Our keys all hanging up at the front of the hall

On Friday 8th June, following our Anti-Bullying Assembly, Mr Gilbert very kindly found a place in the hall to hang up all of the keys the children creating detailing the ‘Key to being a good friend’.

Our spelling winners

On Friday 8th June during our merit assembly we congratulated all of the Spelling and Phonics winners from last half term and presented them with a £5 Tesco Voucher.

Each week the children have spellings and phonics to learn and if they get full marks in their test they earn a raffle ticket which is put into a jar.  Each half term a ticket is drawn from the jar and the child wins a £5 voucher!

Our new school signs!

Our new signs!

On Tuesday 27th March our new school signs were installed in all of the classrooms and shared spaces in school.

Along with our school’s mission statement each class now has an addition trio of signs: St Joseph – to remind us that our school was named after a good and kind man, the Values Tree – to remind us of values which we try our best to live by and our School Prayer – written by our school Mission Team.

The signs look great and are an excellent addition to our Catholic school.
