If you have a child born between 1st September 2019 and 31st August 2020, they are eligible to start school in September 2024. We will be holding a ‘stay and play’ session at Joseph’s and St Gregory’s Chester Road Queens Park on Friday 1st December at 1:15pm until 2:15pm to showcase our Early Years Setting. Please spread the word to friends and family members. There is no need to book an appointment, everyone is welcome.
Ofsted said of our Early Years, “Pupils’ positive attitudes to learning start in the early years. Children in Nursery and Reception are happy and enthusiastic learners. Children in Reception are well prepared for Year 1.”
Our telephones are currently not working. If you need to contact the school, please email email@example.com or visit the school site. Thank you for your patience.
It is the greatest pleasure to be the Head Teacher of St Joseph's and St Gregory's Catholic Primary School & Nursery. We strive to give every child the best possible education, in an environment where everyone is loved and valued.
When children join us on their first day, we have a clear plan and goal for each of them. That is very simply that every one of them feel loved, feel included and experience an education that enables them to achieve their God-given potential. Our children are kind, compassionate, loving and empathic. They understand what it means to be part of a community that is rich and diverse. "Pupils at St Joseph's and St Gregory's like coming to school. They feel part of the school's caring community." (Ofsted report October 2023)
Our school is a special place, where people from all walks of life come together, we live harmoniously with one another, and our children are excellent examples of how to live in the wider world.
We believe that all children have the right to an engaging and aspirational education. We have worked hard to develop a curriculum which promotes achievement for all. As noted in our most recent Ofsted Inspection, our 'ambitious new curriculum is markedly improving pupils' achievement.'
We are a welcoming community, whose door is always open, should you wish to come and visit us.

Our brains normalise the extraordinary and call it routine. We often come up for breath having missed the magic around us. Taking a moment to see the extraordinary is a tonic for our apathy and lethargy. #OLICATcommunity #WellbeingWednesday https://t.co/n46bQZhBxm
