Visions, Values and Aims
We prepare our children for the challenges of the future in a nurturing and stimulating environment built on Catholic foundations.
At St Joseph’s Park Hill we value the unique individuality of every child and every child is valued and recognised as a child of God.
Following the example of our Foundress Catherine Mc Auley, we place great importance on the need for tolerance and understanding and concern for others.
We teach our children to follow the example of St Joseph whose values are humility and gentleness.
We value respect and we teach our pupils the importance of having respect for their parents, for their teachers, for each other, for God’s creation and for themselves.
We have a strong belief in the traditional values of hard work, courtesy and good behaviour.
We value friendship and forgiveness and our children are taught to
“LOVE ONE ANOTHER”
We aim to provide the highest quality of teaching and learning for all our children.
We aim to provide an environment where children are respectful to each other, to the staff and to themselves.
We aim to provide opportunities for our children to develop spiritually, acquiring an appreciation of their own and others faiths, cultures and beliefs.
We aim to provide an environment where our children are happy and feel safe from bullying and discrimination.
We aim to provide a happy, caring environment where success is celebrated and hard work rewarded.
We aim to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills necessary for our children to enter the next phase of their education with confidence and motivation.
We aim to encourage our children to be aware of the needs of others in this country and around the world.
We aim to provide an environment where children are free to express themselves and to want to learn.
We aim to build an inclusive community where all are valued.
At St Joseph’s Park Hill our vision is that each precious child that comes to us will be taught values which will ensure that when they leave us:
They are respectful of others, acknowledging that the world is a diverse place, created by God.
They are motivated to learn and have the confidence to believe that they can achieve anything if they work hard and believe in themselves.
They have the essential skills to take their place in an ever changing world.
They are enthusiastic and hopeful about their future.
They have the values that lead them to ask not“What do I want to be when I grow up?” but “What kind of person do I want to be when I grow up?”
