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.

If you wish your child to have their ears pierced, please ensure it is done at the beginning of the six weeks holiday so they can be taken out for school at the start of the new school year. Children are not permitted to wear earrings for PE sessions or after school sports activities.
