The Quiet Space

The Quiet Space. A place for children to use when they’re feeling overwhelmed, anxious or just in need of some quiet time. We’re so pleased with our new little room!

Thank you!

Wishing our Year 6 children, along with families who are leaving St Joseph’s after many years, all the very best for the future. We are so proud and grateful to have been able to help guide and support you through your primary school years. Thank you too for all of the generous gifts and cards that so many of the staff received, these are never expected or taken for granted but I promise are very much appreciated. Take care and have a lovely, relaxing and safe summer break 😎

Safer Internet Day

Tuesday, 8 February 2022

Today is Safer Internet Day! Although our children learn how to stay safe online through every computing unit of work, today they did a little bit extra! The theme this year is ‘Together for a better internet.’ The children learned even more about how our online behaviour can impact on both ourselves and others.

Shelia talking to our Year 6 children

On Monday 14th June the children from Year 6 took part in a Road Safety talk provided by Dudley.

EYFS Bus and Police Visit

Tuesday, 25 February 2020

Fun on the bus!

On Tuesday 25th February the children from Nursery and Reception had some very special visitors from National Express West Midlands and a local Police Officer who all brought a bus with them to school!

The children loved exploring the bus and talking about bus travel and they listened very carefully to the police officer who talked about how he keeps people safe on the bus too!

It was a lovely morning and all the children had a wonderful time!
