Catholic Life

Catholic Life

At the heart of St Joseph’s Catholic School are the Bishop Wilkinson Catholic Education Trust values which recognise the unique contribution that every member of our community makes. The Catholic life and mission of the school is underpinned by actions and experiences that ensure that these values are lived out in all aspects of school life and so our pupils grow to know God, understand their vocation, and feel safe, nurtured, valued and aspirational.

· Develop spirituality

We believe that a knowledge of and a personal relationship with Christ brings meaning and direction to life.

· Act with justice, respect and dignity

We believe that every member of our diverse community is created in God’s image and therefore we act with respect and show dignity, ensuring that all are treated with fairness, justice and equity. We work fervently to dispel inequality and pay special attention to those most in need.

· Foster a sense of vocation

We believe that all members of our Trust should be supported to recognise their own purpose and to develop a sense of how they are called to contribute to society.

· Promote educational excellence

We believe that each person should be equipped to excel through the highest quality learning opportunities and richest wider-school experiences.

· Form high aspirations

We believe that every member of our Trust community should have the highest expectations of themselves and others and should be equipped with the knowledge and skills to achieve greatly.

· Celebrate community

We believe that our schools promote truth, honesty, reconciliation, resilience and integrity in their own context, but together create strength, optimism and excellence across the Trust.

· Support exceptional leadership

We believe that the best leadership in Catholic Schools raises the work of the staff and the attainment of young people to levels that exceed expectations through relentless focus, effective management skills, profound empathy, sustained energy and robust optimism, underpinned by wide professional knowledge founded on innovative research.

Gardening Gang

Our year 5 gardening gang have been hard at work in our gardens. The flowers are looking lovely in the reflection garden. The children are working hard on the allotment garden, there are so many weeds to dig out! Well done for all of the hard work.

Reception Class

Reception have been learning all about people who help them within the community. They also looked at different jobs within the NHS. The children enjoyed dressing up and stepping into role.

Celebration of the Word

Thank you to all parents and friends of Year 5 who attended Celebration of the Word. The theme was Mary the Mother of God.
