Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to the homepage for St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary and Nursery School, Boughton. A Voluntary Academy part of the Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi-Academy Trust.

Whether you are an existing parent or someone looking for a place at St Joseph’s, I hope you find this website informative.

We currently have 232 children on our roll, aged 3-11 years serving the localities of Ollerton and Boughton and surrounding areas. The school opened in 1963 and has benefited from several refurbishments and extensions with the most recent being 2018 with the creation of a school community room. The school strives to provide modern facilities and a learning environment in which our children can flourish. The school converted to an Academy in July 2015 and is part of the Our Lady Of Lourdes Catholic Multi Academy Trust working with other local Catholic Schools to strive for the best for all our children.

We feel our Mission statement ‘Growing in Love, in the Spirit of Christ, for the benefit of all’ reflects all we stand for as a community. We put the example of Christ at the centre of all we do to help us grow socially, academically, spiritually, morally and physically in our learning and our friendships. We do this for ourselves as well as for the members of the school, parish, local, national and international communities in which we live.

As a result we have happy children with a love of learning who are well mannered and polite. Children respect each other and the world in which they live and they have a good reputation within the local community. The parents of our children share our desire for the best for all our children and recognise the need for a positive, open and mutually respectful partnership between home and school.

We welcome visits from all prospective parents (please telephone 01623860392 to make an appointment) and I look forward to welcoming you to our School Community.
