St Joseph's Catholic Primary Academy

We are Part of God's family; A unique gift. Faithful to God, United we excel.

We are proud to work with all the Catholic schools across our two local authority areas, particularly as the Trust grows and benefits from the expertise and knowledge that other schools joining in the future will bring.

Policies

Behaviour Policy

As part of the caring ethos of our school we provide a supportive framework for children as they develop virtues to lead them into adulthood. 

Positive expectations are at the root of our system. Clear guidelines supported by praise, encouragement and rewards enable our pupils to excel. Pupils are taught what constitutes unacceptable behaviour and know that there will be consequences, thus a graded system of sanctions forms part of our policy. 

Feel free to read our Behaviour Policy.
