St. Joseph’s is a Voluntary Aided school in the trusteeship of the Salford Diocese, established in 1963 and conducted in accordance with the rites, practices and observances of the Roman Catholic Faith.
In 2018 governors, staff, students, parents and carers reviewed our mission and devised the following mission statement to reflect the work of our school. Students were keen to make the mission statement an acrostic poem using ‘Joeys’ as the lead word. People who are connected to our community in any way are affectionately known as ‘Joeys’. To be a ‘Joey’ means to live out our school mission and people often use the phrase ‘Once a Joey, always a Joey’. Once you have experienced the mission and values of our community they will stay with you forever.
