Our mission statement is 'We value all in the name of Jesus the Christ' from this we take all of our inspiration. We work hard to ensure that all of our staff and pupils understand the meaning behind our mission statement.
We are strongly committed to building and strengthening the Catholic ethos of the school. Underlying our teaching and our relationships are the Gospel Values of Unity, Respect, Joy, Love and Courage. Our aim, within this context, is that all members of our community show respect and care for one another and extend their concern to the needy by prayer and charitable service. We place a great emphasis on home, school and parish links.
We strive to build on the foundations of faith started from the home and seek to provide an environment where beliefs and values of the Catholic faith are taught, explained, developed and nurtured. Our School is a place where each child believes in their own potential, in an environment where they can succeed and achieve.
Our pupils are our greatest asset.
We are very proud of our children and their achievements. We help them to grow in their faith in a supportive Catholic environment. Through carefully planned lessons, daily prayer, Mass and reflection and enrichment opportunities we help to prepare them for transition to secondary school as confident, responsible, caring young people.
The staff are our greatest resource
We have an experienced, talented and dedicated staff at St. Joseph’s who work together to support the school’s Catholic ethos and ensure that each pupil reach their full potential.
Our excellent standards reflect the children’s positive attitudes to learning, consistent good teaching and the high level of pastoral support we provide. All of which are strengths of the school. The combined strength of our staff ensures that the ethos and values of our mission statement provide all pupils with high quality teaching and learning within a supportive environment.
High Standards of Pastoral Care
Our staff go the extra mile
We are proud to provide a positive and caring environment for our pupils where they can achieve, feel safe and be happy.
Pupil Behaviour and Presentation
Our children are great ambassadors for the school
We understand that this can only be achieved in an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect. Our success depends on the close working partnership and commitment of parents, staff, governors and the parish.
Parents are encouraged to become fully involved in the education of their child. The Home School Agreement symbolises our approach to parents and the school working together for the benefit of the child.
Our staff team works to ensure that any problems are dealt with swiftly and efficiently. If it is necessary, we will inform parents or carers and seek their support. All our pupils wear full school uniform. High standards of appearance reinforce our values of self-respect and pride in being a pupil of St. Joseph's
