Welcome to St Joseph's Catholic Primary School
Walking hand in hand with Jesus...
"We are a Christian school in the Catholic tradition. We aim to develop and nurture the religious education and spirituality of all within the school community. There is a universal call to each Catholic school to recognise its uniqueness and diversity. As a school, we believe we are called upon to celebrate and respond to this.
St Joseph's is a community made up of people at different stages in their journey of faith; for some children this will be their first opportunity to hear the good news of the Gospel. We aim to grow together, through worship, liturgy, prayer and education in an understanding of what it is to be a member of the Christian community.
To facilitate this journey of faith, St Joseph's seeks to develop the whole person through Revelation (God's Self Revelation), Church (Communion of Life in Christ), Celebration (Living the Christian Mystery in Worship and Prayer) and Life in Christ (The Search for Holiness and Truth) in accordance with the Catholic Education Service guidelines"
At St Joseph's we welcome children of all faiths between the ages of 3 and 11. We are part of the Dominic Barberi Multi Academy Company.
Our children have a big part in their learning, they have opportunities to choose topics and areas of learning - we take pride in offering a wide and varied curriculum.
Families are welcome to come to visit our school, either book a visit or call in during one of our Open Sessions which are held during the afternoon on the last Friday of the month during term time. Our children are very proud of their school and welcome the opportunity to show you around.
We are able to accept in-year transfer applications. However, to avoid any disappointment, please contact the school to ensure that there are still places available.
St Joseph's School Prayer

Footsteps is Oxfordshire County Council’s child pedestrian road safety scheme. Parents and families are the best people to teach their children the skills needed for road safety. The aim of Footsteps is for children to learn to take responsibility and make decisions under the supervision of an adult. Footsteps enables parents and carers to gradually teach their child according to age and ability until each child is able to become independent. Parents are encouraged to ask lots of open questions and discuss road safety skills which they may not have thought about. Here is a link to the leaflet.
