St. Joseph's Catholic College

A Welcome from the Executive Principal

Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic College. When speaking to prospective parents I usually start with the question what do we want for our children? Our answer in St Joseph’s is that we want them to be happy and we want them to achieve to their full potential. Our aim is to provide a caring and supportive environment in which each individual can progress academically, spiritually and culturally.

Children's Mental Health Week

Monday 1st February marked the start of the annual ‘Children’s Mental Health Week,’ an annual week-long campaign run by the Department for Education.

As we are living through unprecedented times, the issue of children’s mental health is more relevant than ever. If we can be assistance to any family that is experiencing difficulties, please get in touch with the College Pastoral Team. Even though we are all in lockdown there is a range of resources that we can access at College that may be of help to you.

An additional range of resources are being promoted during ‘Children’s Mental Health Week’ by children’s mental health charity Place2Be, until Sunday 7 February. This year’s theme is “Express Yourself” with the focus on children finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas through creativity. Mentally Healthy Schools have created a toolkit of resources for children, staff and parents to use during Children’s Mental Health Week.

Throughout the week, the Department for Education will be using its social media platforms to share a variety of mental health resources including ‘wellbeing for education return’ and the children and young people’s psychological first aid training which is run by Public Health England. Please contact your child’s Student Manager if you would like to request any help or support for your family.

St. Joseph's Christmas Appeal

We decided to organise a Christmas Collection and felt this year was even more important than most. Covid-19 has affected everyone, and as part of our Chaplaincy pledge, we wanted to make a real difference. With the help of Mrs. Mobey and Mrs. Chivers, we managed to get the word out to all of our fellow students to bring in items for our appeal. We cannot believe the generosity of the college. Toiletries, board games, yummy treats and perfume, books, scrabble, teddy bears and delicious food. Thank you everyone – families within our own community will receive these gifts and they will definitely put a smile on their faces. Thank you and Merry Christmas!
