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.

Remembering Departed Loved Ones - School Memory Tree

Mrs McLaughlin (Headteacher) on: Class News

The month of November is traditionally a month to remember our loved ones who are no longer with us.  In school we have a memory tree.  Each Key Stage 2 child will bring home a tag to write down the names of people they would like to remember this month.  

The month of November is traditionally a month to remember our loved ones who are no longer with us.  In school we have a memory tree.  Each Key Stage 2 child will bring home a tag to write down the names of people they would like to remember this month.  When returned to school we will hang them on our tree.

When returned to school we will put them on our tree.

Thank you and congratulations to the children who have stood for school council elections this year. The standard of the speeches has been really high and all teaching staff have been really impressed with quality, confidence and independence shown. Voting by the children took place on Thursday with the children further developing their understanding of democracy in the process.
