Vision

St. Joseph’s Primary School is steeped in the Catholic value system which nurtures and develops the unique giftedness of each child and empowers them to reach their potential. It embraces outstanding teaching and learning as a force for positive change and works in partnership with families to develop a community of learning with the child at the centre of a circle of love.

Aims and Preparing for Life

The Principal and staff, in active partnership with the Board of Governors, will encourage each pupil to fulfil his/her intellectual, physical and creative potential through the delivery of the Northern Ireland Curriculum. Our aim is to develop the whole child, to cultivate self-confidence, self-esteem and independence, to enable him/her to make positive contributions to the local and wider community.

In St. Joseph’s we aim to establish a community wherein the pupils, teachers and all the ancillary staff enjoy a sense of belonging and feel that they have an important part to play in the whole education of our pupils. Our aim is to help children to develop habits of self-discipline and acceptable standards of behaviour. We aim to create a calm, caring environment where pupils experience high quality teaching that enables them to reach their full potential.

Here in St. Joseph’s we see the link with the parish as being vital to the overall development of our pupils. This includes cherishing the Catholic tradition and promoting the spiritual aspect of the pupils’ lives.
