About St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

St Joseph’s is a successful, happy school, with a strong Catholic ethos, which has proudly served the local community for over 150 years. Our core values of ‘Love, Learn, Live’ support our pupils to: understand the love of God and neighbour; fulfil their academic potential, give each pupil the experiences and skills which will enable them to live their lives to the fullest extent as successful, confident and responsible individuals.

Our pupils enjoy a well ordered, safe and respectful environment where each child is valued for who they are. As a small school we know each of our children as individuals and visitors often comment on our friendly family ethos. As a school we are committed to offering an exciting curriculum with a wealth of different experiences including extensive music opportunities, wide ranging clubs and an interesting and varied programme of visits and theme days.

Our teaching staff are dedicated professionals who work tirelessly to support each pupil to do their best in a culture of high expectations. Class teachers are supported by language, music and sports specialist teachers. We are fortunate to have super teaching assistants supporting the learning in each classroom.

Educational standards at St Joseph's are high. Our results in reading (including phonics), writing and mathematics are consistently higher than national levels including the high percentage of children who reach working at 'greater depth'. Our children leave St Joseph's with the grades and aptitude to succeed at the wide variety of secondary schools available in Bexley and Kent.
