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.

Y5 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.


Review of the Catholic Life of the School

Mrs McLaughlin (Headteacher) on: Class News

The Diocese recently monitored the Catholic life of the school. The reportconcludes that, “Our Lady and St Joseph’s School should be commended for continuing to build on its success and being so outward-looking and reflective in its practice. As an outstanding Catholic school, it has much to share with other schools within its existing partnerships, and with the diocese as a whole.” This recognition of the achievements of our children and staff is well deserved.


Chritmas Shopping Event

Mrs McLaughlin (Headteacher) on: Class News

The PTA Christmas Shopping Event was a great success last Thursday.  Thank you to everyone who helped organise it and came to socialise and spend their money! We raised £193 altogether.

Dinner Money Payments to Reach School Office on Monday Morning23Jan2017

@ School Office

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.
