Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to Our Lady & St Joseph Catholic Primary School.  We are a fully inclusive school with the Gospel Values and a spirited message of 'Service' at the heart of all we do.

We absolutely recognise that each and every child is a unique and precious individual, made in the image and likeness of God, with their own special gifts and talents. We try our utmost to nurture and develop these gifts and talents to enable each child to reach their full potential whilst in our care.

Our school mission statement is central to the ethos of our school: 'With Christ at our centre, we love, listen and learn.'

The love we have for each other, and the love we have for Christ, is the foundation stone of our school. Just being at Our Lady & St Joseph is a privilege – we have wonderful children, families, staff and a rich and vibrant community.

Thank you for visiting our site and I hope you find all the information you need.

God Bless,
Mr Devereux

What are the Gospel Values?

(Excerpt from “Christ at the Centre”)

Whilst not definitive, the Gospel values based on the Beatitudes may be summarized as follows:

Gospel Values


Faithfulness & Integrity

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven”

Dignity & Compassion

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted”

Humility & Gentleness

“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth”

Truth & Justice

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be satisfied”

Forgiveness & Mercy

“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy”

Purity & Holiness

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God”

Tolerance & Peace

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children on God”

Service & Sacrifice

“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of slander against you because of me.

Be glad and rejoice for your reward is great in heaven; they persecuted the prophets before you in the very same way”

Christ at the Centre

Our Mission Statement: With Christ at our centre, we love, listen and learn.
