Vision & Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement was rewritten in March 2023. It encompasses everyone involved in our school - children, parents, staff and governors.

  • promote the partnership of home, school, church and community;
  • pray together, grow in faith and live the Gospel values;
  • respect and care for everyone and everything around us;
  • value each child as an individual;
  • encourage our pupils to develop active and creative minds;
  • promote self-esteem and confidence;
  • set high standards of learning;
  • celebrate the achievements of each and every child.

St Joseph's is a Catholic School, in which each individual is valued, cherished and nurtured, as they grow in the knowledge and love of Christ.

In partnership with parents and the whole community, our purpose is to provide a high standard of education, giving the maximum opportunity to recognise each person’s talents and enable them to fulfil their true potential.
