Welcome from the Headteacher
On behalf of the pupils, staff and Governors I would like to warmly welcome you to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School. I hope your visit to our website is informative and gives you an insight into the learning that takes place.
We have recently updated our school mission statement, which encompasses the values we believe are strong for us, as well as taking from the qualities of our Patron Saint – Joseph:
‘Following St Joseph, we grow closer to Jesus through our hard work, perseverance and kindness.’
Our school is unique in that it is the only Primary school set in the historic town of Droitwich and we are fortunate to have lovely grounds, including two forest school sites. Many of the children stay with us until the end of Year 6 when they transfer to Blessed Edward Oldcorne College in Worcester. We pride ourselves on maintaining creativity and memorable experiences alongside implementing the rigorous National Curriculum 2014.
We offer a high quality, broad and balanced curriculum within our Catholic setting. We welcome children from the Catholic faith, other faiths and from families of no denomination. We recognise the uniqueness of each child and place a strong emphasis on getting to know and understand the needs of the individuals. We are proud of our caring and inclusive ethos and the happy, calm environment in which our children learn. We have high expectations of learning and behaviour for each pupil and aim to encourage them to achieve their full potential in all they do – in their work, play and spiritual development.
Our Catholic Church in Droitwich, Sacred Heart and St Catherine of Alexandria, is adorned with mosaics and we believe that each individual is like a mosaic piece- beautiful on its own but when put within the rest of the Body of Christ, working as part of a team, each individual contributes to an even more spectacular whole. We work closely with the parish in preparing the children to receive their sacraments and we have strong relationships with our parents. The Governors are very supportive of our school and have high expectations of all stakeholders to provide the very best for our pupils.
I hope you enjoy browsing our website, we are always happy to welcome visitors to our school; should you like to arrange a visit, please contact the school office to make an appointment.
