St. Joseph's Association (SJA)
The St. Joseph's Association (SJA) is the school's parent - teacher association, which is run as a charity. The main aim of the association is as a social group for parents and carers, raising money for the school while having fun!
All parents/carers and school staff are members of the association, with trustees and a committee who make things happen.

This year, we are very proud to say the SJA rallied together to provide weekly collections for our local community foodbank at a time when it proved to be a lifeline to many people.
They also organised many quizzes and competitions during the national lockdown to help to keep the children motivated, and still feel connected whilst having to be apart.
The SJA officially meets once a term to discuss what events we would like to run and to consider requests from school for funding. Everyone is welcome to our meetings - the more the merrier! All our events will be updated on the school calendar, and details of our upcoming events can be found in the section to the right of this page.
The SJA run many different events and fundraisers, from supplying Santa's elves for the KS1 Christmas party to our largest annual fundraiser, the Summer Fayre.
