Class and HT Tweets
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School website. I hope it gives you an invaluable insight into our school community and its ethos.
We are very lucky to serve the parishes of St. Anne’s, Winlaton and St. Joseph’s, Blaydon and enjoy excellent relationships with both parishes and our Catholic ethos is at the heart of our newly written Mission Statement.
All are welcome in St Joseph’s
Where everyone is special, cared for,
and challenged to be the best they can be,
in our safe and happy school.
We strive to love justice, show mercy and
walk wisely and humbly with God.
We will love one another in Christ
knowing that Jesus loves us very much.
This was produced by staff, parents, parishioners and children working together and reflects how much we value partnership especially with parents.
We see our role as supporting parents by developing strong links between family and school, enabling us to journey together with respect and in Christ. If you would like to find out more about St Joseph’s, please feel free to contact us.
I hope you enjoy our website.
