At St. Joseph’s, our Mission Statement
As a Catholic family we welcome all and value Christ in everyone, whilst seeking the highest possible achievements
is central to everything that we do. It inspires our curriculum design, is the basis for policy decisions and underpins our whole school culture and ethos; something which we are extremely proud of. As the children develop and mature they are encouraged to put their faith into practice in their own lives, through their interactions with others and kindness and generosity to those less fortunate, both within our local community and further afield.
Oscar Romero Award
Oscar Romero was the Archbishop of San Salvador in El Salvador. He spent his life as ‘the voice of the voiceless’ working for the poor and forgotten and continually encouraged people to ‘aspire not to have more, but to be more.’ On the 24th March 1980, he was assassinated for continually speaking out for the poor.
The Romero Award is a charitable award to help Catholic schools and colleges put Catholic Social Teaching in to action.
It recognises, celebrates and encourages schools to:
- Live out the message of Jesus
- Care for our neighbours
- Make the world a fairer place
- Tell people about how and why we should care for others
- Raise money to help those in need
- Make a real difference to the world we live in
St Joseph’s is proud to say that we have achieved the first level of the award.
