It is my great pleasure to welcome you to St Joseph’s Catholic Academy situated on the Eastern edge of Leicester. We are a 1.5 form entry school with a nursery class and our pupils come from a wide area within the Catholic Diocese of Nottingham. 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.
Within the friendly-family atmosphere of the school community we promote Christian values of love, respect, and forgiveness, as revealed to us through the life of Jesus Christ. Our mission statement – ‘with God’s guidance, we love, learn, respect and forgive’– captures our desire to follow the example of Christ in welcoming, nurturing and developing each individual as a unique and precious gift, created in the image of God. We recognise the dignity of every individual and seek to celebrate the ambitions and talents of all.
Staff and governors acknowledge parents/carers to be the first and foremost educators of their children and we aim to work in partnership with them to enable each child to thrive and flourish. Staff are committed to doing our very best to support each pupil to grow spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically.
