Welcome to St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

As Headteacher of St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, I would like to welcome you to our school website.

St Joseph’s is part of a thriving community in the market town of Newbury, where we are all committed to fulfilling our Mission Statement:

Following in Jesus’ footsteps;

 Recognising the Holy Spirit in ourselves and each other; and

 Nurturing our God-given gifts.

Our Catholic ethos means that we are faithful to Gospel values and strive to live by the teachings of Jesus Christ. 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. We encourage pupils not only to explore their own beliefs but to understand other faiths, fulfilling the British values of tolerance and respect.

We strive to ensure that our pupils achieve their academic potential. We are highly committed to helping every child to make good progress from the moment they join our school in Reception when they are 4 years old until they leave us at the end of Year 6, so they are ready for the next stage of their academic journey.

I hope that you enjoy browsing our website and find it informative. Do take the time to read our newsletters which will give you a further insight into the vibrant life of our school community. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any further questions or would like to arrange a visit; you will always be welcomed at St Joseph’s!
