Welcome to Reception Class 2020

At St Joseph's we aim to create a warm, happy, secure and inviting learning environment, which will help the children feel comfortable, confident and respectful of themselves and others. We aim to create an environment which will meet the needs of each individual child so that they can build upon their existing knowledge and experiences that you, as parents, have already taught them. 

We will help the chidlren to achieve their full potential in every possible resepct, developing their thinking, their knowledge, their skills and their attitudes to prepare them for life in the every changing world.

Class Teacher - Mrs J Heyes
My name is Mrs Heyes and I am the Reception Class Teacher. I have been at St Joseph’s for 3 wonderful years and I am looking forward to the year ahead. I have been teaching for 16 years, teaching all classes from Nursery to Year 6. I’ve been in Foundation Stage for 7 years and I absolutely love it!  I love all things Disney and when I’m not busy in school I like to go to the theatre to watch musicals or out to the park with Mr Heyes and our 5 year old daughter, Gabriella. 
Teaching Assistants - Mrs M Mapplebeck and Miss M Lynch
