At St Joseph’s each child is encouraged and supported to be a successful learner and grow in their faith. We believe each individual is a unique gift from God and that our purpose as a Christian community is to nurture and develop each child.
At St Joseph’s we provide a broad and balanced curriculum through which we seek to ensure high academic standards. We have achieved a Platinum standard award in physical education and take pride in our sporting success in the local area. The children do a daily mile every day to ensure they are fit and healthy and to encourage positive attitudes to fitness and well-being. We have a silver Linguamarque mark for our French teaching and in every class has a language ambassador...

Ash Wednesday liturgy and distribution of Ashes. The whole school came together for the start of Lent. We considered using the time productively by fasting, praying and being charitable. We will wear our crosses today as a sign that we know we can be better people. @RCEastAnglia https://t.co/9uwWYUkwg2
Animal Experience visits our school. The children in Key Stage 1 had a wonderful morning learning about the exotic animals that came to visit. They asked lots of questions and were able to hold each one. We also had a whole school assembly. https://t.co/SGJZ07uhrz
Bumble comes to school. Mr Bloomfield’s dog Bumble visited Moses Class this morning. The children asked questions about Bumble’s diet, routines, exercise and favourite treats! Bumble showed off his tricks and behaved impeccably whist having his teeth brushed. https://t.co/lwEq6QlRzb
County Final Athletics in Newmarket The children have arrived and are super excited. To qualify we were up against much larger schools, so we have done exceptionally well. We know the competition will be even harder today. https://t.co/LBpCGgvMC0
Gardening sets delivered to school. Mary, CO-OP Member Pioneer for Lavenham and Great Cornard came to deliver gardening sets to early years this morning. These will be used often and the plants will provide habitats and sustenance for small creatures. #itswhatwedo https://t.co/wr7SIMk5h1

Hamper makers in the library this afternoon. All the hampers look wonderful! Thank you to all the parents who have donated items, the class coordinators, and hamper makers. They will be raffled off after the performances next week. https://t.co/4UuliygZTs
Christmas dinner day. We had some cheeky elves helping Santa, who left his reindeer on the roof. Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who made the lunch so much fun! https://t.co/MtfRxnEOMr
So glad we moved our child the best thing we could have done, lovely service today both Heads speak from the heart.
I just wanted to say thank you for all you have done for our child, we were so worried about the transition because of his additional needs but everything has run so smoothly and he is very happy.
I am so impressed with the way the children are conducting themselves, they are so focussed and want to achieve. Their class teacher has given them so much self-belief.
We ask you to extend our thanks and congratulations to everyone from the school who was involved in the carol service at the Sudbury library. We have known about music at the school right the way through our almost 40 years in Sudbury, so in that sense Saturday’s event was no surprise. In this day and age, however, it is simply glorious to see children performing with their school like this.
