St Joseph's School - A Catholic Voluntary Academy

Friends of St Joseph's 


We are the fundraising team. Whether you are a parent, guardian, grandparent or friend of a child at St Joseph's, you too are a Friend of St Joseph's. Together we can make a difference by raising money for those extras that the school budget may struggle to pay for.

Keep an eye on this page as it will always be up to date with what we are doing, what we have done and how much we have raised after each event.


If you can help out at any event or have any fundraising ideas please contact the school office at any time!

Thank you


Our fundraising total for the year 2021/2022 was:


Thank you so much!


We have been raising money to create a wonderful all-year-round reading area in front of the school hall. The artificial grass has now been laid and the new colourful recycled, weatherproof seating is being enjoyed by the children.

We need to put a low fence around the area to stop children running across it and so we will be raising money for that this year in addition to helping with other projects in school.

It is our intention to help parents with paying for school trips this year by donating the money raised from all cake sales (around £200 per sale). This can reduce the cost per child by around £7.
