Following in Jesus’ footsteps;

 Recognising the Holy Spirit in ourselves and each other; and

St Joseph's Nursery


St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, a welcoming  school with a family feel, are excited to have recently opened their brand new Nursery Class. St Joseph’s has been rated “Good” by Ofsted in March 2018 , recognising its strengths as a” happy and inclusive school.”

We aim to ensure that our children not only succeed academically, but also grow spiritually and morally, developing into fully rounded individuals. We foster strong links with our Parishes of St Joseph’s and St Francis de Sales and work as a team to support our children’s journey in faith.

Our brand new Nursery class has 26 full time places or part time equivalent. We can offer both 30 hour and 15 hour places and children can join us from the term after their third birthday. We also offer breakfast and after school club facilities, which enables parents to have access to wrap around care.

The new Nursery classroom has undergone a complete refurbishment both inside and out. We are fortunate to have a large, stimulating outside area for the children to play and explore, including a Sensory area, Music area and a garden. The indoor environment is made up of two large classroom areas, with new furniture and resources to enhance and support the children’s learning and development, reflecting all areas of the Early Years Curriculum.

We work closely with parents to ensure each child’s individual strengths are nurtured and we are in constant communication with them to support their learning journey.

Our Nursery class is a fantastic addition to our school. With experienced and passionate Nursery staff, we are looking forward to welcoming new children and their families to our community.
