Our school is the parish school for St Joseph's Wath. Our Parish Priest is Fr Evangelist. Click here for information on mass times.
"This is a warm and welcoming community where everyone is valued and respected. Leaders and managers work very effectively to maintain and develop the Catholic life of the school. Members of the community, who are not Catholics, appreciate the way their beliefs are recognised, valued, shared and celebrated. The strong Catholic ethos of the school creates a happy atmosphere and positive learning environment where children feel loved and secure and in which they flourish. Children participate in and contribute to a variety of high quality liturgies which are often shared with families and parishioners." RE Inspection October 2010
As a voluntary aided Catholic School, Religious Education and prayer are integral to our school community. Our faith permeates all aspects of school life. We believe that links between home, school and parish are vital to provide a broad and balanced education for all our children.
Our Parish Priest regularly celebrates Mass in school. Collective worship takes place daily, either as whole school or key stage assemblies or in class or as individual prayers.
At Our Lady and St. Joseph’s we follow the ‘Come and See’ RE syllabus but take advantage of opportunities to teach RE through cross-curricular activities. Therefore our pupils are taught RE through art, dance, drama, music, ICT and literacy.
