Inspired by Christ, Working Together, Achieving Our Best
Develop an ethos where each adult and child is seen as a valued individual, and where personal relationships are a reflection of God’s love and forgiveness.
Help our children to know and understand the beliefs, values, attitudes and practice of Catholics, by helping them to develop their own relationship with God, through prayer, in a worshipping community, and also to give them an understanding and acceptance of other denominations and faiths.
Provide every child with their entitlement to Religious Education and the National Curriculum in order to develop their gifts and talents intellectually, creatively and physically.
Provide an education for all, acknowledging that the society within which we live is enriched by the ethnic diversity, culture and faith of all its citizens.
Foster an awareness of personal responsibility for the environment and all God’s creation.
Promote social justice and equality, by showing concern for all members of society through understanding, sharing, tolerance, self-esteem and respect.
At St. Joseph’s we all:
Share God’s love with everyone
Make thoughtful choices
Ask for help when we really need it
Respect others, our environment and ourselves
Take responsibility for our thoughts, our words and our actions
