A message from the Headteacher

A warm welcome to our website at Saint Joseph’s!

We hope you will find information about our school and learn more about the excellent opportunities we provide for our children.

I am delighted to be the new headteacher of this great school community and am looking forward to sharing more news with you on the website as we get our year underway. I have been made so welcome by our staff and children and I am looking forward to getting to know everyone over the coming weeks. We have an exciting year ahead and we will endeavour to keep you up to date.

If you need any help or further information then please contact Karen Coggins or Mary O’Reilly in the school office and they will assist you with your query and will be happy to provide paper copies of anything on this website upon request.

Mr F O’Kane

At Saint Joseph’s our priority is to ensure all children feel protected and safe. Governors and staff are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We expect all parents, carers, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.

 Pupils are making rapid progress in phonics.

 The school’s approach to teaching science has been transformed.

 The high profile given to literacy development across the school is also seen through a variety of subjects. 

School self-evaluation is thorough and an appropriate development plan has been put in place.

Pupils in key stage 1 are ambitious to do well in mathematics and are making good progress.

Teachers are (also) using rich texts so that pupils deepen their understanding and link their reading and writing.
