Our Vision and Values

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.



As we aspire to form an ever stronger relationship with Christ, we walk hand in hand with Him, striving for excellence in all we do.

Here, at St Joseph’s, we will:

  • Ensure all are accepted and diversity is celebrated
  • Build a happy, safe school filled with love and pride where children are excited to arrive and learn each day
  • Create and develop a curriculum which encourages children to say, “I can” rather than, “I can’t”
  • Develop a school that leads exciting and innovative education and commits to sharing best practice, inspiring others
  • Foster a love of learning to ensure all children are given the opportunity to achieve their full potential
  • Recognise the importance of working as part of both our local community and our global faith community in order to encourage our young people to show compassion, empathy and forgiveness to all
  • Nurture each and every child to enable them to leave St Joseph’s feeling confident in themselves, resilient and ready to take on the world

This vision is built on the firm belief that God continually guides us to be the best that we can be.



 The values that underpin our school community are:


  • Love
  • Respect
  • Hope
  • Faith
  • Justice
  • Aspiration
  • Truth



We strive to create confident, lifelong learners equipped to meet the challenges of a changing future.


We teach the importance of moral values, fairness and forgiveness.


We enjoy sharing success by celebrating every achievement, however small.


We have a strong, positive belief that our school community can make a difference to our world at local, national and global levels.
