Love Jesus Love Learning Love Life
St Joseph’s Mission statement
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.
Make learning fun
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. Keep us healthy and happy
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.
Make choices that Jesus would
To be an inspirational school where expectations challenge, and encourage each child to achieve the highest standards they can.
Push us to do our best
Rooted in the values of our patron saint, St Joseph to support parents in their role as the first educators of their children.
Help the people who look after us at home
To be known to parents and children as a welcoming and safe place.
Make us feel comfortable and safe
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.
Feel good about helping others
To expect high standards of behaviour, courtesy and respect engendering a spirit of co-operation, kindness and compassion within the school community.
Treat each other well
The pupils in Class 5 read and discussed our mission statement in great depth. They interpreted each aim in their own language and these interpretations have now been added to the mission statement in blue.
