We have excellent relationships with our seven Catholic primary Schools and with Newport Local Education Authority. The school has achieved the Investors in People Standard. St Joseph's places great emphasis on the whole development of every child. This development is firmly based on Gospel values. Every child is valued as a unique individual, precious to God. The curriculum is wide and provides opportunities for children to make the most of their God-given abilities. We do our best to ensure that every one of our children, whatever their strengths or weaknesses, feels cared for and challenged. We aim to make learning and teaching as interesting as possible. Our pupils are given strategies to enable them to become more effective learners. We want our pupils to develop a love of learning and become life long learners. The range of extra-curricular opportunities in sport, drama and music, enables everyone to develop their interests and talents.

Our Mission Statement


We use the key phrase

                                    Serving God Through Learning Together

                                                                                     to remind us of our mission.

As a Catholic School we are conscious of our need to love and serve God in all that we do.  Our daily work is our prayer.  As a school we emphasise learning as the paramount experience.  All of us are learning as we move through life.  Our experiences as a community are shared; we work together for the benefit of all.

As a school community we have three broad aims.

1.   To teach the Roman Catholic faith and to provide a formation for each child that will allow that child to realise his/her full potential in all aspects of moral and spiritual development.

  • By providing a sound factual knowledge of the Roman Catholic Faith, primarily but not exclusively, through an appropriate programme of Religious Education.
  • By offering formal opportunities for faith development – e.g. through a weekly voluntary celebration of the Mass; and through assemblies.
  • Through informal opportunities for development – e.g. Retreats, Missions and other liturgical celebrations.
  • By emphasising Gospel values in all relationships within the school community.
  • By exploring Gospel values in all areas of the curriculum.
  • By enabling children to understand the moral consequences of their actions so that they develop a sense of self-discipline and concern for others, for instance through the Schools’ Code of Conduct.
  • By involving parents, whenever possible in all aspects of school life.


2.   To provide a balanced educational programme appropriate to the needs of each child, recognising the uniqueness of each child, while at the same time, providing equality of opportunity for all.

  • By providing a curriculum which is broad, balanced and relevant for all our children and suitable guidance at each stage of their school career.
  • By ensuring that no child is discriminated against or disadvantaged on the basis of race, gender or ability.
  • By teaching strategies and relationships which affirm the child and promote self-esteem.
  • To have high-expectations of all pupils.


3.   To provide a social education enabling all children to play an important role in the life of the community.

  • Through a programme of personal and social education.
  • By emphasising Christian responsibility through charities and community service.
  • Through a range of extra-curricular activities.
  • By providing opportunities within school for the development of social skills, for instance through the School Council.
