St Joseph's Catholic Voluntary Academy



Welcome to St Joseph’s. My name is Andrea Leslie and I am the Head Teacher. Let me tell you a little about our school. Then please have a look at other pages to find out even more about our incredible school.

We are on the eastern edge of Leicester and our pupils come from a wide area within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Nottingham. We take pupils aged 3 to 11. There are about 300 pupils on the roll including 30 who attend the Foundation Stage full or part time.

The school is not only a place of learning, but also a Christian community, sharing a faith, united in mutual respect and a sense of belonging. It is a place where God is experienced as a reality and where Christ’s Gospel comes to life.

We aim to provide an education in which each aspect of the child’s unique personality can be developed. We aim, not merely to attain the best standards possible within the National Curriculum, but to provide a happy, stable atmosphere in which every child can become the best that they can be.

Learning is an adventure and it is important that children should learn to think for themselves. So much has been discovered in recent years about how children learn. As a result many things have changed since our school days.

Whether you are visiting our website or decide to come and see the school itself, I would like to welcome you into the life of St. Joseph’s School and Parish.
