In the St. Joseph’s family, learning together through Jesus, we aim to develop to the fullest possible extent the whole person, socially, emotionally, creatively, academically, physically and spiritually.
Our Catholic ethos and identity is a part of everything we do at St Joseph’s. Below are some of the ways in which we practise and live out our faith as a school family:
Adoremus is an initiative of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales to create a special opportunity to reflect on the centrality of the Eucharist in the life of the Church. Pope Francis is encouraging all schools and parishes to be active and encourage a greater appreciation of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.

A newsletter explains what the Adoremus initiative is all about – Adoremus Newsletter 19.10.18
Westminster Prayer – Join us in prayer:
Jesus, You are truly present
in the Most Holy Eucharist.
Help me feel Your presence
every time I visit you.
Give me Your strength
when I receive You
in Holy Communion.
And, receiving Your love,
help me take that love to others.
I ask this in Your name.
Guardian Angels – Our Chaplaincy Team is made up of our ‘Guardian Angels’:
As Guardian Angels, we promise:
- to help others learn through Jesus;
- to communicate with Jesus by leading prayer times in class and in assemblies;
- to help guide others to love one another just as Jesus loves us;
- to set an example to others within the family of St Joseph’s.
Our powerpoint shows some of our Christmas activities, including our Infant Nativity performance, our project for the homeless charity ‘Four Walls’ and a special tea party to say farewell to the lovely Sister Lucina, who has been part of our school family for many years! Christmas 2018 ppt
Our new adopted charity is ‘Four Walls’, who help rough sleepers in our local area. We collected items to fill 59 care packs for the homeless in December 2018! Find out more about them here. https://www.fourwallscharity.com/
Our Choir and hand bell team sang their hearts out in the bitter cold and we will be giving £1,000 to Four Walls from our efforts.
