ABOUT US

Visions and values

We believe that St. Joseph's exists to be a vibrant, worshipping and welcoming community – a living example of our faith.

 

We all have an important role to play in building our community. This is reflected in how we learn, laugh, play and worship together, showing care, respect, support and forgiveness and for each other as we grow and learn.

 

On our journey together, we are a sign of God’s presence to each person we meet.

Therefore, each day we do our very best in our search for to be role models for all and act justly in all that we do.

 

As a strong, supportive community, we reach out to others and recognise our responsibility to make this a better and fair world for all.  

 

School Aims

 

In order to fulfil the spirit of our mission, we aim to:

  1. Consciously promote a sense of belonging to a community, which is founded in the tradition of the early Church and so grounded in sharing ‘word, worship, witness and welfare’;​

  2. Provide a broad, balanced and rigorous curriculum, delivered in a way, which promotes active questioning, enquiry, enjoyment and reflection, with high expectations of staff, pupils and parents in all areas and aspects:

  3. Establish a sense of order, respect, tolerance, good manners and self-discipline as a reflection of our understanding that we meet God in others:

  4. Create an environment where each person, regardless of race, religion, colour, sex, age, language, ability, job, background or family circumstance, feels valued and encouraged to develop a sense of worth, dignity, security and belonging:

  5. Involve parents and others in the wider community in the education of our children and the building of our Christian community:

  6. Provide experiences where children can recognise God in their lives appropriate to their stage of development, where they can respond and know they have a personal relationship with God and where they feel at ease as confident ambassadors of our faith:

  7. Prepare the children for a world where they will have the courage and vision to stand up for what is right and to be a voice for the poor or marginalised:

  8. Celebrate and laugh wherever possible! To continually review our practice, to learn from problems or setbacks, and to look forward with hope and confidence in the future, trusting in the support of St Joseph.

We believe that we achieve success by:

  • Celebrating differences yet also the aspects that bind us together through whole school scheme of work

  • Promoting God's love for us all during all lessons and collective worship

  • Providing a happy nurturing environment with outstanding behaviour

  • A Holistic approach to assessing individual needs of each child with a challenging approach

  • Working within the community with families & parish – international evening, support groups, mass, reconciliation & prayer services

  • Local and international visits

  • Through positive role modelling encouraging children to reach their full potential academically, spiritually, emotionally & physically
