Christian Ethos and Values
Our school vision is:
St Joseph’s Junior school is at the heart of the community.
Through our journey with God we inspire life-long learners where every child is valued and loved.
This is underpinned by the verse from John 13v 34-35 “Love one another as I have loved you”. These support the overall DCAT Academy vision, “helping every child achieve their God-given potential”. We feel a deep responsibility to nurture happy, responsible and confident young people of faith and values.
As a church Academy, we provide a Christian ethos that infuses the wider Academy community. Our teaching and reflection times focus on developing a strong culture of care, respect and empathy for one another within a distinctively Christian environment.
The strong links with the Diocese and church contributes to the spiritual life of the school and provides a resource for religious education. Church representation on the Governing body ensures the school develops an ethos in accordance with its original foundation.
