Welcome to St Joseph’s…

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.
Staff and governors are committed to ensuring that our school provides your child with an excellent education, in a caring and friendly atmosphere.
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 of all faiths 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.
