Our Mission Statement
The community of St. Joseph’s School follows the example of Christ, accepting and respecting everyone, as we learn and grow together, safe in His Love.
The school buildings are spacious and well-maintained. The Juniors and Infants each have their own playground with Reception using their self-contained playground as an ‘outdoor classroom’ throughout the year.
The school has a fully equipped computer suite as well as computers in each classroom, connected to the school’s network system, and two trollies of twenty laptops for independent learning. We can access the Internet via Broadband and have our own web site. All classrooms have access to interactive whiteboards, multi media projectors and a range of technologies to maximise the potential of ICT as a teaching and learning tool.
We have a spacious hall used for assemblies, P.E and school dinners. The hatch is used for hot school dinners, music lessons and lessons outside of the classroom.
We are adjacent to Upminster Parish Church which we use regularly for spiritual activities.
