8th September 2017 Dear Parents and Carers, We have had a good start to the new academic year. We are so pleased you have all returned safe and sound. Thank you for making the children look so wonderful in their uniform and, despite the roadworks on Wednesday, getting them here on time. How they have grown over the holidays! May we say a big welcome to all our new children and parents/carers that have joined our St Joseph’s family. We will endeavour to support you all through your child's education and pray it's as successful a journey as it can be. We had our ‘Back to school Mass’ today for Years 1-6. Our thanks to Father Victor and Father Damian who work tirelessly to support our school and the parish. It is always a special moment when you hear the children's sing for the first time in September. Thank you to our children for lifting our hearts! As we start the year we have reminded the children our behaviour expectations. We have very high standards. The children know that we expect ‘impeccable’ behaviour. They know to: Treat everyone in school with respect Not touch anyone else, hands by your side Follow all instructions first time Be ready to learn in every lesson Not talk when adults are teaching When the bell/whistle goes – ‘freeze’ and listen to the adult on duty Move about the building in a calm, orderly manner These expectations are rooted in our Mission Statement: At St Joseph’s we aim to ensure that every child matters and all children are nurtured and learn without barriers. Our children are raised in the context of a diverse and vibrant Catholic community within the teachings of Jesus Christ and are witnesses to a Christian way of life. At St Joseph’s, we belong to a loving, welcoming, forgiving family that lives in the life of the Gospels. We celebrate that St Joseph’s is a secure, happy school with high expectations; trusted by the community. We embrace honesty, responsibility, respect, equality, tolerance and acceptance. We recognise that children have the ability to grow spiritually, emotionally, physically, intellectually and creatively and so will consequently, achieve their very best in an ambitious, supportive environment. We believe that God is always with us in whatever we do. Take a look at our website if you haven’t done so for a while. The address is: www.stjosephs.southwark.sch.uk…
2017 Speakers Schools Council Awards

2017 Speakers Schools Council Awards

From the The Speaker’s School Council Awards team:-Thank you very much for submitting your school project to the Speaker’s School Council Awards 2017. This year’s Speaker’s School Council Awards has been incredibly successful with the Speaker receiving hundreds of applications! The SSCA team were thrilled to see such a huge number of school councils involved in such inspiring and worthwhile activities and, in particular, were incredibly impressed by the commitment and passion with which the school councillors dedicated themselves to their amazing projects. There was a consistently high standard of applications this year making the judges’ decision very difficult. Unfortunately, on this occasion, your entry has not been selected as one of this year’s winners. We would really like to thank you and your school council for taking part in the competition and taking the time to tell us about all the hard work that has gone into making your project great. To celebrate your students’ achievement please find a digital badge attached. You can show this off on your school website and your school council will also receive a certificate in the post. On behalf of the Speaker of the House of Commons, the Rt. Hon John Bercow and the Speaker’s School Council Awards team we would once more like to thank you and your school councillors for participating in this year’s awards. We wish you every success with your future projects and look forward to hearing about them in next year’s competition. Kind regards The Speaker’s School Council Awards team

Dear Parents and Carers, It is with great delight that I am able to report some very good results for our KS2 SATS. The children have done well and we are so proud of them. My special thanks go to all the staff who have contributed to this success and also to you the parents who have ensured the children were equipped and ready for the tests. There is an increasing amount of pressure put on children to perform and be compared nationally and to find the balance between hard work and well-being is sometimes a challenge for all of us but especially the children. So a big THANK YOU to all of you.

One for ‘Innovation and Collaboration’ and the other for ‘Special Contribution for Service to Southwark Schools’. These awards reflect the work we are doing in our journey towards ‘Outstanding’. It is important for us to be outward looking and to share expertise across schools so we can all be the best we can be. I would like to give a big cheer to all the staff at St Joseph’s whose great team work has made this happen! Art Gallery We had a fantastic art exhibition last Wednesday! The children are multi- talented. Thank you to everyone involved. Next Academic Year There are a few changes taking place next year and there are some staff who are leaving us. We wish them all the very best of luck for the future: Ms Jameson will be taking on the Headship of a school in Croydon. Mrs Bell (Blue Class) is retiring. Julie Luton who has been with us as a cleaner and in the kitchen for 33 years will be retiring. Ms Ferman (Yr 2) is going to a new school . Ms Hagyard (Music) is going to a new school.

Friday 16th June 2017 Dear Parents and Carers, Over the past two weeks we have been working hard across the curriculum. Year 6 have been planning and rehearsing for their end of year performance, Yr 4&5 have been continuing to work hard across all subjects, Yr 3 have been doing some special work with the London Philharmonic Orchestra for their performance on the July 3rd, Yr 2 have completed their SATs and will be working on their leavers’ production, Yr 1 have completed the Phonics Screening Check and Reception are learning all about Superheroes! Heatwave alert The London Borough of Southwark has issued a Heatwave alert for the weekend and Monday. As the warmer weather draws in, can I remind you that we need to be very careful that the children do not overheat. Could you please make sure they are provided with a bottle of water, a sun hat and that you administer sun screen. Some children can have up to 4 layers on – (vest, t-shirt, polo shirt and sweatshirt) please make sure they are not too over dressed for the heat. First Holy Communion This is a very special time for our Year 3 children will be making their First Holy Communion on Saturday 24th June and Saturday 1st July. All of their photos are in Sacred Heart Church and I am sure you will hold them all in your thoughts and prayers. We pray for the strength of constant and life-long faith that will protect and guide them through their future years. Helping the School Some parents/carers have asked how they can contribute to the school in view of the funding cuts. We appreciate that family life is very costly and there will be things that we are no longer able to afford as a school. If anyone does wish to contribute financially you can always do so via the school office – See Mr Gibb. If you would like to give of your time then please contact the school office. We always need people to listen to children read but as you can appreciate this needs to be consistent and regular and you will be subject to DBS clearance. Another way in which you can contribute is to buy books for our Reading Spine. The office will have a list of suggested books. Reports End of Year Reports will be sent out on Thursday 13th…

Newsletter - Friday 26th May

Dear Parents and Carers, We have had a fast paced half term. It feels like we have only just come back from Easter and yet, here we are, at the end of another 6 weeks. There are many changes afoot and we don’t quite know what they will be until after the General Election on June 8th. If all remains equal, we know that schools are going to be subject to more funding cuts and we will have to make ends meet so, inevitably, that will impact on the school and families. As a consequence of these cuts we cannot afford to go to the seaside this year. The coaches are far too expensive and the cost, heavily subsidised by the school, outweighs the time spent travelling there and back and this is regrettable. The children will be going on a class outing instead. The Key Stage 2 SATs are over and Yr 6 are preparing for visits to secondary schools. Meanwhile, Y2 children are currently taking their SATs tests and Yr 1 will be doing their Phonics Screening Check in the week beginning Monday 12th June. We also want to ensure that as many of our Reception children achieve a ‘Good Level of Development’ so we can increase the % of achievement for the third year running. It is essential that you help your child with any work they bring home. Reading regularly at home, is the one thing that will ensure your children succeed in the education system. If they read well and understand what they are reading, they will be successful in the tests and across the curriculum. Your contribution to this is at the heart of this success. I know we are all busy but please find time in your routine to read with or listen to your children read every day and ask them questions about the stories they are reading. Please sign the reading diary daily.
