|Welcome to St. Joseph's|
Welcome to our school website which will give you an introduction to the life of our happy and successful Catholic school.
St Joseph’s school is committed to the formation of character and the acquisition of a value system that will enable young people to live life to the full. These values centre on developing a responsible character. Our aim is to help our young people develop the ability to live within a community. We want them to learn that compassion, justice and love are the keys to a life well lived. St Joseph’s is a vibrant and dynamic school with high expectations and great ambitions for every one of our pupils.
We want everyone in our community to feel safe and happy during their time at St Joseph’s. We aim to help everyone in our school community to grow in faith and to make the most of their innate ability. The culture and ethos of the school is one where we all have high expectations of each other. Each child is unique, they are loved and valued. They deserve the best and that is what we aim to give them. They are our greatest ambassadors and they are supported by a team of staff united in encouraging, motivating and challenging each one of them to be the best they can be.
