Catholic Life

As a Catholic school we 'Share God's love'.  Christ is at the centre of all we do at St Joseph's.  We make time each day to come together in collective worship, to give thanks to God.  We teach the children about prayer and give them the opportunity to pray several times during the day.

We strive to include all children in the worship, encouraging them to take part through reading, discussions and singing.  Children are guided to lead their own class worships.

Parents join us for many of our whole school liturgical celebrations, our St Joseph's Feast Day, Mass and Collective Worships.

We welcome our Parish community into school.  We have regular visits from Father Frank to say Mass and to provide input into the curriculum.
