Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to St Joseph's Catholic Primary School website.
In accordance with the Government guidance, the school is open to key worker and priority groups, Years 6, Year 1 and Reception pupils. The school has continued to be open to children of critical workers and vulnerable pupils throughout the 'lockdown'. If you wish for your child to return to school, please contact us during the school week or via our helpline email address. 
If you need to contact us, please email: or telephone the school mobile number: 07377 628 083 in the case of an emergency. Please stay safe.
During this very challenging time, as COVID-19 continues to impact on the lives of us all, please do click on the button below. This is where I am posting messages and updates, communicating to our whole school community.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
We currently have a few places available for our Reception Class starting in September 2020. If you would like to know more information, please contact us on our helpline email address or on our school telephone number.
Many thanks.
Nicola Doherty (Headteacher)


St Joseph's Catholic Primary School is a one-form entry Catholic Primary School in Deptford within the London Borough of Lewisham and the Southwark Archdiocese. It is nestled between the historical St Paul's Church and Deptford Rail Station. It is a well established school that has welcomed families for many generations and is strongly built on the great links between the home, school and parish. 

Our school serves the parish of Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church on Deptford High Street. Although many pupils are parishioners at our local Church, we have many more from neighbouring parishes in our locality.

At St Joseph's, we strive for inclusivity; ensuring that each child grows socially, academically and spiritually. We offer a caring environment for all our children from Reception to Year 6, where each child is nurtured, cherished and valued. We celebrate diversity and encourage all pupils to develop and share their talents and leave us ready for the next stage in their life journey.   We are committed to ensuring that all children grow in confidence, learn to develop their resilience and enjoy the challenge in new learning.

This week, it has been lovely to hear the laughter, and see the smiles, as more children join us at school. We are also still being amazed at the work that our pupils are doing at home. Home learning is continuing to make us proud. #TheLearningProjects #WeAreLewisham
