Our Faith



Our school is the parish school for St Joseph's Wath. Our Parish Priest is Fr Martin. Click here to view the Parish Website.

Our Lady and St. Joseph’s was judged to be outstanding In our last section 48 inspection (October 2015).  “The mission and ethos of Catholic Education permeates every aspect of school life…The headteacher, subject leader, governors and leadership team have a clear vision in developing the Catholic Life of the school. Inspirational leadership combined with the commitment of all members of the school community in constantly striving to improve provision is having a very positive effect on school improvement.”

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.

Our school supports a number of charities though out the year including Mission Together, the Pope's official children's charity for overseas mission.  Its motto is, “Children helping children.”  It supports projects such as schools, orphanages, street shelters, clinics and feeding programmes run by the Catholic Church in over 1,000 mission dioceses worldwide.  Each year, Mission Together focuses on a particular project in one country; this year, the project is to support children in Sri Lanka.
