Headteacher's Welcome

At St. Joachim’s Catholic Primary School we strive to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. Our school ethos reflects our vision of a loving and caring environment, where all children are inspired and encouraged to reach their full potential both spiritually and academically.

We aim to deliver an exciting and engaging curriculum for all; doing this through not only following national expectations, but promoting all subjects through specialised projects, and providing children with memorable experiences. We hope, through this website, that you are provided with an insight into school life at St. Joachim’s and share in our many successes and achievements.

Best Wishes,

Mr James Allen
Headteacher
