Welcome to St Joseph The Worker

Headteacher's Welcome

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

Our school is very much a team built on the values of the Gospel. The staff and governors work hard with all the families to make sure that every child has the best school experience and the opportunity to grow to their full academic, personal and spiritual potential through a broad, challenging and exciting curriculum.

I am proud to say that St Joseph the Worker is a good school. Our strong partnership with the Parish puts us at the heart of the Catholic community which we serve.

If you have any questions or comments please come in to see me. I am always happy to listen and look forward to welcoming you into our school.

With best wishes,

Dawn Ridyard - Headteacher BA (Hons) PGCE NPQH
