COVID-19 Reporting to School

We need to make sure you can contact us at any point (including evenings and weekends) if you, your child or someone in your house gets a positive test result for COVID-19.

Therefore, we have created an email address for you to contact us should you get a positive test result for anyone in your household. The email address is covid@stjprimary.co.uk

This email address will be permanently monitored so we can take the appropriate action should we have a positive case in our school community. Sadly, we also have to make you aware that there have been cases nationally where parents have claimed that they or their child has tested positive when this has NOT been the case. Public Health England has a record of all positive tests and schools are able to check if the case in their school is legitimate.

If you email the address above, it is for a positive test only and not for a suspected case or for symptoms.

The Parliamentary Review online magazine, co-chaired by Lords Blunkett and Pickles, interviewed the Headteacher about our development as a school with such a good reputation.  After some discussion, he was asked to contribute to an article reflecting on our success.  We are glad to provide you with a link to the article, which highlights the work of all in bringing about such great progress in St Joseph’s.  Please share with family and friends, and especially with those looking for a school for their child.  


In July, Mr Saunders was interviewed for the Leaders Council of Great Britain.  Listen to the podcast via the link below:
