Headteacher's Welcome


A very warm welcome to St Joseph's RC Primary School. We are a very caring Roman Catholic school with exceptionally high academic standards. The school is situated in the heart of the beautiful Ribble Valley and is the oldest and the smallest Jesuit school in the country. In our latest, outstanding OFSTED report, the inspector noted, 'this is an outstanding school. Although it is very small, it has a big heart. It welcomes pupils from all backgrounds but promotes strong Catholic values. Pupils acquire a love of learning, excellent levels of personal development and outstanding levels of academic achievement.' St Joseph's is proud to be an Eco Green Flag school and a Fairtrade school.

Sunflowers for Nepal competition


Lucy did an amazing job in selling over 1000 sunflower seeds last term, raising a total of £173 for Nepal's earthquake victims. The winners for the tallest sunflowers received their prizes from Lucy in Friday's assembly. The winners were Georgia and Jeannie with a sunflower which grew 249 cm tall, and runners up were Lyla and Esther with a sunflower which grew 194 cm tall. Well done to Lucy for her fundraising idea, and to all those who entered the competition and supported this worthy cause.
