Welcome to the website of St. Joseph's Catholic Primary School, Stourbridge.
We are a happy, caring and successful school which is well-respected in the local community. A strong link exists between the School and the Parish of Our Lady and All Saints Church in Stourbridge. We firmly believe in a collaborative partnership between home, school and parish so that together we can support every child to develop and grow to their full potential.
Christ is at the centre of all Catholic education and through the teaching of the Gospel values and Catholic virtues, we aim for the children here at St. Joseph's to develop skills both for living and learning. We will assist parents, as the primary educators, in preparing the children for the next stage in their education and faith journey.
Since October 2014, the School has been part of the St Nicholas Owen Catholic Multi-Academy Company. The School has retained its own identity and, with the support from the other Catholic schools, has continued to grow from strength to strength.
I hope you find this website a useful introduction to the life of St. Joseph's School.

The intended outcome of our education at school is: -
- That students develop lively, enquiring minds, the ability to question and argue rationally and to apply themselves to tasks and physical skills, both on their own and in groups.
- That students acquire knowledge and skills relevant to adult life and employment and the ability to enjoy leisure in a fast changing world.
- That students have a respect for religious and moral values and to develop non-discriminatory attitudes and practice which will enable them to live in harmony with all members of society.
- That students understand, care for and respect the world in which they live and the interdependance of individuals, families, groups, and nations.
- That students appreciate human achievements and aspirations.
- That students are helped to develop moral values and an appreciation of the spiritual dimensions of human experience.
- That students are helped to develop their imagination, sensitivity and creative responses to a wide range of aesthetic experiences.
- That students develop a sense of self-respect, self-discipline, the capacity to enjoy life as independent, self-motivated adults and the willingness to care for others.
