Our Mission Statement
St. Joseph’s family
With love and faith in Jesus,
To become the people
God calls us to be.
'We Work, We Care, We Pray, We Share'
‘St. Joseph’s family learn together….’
St. Joseph's vision for the children, is that they leave St. Joseph’s having achieved their full potential in all areas and have the necessary skills and knowledge to flourish to their next phase of education and life. As children learn and grow, we want them experience a deep sense of joy in everyday life and to feel happy, confident and full-filled, having enjoyed an enriching curriculum at St. Joseph’s. We want us to approach our curriculum with enthusiasmand a thirst for knowledge. Through a broad, diverse curriculum and for children to develop new interests and passions.
Children need a world class education which enables them to so that they may have a transformational impact upon society. We want children to receive an exceptional curriculum by inspirational, knowledgeable teachers who deliver academic excellence for all. We want our curriculum to enable long-term learning.
‘With love and faith in Jesus….’
Children at St. Joseph’s experience faith in action everyday as it underpins all aspects of school life and staff and the community work hard to fulfil their Catholic mission; we want children to develop and be more in in their spiritual self and understand how to nurture and grow in faith. We want our children to become the people God wants them to be.
‘To become the people God Calls us to be…’
At St. Joseph's, we want children to be ‘fired up’ about building God's Kingdom here on Earth, enacting positive change across all spheres of society. God’s Kingdom is one of peace, love, joy, unity, equality, respect, forgiveness and compassion. It is a Kingdom where all can flourish, finding belonging, purpose and fulfilment. It is a Kingdom where we receive God’s love and the promise of ‘life in all its fullness’ through Jesus. This is all about transforming society.
We want our children to leave St. Joseph’s with the knowledge, skills and desires to contribute to a fairer and more sustainable world - To help build God’s Kingdom. We want them to be successful global learners: As Pope Francis said,
'We are a single family living in a common home. We have a responsibility as stewards of God’s earth.’
how modern-day society has been shaped and the impact they can have in the future. We want our children to be the ‘People God wants Us to Be’. Our curriculum has been carefully designed in a way as to allow this. Our Golden Threads (Diagonal Links) run through our curriculum to help children to build God’s Kingdom here on earth and to demonstrate the Gospel Values which Jesus taught us.
