Our Mission and Values

Our Mission

‘Growing in Love in the Spirit of Christ for the benefit of all.”

Our Vision

Our Vision at St. Joseph’s Catholic School is to put Christ at the centre of all we do. We provide a happy, secure and caring environment in which learning, prayer and personal and community growth form the basis for lifelong education.

Our Aims

  • Value everyone in the School, Parish, Local, National and International communities in which we live.
  • Nurture the development of the whole child.
  • Create a secure and stimulating learning environment, both indoor and out where all are motivated to achieve their best.
  • Provide opportunities that enable children to co-operate and work harmoniously.
  • Provide a broad and balanced curriculum relevant to the individual learning and social needs of children living and growing in the area of Boughton and New Ollerton in the 21st Century.
  • Provide a successful partnership between home and school.
  • Use assessment to plan for each child’s progression and next steps to learning.
  • Ensure that all children have equality of access to education and that individual differences are celebrated and support learning.
  • Promote good manners and respect of all.
  • Make prayer a meaningful experience within the life of the school.


House points

From reception upwards, all children are put in a house team.

Our teams are St Patricks, St Davids, St Georges and St Andrews.

Children receive house points for working hard, good behaviour and generally following our school mission statement. A house point shop goes around school once a week where children can spend their points on toys and treats.
