About our School

St Joseph’s Primary School is situated in King Street, Inverness.  The main building was built in 1943 and an infant extension, kitchen and dining hall were added in 1976.  In 1992 the school underwent a complete refurbishment and since then regular maintenance has kept the school in good order.  In 1998 we added a Nursery class to the school.  

The average roll of the school is 200 with seven single stream classes and the Nursery.  There are 12 teaching staff, three visiting specialist teachers and two full time Support Auxiliaries. Class sizes are kept as small as possible and in the current session the average class size is 27.  Learning support in the school is organised so that, for most of each morning three members of staff are teaching in the infant classes.  In the Primary 1, 2 and 3 this brings the staff to pupil ration to about 1:10.

The school prides itself on its high academic standards.  We aim to provide a challenging curriculum, firmly rooted in the basics.  At every stage pupils are encouraged to strive for excellence.

The school serves the Catholic population of Inverness and beyond.  A transport system, paid for and supported by all our parents, exists to ensure that a bus service is available to most parts of the area.  We aim to promote spiritual and religious formation.  However, about 15% of our pupils are non-Catholic and join us for the academic and Christian aspects of our school.

The school is committed to building real partnerships with parents, who are encouraged to visit the school whenever necessary.  The Head Teacher runs an ‘open-hour’ system every day, between 8.30 am and 9.30 am when parents can phone in or come into the office to discuss an issue, no matter how small.

Catholic Education

Today we live in a largely secular society where the traditional values of honesty, hard work, respect and decency are too often missing.  In St Joseph’s we aim, through our Religious Education programme and through all that we do, to ensure that all of our pupils understand how to behave, how to make the most of their abilities and strengths and to understand the gifts of prayer and faith.  As a result we pride ourselves on providing a small school, family atmosphere in a large town centre school and we are proud of the high standards of academic success and good discipline that we achieve.
