'St Joseph's Guardians'
This is our School Council that is elected by the pupils each year. It gives the children the chance to have a voice about issues that affect them and encourages them to work together as part of the school community to find solutions to things that affect all of us.
The name and logo for this group was designed, and voted for by the children of the school and everyone agreed that the winning entry summed up the ethos and passion of the staff and children.
The competition winners were presented with a T-shirt printed with the new logo. The children were delighted with their prize!
We are delighted that St Joseph's Guardians achieved the Eco-Schools Green Flag accreditation in July 2022.
At St Joseph’s Catholic Infant School we encourage the children to consider the gift of God’s Creation and how we need to look after all aspects of our planet.
Energy Week (16th - 20th January)
During Energy Week across the school we focussed on learning about energy and how we can all do our bit to save energy.
The St Joseph's Guardians started the week off with an assembly and everyone worked hard on looking at ways to save energy in school, and reminding others to do this too.

To work towards the Eco-Schools Green Flag accreditation, 'St Joseph's Guardians' discussed important ecological issues together such as:-
Health and Travel
Our School Grounds
How does our school support these issues?
We actively encourage healthy and environmentally friendly travel to school through our travel initiatives such as the Walk Once a Week (WoW) scheme.
