We are part of the Plymouth CAST family of schools. We are a Catholic school welcoming children of all faiths to learn and grow with us. The education and wellbeing of our children is at the heart of everything we do. Our Gospel Values of humility, compassion, kindness, justice, forgiveness, integrity, peace and courage are integral to our whole school community. We inspire all our children to do their best, be their best and have respect for themselves, others and the world we live in. Choosing a school for your child is really important for any parent or carer. If you would like to find out more about our school you are welcome to visit us to meet or wonderful staff and pupils. Please email admin@stjo.uk or phone 01395 264875 to book an appointment. We look forward to seeing you.

Art and Design Technology

Art and Design

As artists, our children will be challenged and inspired to imagine, invent, design and create their own works of art through a wide range of media and techniques.  Fuelled by curiosity, our children develop techniques using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space.  Alongside this, our children will deepen their knowledge of famous artists as well as local artists, who have shaped and contribute to our artistic culture and heritage on a local, national and global scale.


Design Technology

At St Joseph’s our children are empowered to become inquisitive, curious learners.  Within our design and technology curriculum they will become critical thinkers as they explore the impact of Design Technology on everyday life and the wider world.  They will research plan, design, make and evaluate products that solve real life problems within different contexts considering their needs and those of others.


We currently follow the Kapow scheme of work.
