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.

Y3 Gospel Assembly

Mrs McLaughlin (Headteacher) on: Class News

Thank you to Y3 for their assembly about the beatitudes. They gave us lots of examples of how we can achieve happiness such as eating a bag of sweets, playing on a play station or going on holiday but then explained that Jesus can give us lasting happiness.  We all enjoyed their beatitude rap very much!

Y4 Gospel Assembly

Mrs McLaughlin (Headteacher) on: Class News

Y4’s Gospel assembly on Monday was about Jesus calling the disciples. Y4 explained how they have had to give up hobbies and interests in order to do something else.  This helped us all understand how hard it was for the disciples to give up their homes, families, friends and jobs to follow Jesus.

Y5 Gospel Assembly

Mrs McLaughlin (Headteacher) on: Class News

Thank you to Y5 for their assembly about the baptism of Jesus.  They asked us some difficult questions including not just which river was Jesus baptised in but which area! 

Young Voices

Mrs McLaughlin (Headteacher) on: Class News

A massive well done to all the children who took part in Young Voices yesterday at the Sheffield arena. Along with thousands of other children from Yorkshire, they gave us all a fantastic concert that we will all remember.

The cost of a school dinner is £2.05 per day (£10.25 for the week). It would be helpful if you could support the office staff by ensuring that on a 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. Payments made via the school gateway need to be paid in multiples of £2.05.
