Our school day begins at 8.50 am and ends at 3.30pm, this equates to 38 hours and 20 minutes in school.

At St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, we firmly believe that regular attendance is vitally important to ensure the best possible outcomes for all of our children. Regular attendance means your child can make the most of their education, thus improving their chances in adult life.  Being in school will also help your child’s social skills, such as making and keeping friendships.  A regular and punctual attendance pattern will help your child when they enter the world of work.

To ensure your child gets the best possible start to their education, we ask that you support regular school attendance and punctuality.
