Our Mission Statement
In Christ we live and learn together.
Our school was founded by and is at the heart of St Joseph’s Parish in Dinnington.
Jesus said, ‘Love one another, as I have loved you’ and this calling is central to our life in school.
We want all members of our community to grow in this love to their full potential, to be happy, and to reach out to the wider community and embrace our children’s motto of ‘caring and sharing.’
