Reception Admissions


At St. Joseph's Catholic Infants' School, we are very proud of our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision. During their time at our school, your child will develop their personal and social skills as well as their speaking and listening skills; both of which form the basis of future effective learners. There is also a focus on the full EYFS curriculum. Children who attend our Reception make a smooth transition from nursery and progress well throughout the rest of the Key Stage 1 and Key stage 2. 

We host a number of Open Days for Reception in the Autumn term for prospective parents and carers of children who wish to apply to our school. On these Open days, parents and carers are given a tour of our school by pupils to see classes in action and have an opportunity to speak to the executive headteacher, senior leadership staff, and current parents.



Please contact the School Office to register your interest. 0207 703 9264 office@stjosephs.southwark.sch.uk
