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.

Welcome Back!

Mrs McLaughlin (Headteacher) on: Class News

Welcome back to School!

It was a pleasure to see all the children returning to school on Wednesday morning looking so smart and ready to work!

Also welcome back to Mrs Machen who is returning from maternity leave and to Miss Barker who is teaching with Mrs Janvier in Year 6. We also welcome Miss Whelan who will be working in Year 2 this year. We hope that they will be very happy working at Our Lady and St. Joseph’s.

Foundation Stage parents will now know that the two Foundation Stage classes have swapped classrooms to allow Foundation Stage 2, which always has 30 children, to have the larger classroom.
