According to the Gospel, St Joseph, was called to love, protect, educate and nurture Jesus from birth, through childhood and towards the fulfilment of God the Fatherâ€™s purpose for him.
St Joseph’s school is committed to following the example of St Joseph in the following ways:
- Through a close and effective partnership between home, parish and school we surround all our children with the love and encouragement they need to enable each one to develop to their full potential spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally.
- By ensuring our school is a safe and secure environment where every individual is respected for who they are and what they believe. We do not tolerate behaviour, attitudes or ideas which fail to recognise that every one of us is created in the image and likeness of God and each one has the right to live and develop and so take full advantage of the gifts and opportunities given to us.
- We believe that every one of us is called by God to enjoy the thrill and excitement of learning and discovering new things about ourselves and our world each day throughout our lives. We are committed to ensuring that each child in our school is given every opportunity and all the encouragement necessary to learn the skills they require, and to harness the gifts and talents they have, to reach their full potential.
- We know that as we grow and mature we need the love and kindness of others, the grace and guidance of God, the knowledge that we are respected and cherished; to grow in body, mind and soul, into the unique and wonderful person God intends us to be. At St Joseph’s we are committed to ensuring that through careful nurture and encouragement, all our children enjoy each day at school and are equipped to become the confident, able, happy and secure individuals they were made to be. at St Joseph’s we are committed to ensuring that through careful nurture and encouragement, all our children enjoy each day at school and are equipped to become the confident, able, happy and secure individual they were made to be.
