***01 February 2023 - School is closed for all pupils due to industrial action***

Welcome to St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School Hendon

St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School is a vibrant and historic part of the neighbourhood of Hendon in North West London. Founded in 1882 initially as a boarding school, the school has survived two World Wars and gone from strength to strength. We work to give our children the best possible education in the fullest sense of the word – academically, spiritually and emotionally.

The gospel principles of loving your neighbour, of compassion and of justice permeate all aspects of our school life. We are a friendly and outward-looking school community, welcoming families from all parts of the world. We are proud of our success in academic exams and achievements on the sports field, and we also have good links with local, national and international charities and organizations.

Please take time to browse our website to find out more about the school and the fantastic activities we are involved in.

    URGENT: Please read
    Please see letter from Dr Lane: Dear Parents and Carers, Notice of School Closure due to Industrial Action: In response to our earlier letter regarding the plans for strike action, we regret to inform you that we have had to take the decision to close the school to all pupils on Wednesday the 1st of February. We recognise and apologise for the inconvenience that this may cause for many parents, but our responsibility is to the safety and wellbeing of pupils which, in light of the limited number of staff available, we would be unable to guarantee. Please ensure that appropriate childcare arrangements are in place for the day of strike action as you will not be able to send your child to school. For those families entitled to free school meals, we will contact you separately to arrange for a packed lunch to be available for collection on the day of the strike. Under the terms of the strike, union guidance prohibits teachers from setting work for pupils – however, there are excellent lessons available on Oak National Academy which can be found here - All subjects by key stage - Oak National Academy (thenational.academy). Please refer to the curriculum leaflet for your class to identify topics to cover. We will keep you up-to-date with any further news. In the event that negotiations between the government and the Education unions see the strikes called off or postponed, the school will be able to open as normal on these dates. Regards, Dr J. Lane

    Free hot food and a warm place to be - Hendon Baptist Church
    Dear Parents/Carers, Please see message below from Lindsay of the Hendon Baptist Church. Hi, my name is Lindsay and I run a warm space at Hendon Baptist Church, Mondays to Thursdays 6-8pm. I am the wife of Pastor Errol Jacobs, senior pastor at the church. We offer free hot food and a dessert in a warm building. In addition, we show a movie each night (mostly Disney, always a U certificate) and there are board games, a pool table and table football. We have toys available for young children. This is all paid for by the church, the service is completely free. I am emailing to ask if you can pass this information on to those in the community who you know might benefit. It could be people who are struggling to stay warm or buy/cook food or it could even be people who are lonely or new to the area who want company. I have attached an image that can be used and the full information is listed below. Please do get in touch with me or the church if you want more information: Winter Warmer Hendon Baptist Church, First Avenue, NW4 2RL Monday-Thursday 6-8pm Free hot food and a warm place to be Contact: 07903 650201 Web: www.hendonbaptistchurch.org.uk Find us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram We are registered as a Barnet Warm space with the council https://www.barnet.gov.uk/directories/warm-spaces?keywords=&sort_by=title&page=0 Kind regards, Lindsay
