, experiences and learning of our children.

We would encourage you to visit the ‘Our Classes’ pages on a regular basis to see what our children have been up to and please keep an eye on the ‘Our News’ page.

We look forward to working with you and aim to help your son or daughter to achieve their full potential during their time with us and also to enjoy themselves and develop a deep life long love of learning which will allow them to access all of the opportunities life throws their way.
