Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to St Joseph's Catholic Primary School website.

St Joseph's Catholic Primary School is a one-form entry Catholic Primary School in Deptford within the London Borough of Lewisham and the Southward 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. 

At St Joseph's,  we provide children with a range of experiences to enable them to explore and develop a love of learning. Music, the arts and sport are an important part of our school and we seek to inspire children to try new activities as well as celebrate achievements both in school and in the wider community. 

During their time at St Joseph's, we encourage all children to learn to recognise their talents, be proud of their achievements and progress and know how to be kind and thoughtful towards others.

We are a warm and welcoming school and ask prospective families to click on our ‘Admissions’ tab for further information. 

You are very welcome to telephone the school office and make an appointment to see the school, and meet with me.

Should you require a paper copy of the information displayed on this website, please visit the school office and speak to Mr Bannon or Mrs Cunnew.
