Overall effectiveness Good

"Pupils make good progress during their time at St Joseph’s, despite many entering the school with knowledge and skills well below those expected for their age. As a result, the majority of pupils achieve well by the time they leave the school and their attainment is in line with their peers nationally."; "Teachers work hard to ensure that lessons interest and engage learners. They make sure that work is matched well to pupils’ needs. They provide a good level of support for pupils who struggle with learning, including disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, or those who speak English as an additional language."; "Teachers do not consistently make good use of other adults in the classroom to ensure that pupils are given the best chances to have their learning moved on at speed."
