Principal's Message

Welcome to St Joseph’s, Carryduff.   Our website contains a wide range of information about life in St Joseph’s.  This includes news of the children’s achievements and information about the policies and procedures which govern important aspects of our work.  The school profile below seeks to capture the key aspects of provision in St Joseph’s and hopefully, it will provide you with helpful information about our school.  However, if you would like further clarification about any aspect of life in St Joseph’s, please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to answer any queries you may have.

St Joseph's Mission Statement

In St Joseph’s a culture of achievement, improvement and ambition exists with clear expectations that all pupils can and will achieve to the very best of their ability.

We aim to provide an inclusive, caring and safe environment in which all children can grow in self-esteem, independence and confidence.  Our care for the children enables their holistic development; spiritually, physically, intellectually, morally, emotionally and socially. 

Integral to this is the recognition of the self-worth and value of every child, the fostering of the key values of Catholic education and the promotion of mutual understanding and respect for others.    

In order to accomplish this we seek to create a learning community where children, parents, staff and governors demonstrate a commitment to achieving high standards, mutual care and support of each other.
