Here at St Joseph's the children are busy preparing for Christmas by learning about Advent in their classes at at Assembly.  We also enjoyed a KS1 and KS2 Mass on Monday to celebrate the beginning of the Advent season.

We now have a new Advent Wreath which will be lit every week at the Friday Assembly and also a beautiful real Christmas tree which the pupil chaplains thoughtfully decorated.

Many thanks for your continued support and have a peaceful and holy Christmas.

Mrs Irene Williams

Acting Head Teacher




In line with government recommendations please ensure that any snack you give your child to be eaten at playtime is either fresh fruit or a packet of raisins (as issued in early years).

 Furthermore please do not supply any fizzy drinks or sports drinks in children’s lunchboxes.
