Why Choose SASJ?

What Parents Think of Us


I am so thankful for your hard work to teaching my child. Thank you so much.

My child enjoys school and I am happy with her progress.

The school has a lovely family and nurturing atmosphere. All staff are welcoming and friendly.

I have noticed a major improvement since the start of the new year in school.

My daughter is doing amazing in class. I am really happy with her progress and how her teacher is pushing the children to achieve in all areas.

Very pleased with the teaching staff

My son loves the school and comes home buzzing. Really glad we decided on St Anne’s & St Joseph’s.

Just wanted to say thank you for your support for my child.

Support Beyond the Classroom


School Counsellor

We have a dedicated school counsellor who comes into school each week. Sarah Tullet works with children who have been through difficult times at home and helps them work through their feelings and emotions, helping them to cope with whatever life is throwing at them.

Intervention Groups

Each afternoon we have a team of support assistants who work with children throughout the school to help address issues in core subjects - giving focused intervention to help them close any gaps.

Home-School Liaison Officer

We have a dedicated home-school liaison officer - Wendy Schofield.  Wendy works throughout school to support families in their homes, leading meetings, involving additional agencies, signposting parents to extra support, all with the  aim of giving children as stable a home life as possible.  

Before and After School Provision


AJ's is our before and after school provision club. As we have a number of professional families, where parents work longer than the school day and no additional support, we find that some people find the club invaluable to them. 

We don't let the staff work them too hard though - the aim is to allow the children to relax and have fun with their friends after a long day at school!

Community Involvement


Other agencies use the school in the evenings. At present, we have:

Girl Guides & Brownies on a Wednesday evening.

Yoga on a Wednesday evening.
