…we strive to maintain and develop an atmosphere of love and trust and respect for all the different people who make up our community. We are a small multicultural family, welcoming, joyful and relaxed; a family of faith, ready to meet each other’s needs.
Saint Joseph’s Catholic Primary School is a one form entry, multicultural school situated behind Borough High Street in the ‘shadow of The Shard’. Although we serve a mainly Catholic community, we also have children of other faiths and of none. We are very much a ‘family’ community where there is respect and understanding of all the different people, whatever their background, who make up our school. Over thirty different languages are represented in the school. We pride ourselves that visitors to our school comment on how polite and well behaved our children are and adults in school strive to be positive role models for the families who make up our community. All of our staff are aspirational for our children.
As well as having high expectations academically, we believe in nurturing and developing the personal, social and emotional side of each child so they grow up as loved, confident and curious young people. We want to produce individuals who routinely form meaningful relationships, ready for their secondary education, willing to help others in their community, contributing positively to society. We are an inclusive school, working together as a team to ensure each child achieves their best.
