‘Living Life to the Full’

John 10:10


Aims and Objectives:


To be a community where the message of Jesus is truly alive:


  • By welcoming everyone into our school and treating them as we would like to be treated;
  • By saying our daily prayers, following the example of Jesus;
  • By being ready to forgive and to be forgiven;
  • By recognizing the beauty of God’s world.


To look after each other so that we can always do our best:


  • By knowing that we are all different and accepting and celebrating these differences;
  • By knowing what we have to do to make our work better;
  • By celebrating our gifts and talents during achievement assemblies.


To look after each other so that we can always do our best:

  • By joining in with what is happening at home, at church and in our local area;
  • By using our talents to help people who are not as lucky as we are both in our own country and around the world.
  • By learning about the lives, faiths and cultures of others.

RE Statement:

The Governors and Staff of St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School recognise that they work to educate the children in their care in a range of ways; at the centre of this is the spiritual and moral development of the children, particularly in the Catholic faith.

In fulfilment of our Mission Statement, Living life to the Full, the aim of Religious Education at St Joseph’s school is to provide a Religious Education programme which will take into account the religious and educational needs of our children.

It will enrich the faith of those supportive Catholic homes, but it will also support those for whom the school may be their first and perhaps only experience of church.
