Kindness win the House Cup

Friday, 7 April 2017

Our Kindness House Captain receiving the cup!

On Friday 7th April during the merit assembly the House Cup was presented to the Kindness House Captain form Year 6.

During the term since Christmas it had been a very close contest between all of our house point teams with the leader board changing almost on a weekly basis – but in the end it was Kindness who secured the victory and have the cup dressed in their team colours!

Well done Kindness!

The children receiving the awards from the Mayor

On Monday 13th March Miss Jukes and some children from Year 6 visited the Mayors Parlour in Dudley to collect a special certificate and trophy.

St Joseph’s was awarded a certificate and lovely trophy for “the highest average collection per pupil” during the Poppy Appeal 2016.

We are really proud to receive this award as it shows how seriously we take contributing to the Poppy Appeal each year in school along with how generous the children and families of St Joseph’s are.

Our certificate from taking part in Safer Internet Day 2017

On Tuesday 7th February all of the children at St Joseph’s took part in Safer Internet Day – “Be the change: Unite for a better internet”.

The children all learned about the importance of staying safe on the internet by completing a range of age appropriate activities including watching videos, creating posters and sharing role-plays!

The children all worked very hard and have now deepened their understanding of how to stay safe online.

Estate water supply problem causes us to close

Friday, 27 January 2017

Information from South Staffs Water informing us of the water supply cut off

Unfortunately on Friday 27th January we were forced to close our school for pupils due to a water supply problem on the Kate’s Hill Estate.

We were informed at 8am┬áthat due to a burst water pipe on the Kate’s Hill Estate the water supply to the school had been turned off and due to health and hygiene reasons we were forced to close the school.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused to parents, but this was completely out of our control – however we’re sure the children enjoyed a long weekend!
