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.
