What the school says...
At St Joseph’s we pursue academic excellence while ensuring that our pupils have every opportunity to develop and achieve through a broad and balanced curriculum.
Visitors frequently comment on the calm, welcoming atmosphere. Behaviour is excellent. We have an enviable adult to child ratio so our children feel safe and listened to; no child is left behind in their learning. We know our children well and can offer a personalised programme so that there is no limit to what they can achieve. Our spacious classrooms mean children have lots of room to grow and explore.
Our key words are resilience, perseverance and determination; pupils say that they are challenged. In 2017, our KS2 results were better than ever, with 76% of pupils reaching expected the standard in reading, writing and maths combined, well above the national average of 61%.
“Strong relationships throughout the school ensure that pupils feel secure and valued. Pupils feel comfortable talking to their teachers and do so confidently. This contributes well to their well-being and to their safety. Pupils feel very safe in school and say that they are getting on well with their learning”. Ofsted November 2017 ...Read more

Special Education Needs
Our vision for children at St Joseph's with special educational needs and/or disabilities, is the same as for all children - that they achieve well in their early years and throughout school. In order to do this we aim to remove any barriers to learning through effective child-centered provision. St Joseph's is a smaller than average, one form entry, Catholic primary school in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton. The school serves the parish of St Joseph's and St John the Baptist. Most families live in the local area but some travel from across the city. We have close links with the parish and our local community. We pride ourselves on our inclusive approach and celebrate the diversity of our pupils. As well as providing excellent pastoral care, in a loving and nurturing environment, we plan for a curriculum that is fun, creative and stimulating. Pupils make good progress during their time at St Joseph's. Teachers work hard to ensure that lessons interest and engage learners. They make sure that work is matched well to pupils needs; providing a good level of support for pupils who struggle with learning, including disabled pupils and those with additional needs. Pupils behave well and have positive attitudes to learning.
Interpreting catchment maps
The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
