Mrs Williams


Welcome to St Joseph's RC Primary School.  Please feel free to explore our class pages and the school information which is regularly updated.

 We are a small Catholic school in the heart of Mossley with happy, inquisitive children and an experienced and enthusiastic staff team. With St Joseph as our role model, we show  commitment to our faith through the 5Ws - Welcome, Worship, Welfare, Word and Witness and have close relationships with our parish and the local community.


Mrs Irene Williams

Head Teacher



The Diocese of Salford inspected Religious Education in the school on 25th and 26th June 2014. They have now published their report.

The Inspectors have provided a report for parents. To read this click HERE.

They have also written to the children. To read their letter click HERE.

As with our Ofsted inspection in May, we want to thank all those who have worked so hard during this inspection and those parents and carers who have been so supportive to the school and staff.
