OUR SCHOOLS ETHOS AND VALUES.
Here at St. Joseph’s, we are very proud of the nurturing environment that we promote.
We believe that every child should be encouraged to achieve their potential in a variety of areas of school life, albeit academic, sport, music, computing, art or developing their sense of responsibility; hence our Mission Statement ‘Living Life to the Full.’
Our RE monitoring visit (June 2016 – Archdiocese of Liverpool), which deemed us still as ‘an outstanding Catholic school’ commented on:
The radiant happiness of all in the school
The awe-inspiring learning environment
The philosophy that encourages acceptance of difference
The Debate Club to encourage democracy
The wide variety of extra-curricular activities to encourage all to live life to the full in accordance with the Mission Statement.
Pupils have a strong sense of common values across different societies. They embrace new experiences which broaden their understanding: carol singing at Don Orione, links with New Hope Orphanage, Kenya.
Pupils raise money for both national and international charities. In recent times, ‘The Big Share for CAFOD’ has been a focus of a School Council coffee morning. ‘The Good Shepherd Service’ and ‘The Advent Service’ both in aid of Nugent Care; has also received support from school.
Our Y6 children visit London in the Autumn term, taking a tour of the Houses of Parliament. This supports work done in school on democracy, freedom of speech, the rule of law and mutual respect.
