Mission Statement

As a Catholic School we value the special identity that God’s love has created in each of us.

The Gospel inspired values of trust, honesty, self respect, self discipline and forgiveness are at the heart of our everyday loving and caring for one another.

All our curriculum activity reflects these principles as we search faithfully for excellence.

Together with parents, families, the church and the community, we encourage each individual to develop their God given talents and skills and realise their unique potential.

At Our Lady and St Joseph's we believe that every child is special and has God given talents and skills. 

We provide a Catholic education promoting the academic, physical, spiritual and social development of each child. We aim to teach what each child needs, regardless of their age, sex or ability and to provide a happy, healthy and secure environment for your child to enjoy. We seek to be a community which complements the home and the parish in attempting to live out the values of the Gospel.

We also welcome children of families who are not Catholic but seeking a Christian environment for their child. We would be pleased to have the opportunity to show prospective parents around our school when the atmosphere and ethos can be experienced at first hand. 

We welcome this as an opportunity to explain our aims and to be able to answer any questions that you may have.

The school was awarded Sainsbury’s Games Gold Mark at the end of last year. This is the first time the school has received the highest award possible for sport. It is a reflection of all the work and commitment our pupils and staff show in their extra-curricular activities and PE lessons.

Welcome Back Everyone and Welcome to our New Staff

Mrs McLaughlin (Headteacher) on: Class News

Welcome back to another school year. I hope that you all had a restful summer holiday and enjoyed spending time together as a family. It is lovely to see all the children looking so smart in their new uniforms! The children have settled to their work and classes very quickly this year and we are looking forward to working with you to ensure we can provide the very best education for all the children.

We have been joined by three new members of staff; Miss Dixon in Foundation Stage 2, Miss Johnson in Year 2 and Miss Redhead in Year 5. We hope that they will be very happy during their time at Our Lady and St. Joseph’s. We are also delighted that Mrs Roberts and Mrs Barber are both now well and are back with us.

Helen McLaughlin.


Goodbye Year 6 and God Bless for the Future

Mrs McLaughlin (Headteacher) on: Class News

We have to say good bye to our wonderful Year 6s who are leaving Our Lady and St. Joseph’s to go to secondary school.  Each and every one of them is a credit to their families.  They have all made fantastic progress this year and have achieved really well in their SATs; they celebrated in style at The Bluebell yesterday.  I would like to thank all their families who have supported them so well during their time with us.  In particular, I should like to thank those families, whose association with the school will come to an end next week, for all their support for the school over many years. 

 

We ask God’s blessing for the future for;

Katarzyna Burgiel, Taegan Cooper, Corey Cowdell, Thomas Davies, Sam Eley, Lewis Fereday, Simrah Goni, Izabella Griffiths, Josh Harrison, Liberty Hoyle, Jessica Jackson, Shane Kelly, Miya Lambert, Olivia Lloyd, Sharon Mazhetu, Jamie Murahwa, Jacob Parks Marriott, Sophia Pashley, Aoife Reavy, Madison Savage, Lucas Scott, Maja Sitarz, Olga Sitarz, Caitlyn Smith, Elisha Smith, Chenai Stewart, Brayden Turner, James Waller, Lucy-Mae Waller and Jessica Weekes.

 

Finally, I would like to wish you and your family a relaxing summer holiday.
