welcome - reception

A very warm welcome to the 'Outstanding' Early Years Department at St Joseph's School, where our Reception children are provided with the very best start to their school life.

Our experienced, well-qualified, enthusiastic and caring staff, provide a high quality environment offering security and extensive opportunities for all our children to achieve their full potential.

The department comprises of three large interlinked activity rooms with attached cloakroom facilities and access to our own garden for outdoor learning. The atmosphere is bright, colourful, purposeful and welcoming.

Our 'Outstanding' report from Ofsted complimented us highly on our excellent pastoral care and the high quality of our provision. We are also proud that the Early Years has been referred to by the Independent Schools Inspectorate an 'Area of Excellence'.

We are constantly reviewing our practise at St Joseph's and believe that this process and our child centered approach, allows us to maintain our reputation as one of the leading Early Years Departments in the South West.

Please feel free to arrange a visit by contacting the Registrar and come and experience the atmosphere at St Joseph's.
