School profile

St Joseph's Catholic Academy

At St. Joseph’s Catholic Academy, you will find a welcoming and purposeful environment, with relationships built on mutual respect.

Our supportive pastoral systems help pupils to achieve above and beyond their expectations and develop a strong sense of character, to know what is right and just, and to be responsible for themselves, their peers and the world to which they belong. We support this through nurturing pupils’ spiritually, emotionally and academically – we encourage creativity, independent thinking and learning, and a love of learning through new experiences and enrichment opportunities.

We are committed to providing a purposeful, progressive and inclusive curriculum that places Christ at the centre and children at the heart. Our curriculum drivers are woven through all that we do and underpin our shared belief that our role is to support children in understanding their place as a global citizen, having the aspirations to achieve, and writing the chapters of their life story. The character virtues of respect and responsibility, justice and compassion, confidence and resilience, honesty and self-belief, run through our curriculum and are designed to help children develop their sense of self and be ready to move with confidence onto their next chapter.
