Plans for Pupils Whose Parents are Key Workers and Can Not Provide Child Care During The Coronavirus Crisis
Corona Virus Scams
FREE SCHOOL MEALS SCAM WARNING
We have been notified of scams surrounding Free School Meals that have been circulating on social media. We have not received any reports of scams in Knowsley, but at this current challenging time, we would urge everyone to apply caution. With regards to Free School Meals, as per the Government guidance, we are in the process of arranging a voucher scheme which will not involve transferring money or requesting bank account details. Residents are reminded to not give any personal or financial information to someone you do not know, however plausible they may sound.
Genuine organisations would not telephone you to ask for such information. If you receive a letter, email or phone call that you suspect to be bogus, contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 0808 223 1133 for advice. Don’t feel pressured to reveal any information.

Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School
Our Mission Statement
Everyone Together with Jesus
Inspired by Jesus, we grow closer to God through prayer and worship. We always do our best and show respect, love and care for everyone.
- To be inspired by Jesus.
- To enable all members of the school family to reach their full potential
- To work in partnership with parents, parish, local and wider community
We hope that your time with us will be happy and rewarding. At St. Joseph’s we take great pride in creating a warm welcoming school. Whilst your child is with us, we shall do everything we can to help him or her develop his or her potential and ensure that the school is a happy and stimulating place.
St. Joseph’s was judged to be outstanding in all areas during two recent inspections. The school is situated in an excellent position, close to the Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park. This offers opportunities for our pupils to take part in a variety of sporting activities including swimming and BMX riding. Our pupils have also attended a range of cultural activities including pantomimes, plays and musical performances.
If you would like to visit and see at first hand all that the school has to offer please contact us and make an appointment.
You can contact the school via email using firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 0151 477 8990.
Please ask for Mrs D. Ely.
If you require a paper copy of any of the information on our school website, then please contact us and we can provide this free of charge.
I can’t do it….yet !
At St Joseph’s we encourage children to develop a mind- set that is open to challenge and not afraid of failure.
We reward our children for working hard and behaving well. We also encourage and reward children who show they can:
- Be curious
- Be independent
- Be imaginative
- Make links
- Have a go
- Be proud
- Be decisive
Ultimately, we are encouraging children not to think “I can’t do it” when they come across something that is difficult, but “I can’t do it yet !”
With support from our staff, parents, families and the children themselves to develop the above characteristics, we will be preparing our pupils for success.
If you would like any further information, or tips for how you can help to develop these characteristics in your child, please speak to their class teacher.
