  • Working at St Joseph's means working within a positive team that support one another and celebrate each other's successes.
  • The systems in place at St Joseph's means that everyone is clear and on the same page about what is expected. We are well-prepared and organised, ready to deliver high quality lessons and achieve high quality outcomes.
  • We are constantly improving our practice. The weekly professional development meetings are well organised and clear which allows me to be an effective and ambitious teacher.
  • The progress that the children make in phonics is a direct result of the way we structure our lessons to provide rigorous, high quality teaching of reading and writing.
