We at St. Joseph’s BNS, believe that the children in our school are our highest priority.
We promote a cooperative partnership among students, parents, community and staff.
Our mission is to build a strong foundation for lifelong learning by nurturing, guiding, and challenging all of our students to achieve their maximum potential.
We believe all children are entitled to develop to their fullest potential –
academically, socially, emotionally, physically, morally, spiritually and aesthetically, enabling each child to grow in confidence to participate in the wider community.
We provide a happy caring and stimulating environment promoting self-esteem and confidence.
We work in partnership with parents and the community in an atmosphere of mutual trust.
We believe that our staff; teachers, SNAs, ancillary staff, are the best resource we have in order to deliver the best possible education to our
students and we encourage a caring and collegiate approach where every staff member is cared for and is treated as an equal.
We believe that staff members have an enormous role to play in modelling behaviour to our students and in modelling a calm, professional, caring approach to each other, to the parents, and to the pupils we care for.
We encourage staff to take part in life-long learning and we also encourage individual staff members and the staff as a collegiate body to be reflective practitioners.
We encourage parents to be partners with us in the life of the school.
We provide a welcoming atmosphere to parents and to the wider community.
