Mission Statement

At St Joseph’s each member of our family is valued and respected for who they are. Like St Joseph, we aim to nurture and support the personal growth of each individual in an atmosphere of love and trust rooted in Christ and the Gospels.

Overall Aim:

Each child will be provided with an education placed in a Christian setting to prepare him/her to be a witness in the wider world; thus the curriculum to be followed will enable each child to acquire skills, attitudes and values that will foster an increasing love and understanding of the Catholic faith.

Specific Aims: 

  • To teach the children to have an awareness that, as children of God they too must love one another, irrespective of the ethnicity, gender or ability - physical or intellectual - of the companions.
  • To provide a curriculum in which each strand refers intrinsically to the Overall Aim, but which also allows for the differentiation which exists between children and their varying stages of development.
  • To realise each child's own individual potential within a stimulating learning environment, ensuring that there are opportunities to feel successful.
  • To bring together all who are concerned with the children's social, moral and spiritual development through a close relationship between the school, the parents and the Church.
