Latest News Updates

23rd October 2020
A HEART-FILLED THANK YOU!


I would like to thank all of the parents and carers for your support and understanding during this first half term back at school.
 
During our first 8 weeks back we have faced many challenges, experienced new situations and had several changes and updates. At St Joseph's, we have continued to work together more than ever to provide our children with the education they deserve and need. The children have all made us incredibly proud, adapting to the new routines and expectations in school, coming back after a long period off with many uncertainties and continuing to smile each and every single day.
 
We are still in an unknown period with changes to tier lockdowns but together we will support each other as a community to stay strong and positive and most importantly safe.
 
I wish you all a restful half term and look forward to welcoming you back for the next half term on Tuesday 3rd November.
 
God bless you all.
 
Miss Marsden

FREE SCHOOL MEAL VOUCHERS - 23rd October 2020
 
MPs have voted against extending free school meal vouchers into the October half term holiday however the Chief Executive and Major of Doncaster Council have taken the urgent decision to fund schools to provide vouchers.
 
Therefore, children registered for free school meals will receive a Wonde voucher for 1 week to either the parent's email address as an email or to their phone as a text message.
 
Please inform the school office if you do not receive your voucher. These are being organised today so they should be sent out over the weekend.

CORONAVIRUS CONFUSION - Wednesday 7th October 2020
 
Many of us are feeling unsure about all of the different rules and for how long to self-isolate for in given situations with the ever changing guidance and developments from the Government. Please click here to view a parent guide which clearly explains when to keep your child off school and for how long for. I hope you find this useful.

CHANGE OF DATE - Monday 5th October 2020
 
Parents evening forms will now be sent home on Wednesday 14th October rather than Wednesday 7th October. With wellbeing week and lots of other activities, some teachers are still finalising all of their assessments for the class so that they can share with you their findings.

MICROSOFT TEAMS - Thursday 1st October 2020
 
Tomorrow your child (Reception to Year 6) should be bringing home a letter which contains your child's personal email address and password.
 
The school has invested in Microsoft Teams as a learning platform for children who need to self-isolate.
 
I have put together a parent guide (click here) for you to follow so that you can become familiar with the software and support your child to access it at home if needed.

Important - Friday 25th September 2020

Welcome to ST JOSEPH'S SCHOOL Website 

Hello and welcome to the St Joseph’s website. On behalf of everyone at our wonderful school, I would like to welcome you to our website where you will find information about upcoming events, class news, celebrations and lots more.

St Joseph’s school is a very special place, where children and adults unite together, learning in the light of Christ. The gospel values are central to everything we do, and we are very proud of the special ethos created in school. We believe that each individual should be free to grow in a loving and merciful school community, rooted in determination, courage and hard work. By the grace of God each person can be nurtured to fulfil their purpose.

St Joseph's is a single form entry school. We are part of the Hallam Schools' Partnership Academy Trust (HSPAT). Being part of the MAT provides us with a range of opportunities for collaboration and support. We also have a wonderful spacious nursery, where children can begin their time with us the term after their third birthday. We have high expectations of all members of our school community and we aim to foster a love of learning that children will take to secondary school and through to adult life.

 

If you have any questions about our school, please use the contact us link. Visits to our school are very warmly welcomed, please get in touch to arrange an appointment. 

 

With every good wish,

Natalie Kelly

Headteacher

Thank you for visiting our new website. Please leave a comment on our website to let us know what you think of our new website and app. Thank you to everyone who has commented already.
