St Joseph’s is a Roman Catholic Voluntary Aided primary school for 4 to 11 year olds in Banbury. We aim to help the spiritual and moral growth of all our children as well as their intellectual growth. The spiritual and moral standards of our school are founded on Christian teaching and are respectful of other religions and traditions.
We believe that children benefit the most if there is a partnership of the school, the Roman Catholic Parish of St. Joseph’s and the family. We expect parents to play their part in this partnership and support their child. We welcome both catholic and non-catholic children into our school. We believe that all children are a gift from God and so all our children are treated with respect and dignity. In return we expect all our children and their families to behave with the same high respect for others. All members of our school community are expected to be respectful of the Catholic traditions of the school and participate actively in its life of prayer and worship.
We are a community of learning and we aim to develop your child’s God given talents during his/her time with us. We reward excellence but above all we reward children who give of their best; nothing more will ever be asked of your child. We seek to enable your child to reach his/her highest possible level in academic achievement, sporting and creative skills, personal responsibility and moral behaviour.
I encourage you to pay us a visit at the school. I would be delighted to meet you.
