Our Values, Ethos and Mission Statement

At St Joseph's, we are passionate about ensuring that all children reach their true potential. We endeavour to place Jesus at the heart of all that we do:

'Striving For Excellence, United in Our Faith'.

Our Student Faith Council are currently working on our vales of the month. They have met with Mrs Blyde and they have discussed which values are needed for our pupils. These values are based on the teachings from the Gospel.  They have decided that the four values that we should concentrate on are:

  • Forgiveness
  • Resilience
  • Love
  • Honesty

At St Joseph's, we believe that all pupils can achieve and we ensure that they are all given as many different opportunities to shine and share their talents with one another.

We place great emphasis on self discipline and respect for others. Good behaviour is acknowledged and rewarded through our positive behaviour policy. We have few school rules, but expect that children’s behaviour will show an understanding of the need to tolerate and respect each other.

The School’s Rules are:

  • Ready
  • Respectful
  • Safe

All members of our school community should be able to explain these rules and they should live out these rules in their interactions with one another.

Each week, we use our collective worship to illustrate the Gospel Values, with a key focus on both the British Values and our school rules.
