Vision and Mission Statement

An inclusive Catholic community where integrated Therapy, Care and Education meets the needs of those with complex learning difficulties to reach their full potential regardless of starting points and individual challenges. 

The students, their families, staff, and governors make up St. Joseph’s Specialist Trust. Together we will create a supportive Catholic ethos within a Christian environment, with aims, structures and curricula designed to achieve the full potential of all students.

St. Joseph’s aims to be:

  • a total learning environment where every aspect of the students’ experience helps them in the development of new skills and understanding which they can use now, and will continue to be of value in the future.

St. Joseph’s aims to provide:

  • a pastoral support for our students and families, enabling them to meet their difficulties together;
  • a service to families and education authorities, responding to needs and adapting to changes in demand, that cannot be met in the maintained sector.

St. Joseph’s aims to achieve:

  • a good reputation for the high standards of care and education, and a spiritual strength that supports and encourages all those connected with the school.

 ‘No limits … just possibilities’

The aims in this Mission Statement will be achieved through policies, procedures and staff continuing professional development.
