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. 


We have no vacancies at present.

KS2 Musicians showcase all their hard work!

Mrs McLaughlin (Headteacher) on: Class News

This afternoon children in Key Stage 2 gave a special music performance showcasing what they have learnt this year on their violins. Year 3 performed pieces that they had recently played at Big String and some Year 6 children performed solo assembles. It was great to see how much the children enjoyed showcasing their musical talents to their families, well done to everyone involved.

Dinner Money Payments to Reach School Office on Monday Morning30Nov2015

@ School Office

It would be helpful if you could support the office staff by ensuring that on Monday morning your child’s dinner money is sent in a named envelope and given to your child to hand in to their teacher. Any change will be sent back to your child on the same day. Please avoid calling into the office to pay dinner/trip money so that anything that needs immediate attention can be dealt with. The current cost of a school dinner is £2 per day (£10 for the week).
