Jubilee celebration - God save the Queen - Well done St. Joseph's! A great end to this half term


The children across the school learnt to sing the national anthem today as part of our jubilee celebrations. I think you'll agree that our Nursery children did a particularly great job! 🤩🇬🇧🎼


Music Mark

St Josephs' has been awarded the Music Mark!


Smiles all round as St Josephs after being becoming a 'Music Mark School' in recognition of a commitment to providing high quality music education for all our children. What a fantastic achievement!


Music Mark Schools are committed to providing a high-quality music education for their school community. 

Schools must show

  • evidence of a willingness to engage in development conversations related to improving music provision
  • recognition of the value of music education as part of a broad and balanced curriculum
  • a strategy for music in place which provides for all children


Music Mark’s members recognise that music has a value in and of itself. The pursuit of learning to sing/play an instrument, learning to compose, learning to listen critically and the myriad of other musical skills are valuable in their own right. This is then demonstrated by:

  • music enabling increased behaviours for learning
  • music boosting children and young people’s social development
  • music fostering team work
  • music building life skills
  • music encouraging creativity and critical engagement
  • music being fun and for everyone


At St Josephs we are so fortunate to work with Rock It Music who deliver outstanding music lessons each week, which the children love!




Key Strings

This October we were really lucky to have had Key Strings Live Musical Education in school for an afternoon of music, fun and learning! Both Key Sage 1 and 2 took part in a Multi-Cultural Journey Through Time.


We had the Tardis at the ready as we journeyed back in time and around the world to explore the effects of time, style and culture upon our modern world of music. On our journey we discovered the very rare Rebec, the earliest form of Violin and we travelled the world to see instruments like the Indian Citar, the Chinese Violin (Erhu), the Banjo and Mandolin. In experiencing music from around the world and back in time we saw a world of music that exists beyond what we may believe to be “Classical” music.


The children all had a wonderful time and were introduced to many new instruments, it was a great success!


One Life Music

At St Joseph's we enjoy combining our faith and worship with music and often join Dan and Emily from One Life Music. This October we were extremely lucky to be able to welcome them to our school for a joyful, prayerful, song filled day finding out more about ‘The God who Speaks’.
