At St Joseph's it is our mission to provide a safe, caring and welcoming Catholic community. Our patron saint, St Joseph, was known as the silent saint, his humility inspires our school community everyday to show patience, love and acceptance to all. We believe in nurturing the whole child through Christian values and virtues. It is our mission to instil a love of learning, love of others and of self. We work together as a school community to develop our God given gifts and become the best version of ourselves. 

Our aims are:

  • To provide a stimulating, holistic curriculum which enables and enriches learning, making education exciting and enjoyable.
  • To follow in the footsteps of St Joseph by caring for one another. We promote a lifestyle which emphasises the importance of caring for physical and emotional well being.  
  • To be a worshipping community which enriches the spiritual life of the individual, developing a sense of awe at the wonder of God's creation and his unconditional love.
  • For each member of the community to grow in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ allowing them to make informed moral decisions based on Gospel values.
  • To be an inspirational school where expectations challenge, and encourage each child to achieve the highest standards they can.
  • Rooted in the values of our patron saint, St Joseph to support parents in their role as the first educators of their children.
  • To be known to parents and children as a welcoming and safe place.
    To ensure that the life and curriculum of the school celebrates and respects the differing ethnic, social, spiritual and cultural backgrounds present in the school and society.
  • Celebrate our differences
  • As St Joseph taught us, to have an immovable belief in others. To develop self esteem through making a positive contribution to family life and the lives of the school, parish, local and wider global community.
  • To expect high standards of behaviour, courtesy and respect engendering a spirit of co-operation, kindness and compassion within the school community.
