6th September 2016

A warm welcome back to St Joseph’s I hope you all had a wonderful summer and are ready to take on a new school year. It was wonderful to see so many happy faces this morning, the children look so smart in their uniforms.

As you know, Mrs Partington retired at the end of the year and I have the pleasure of being your Head Teacher for the next year. 

I would like to invite you to our first whole school awards assembly at 2.45pm this Friday 9th September. Two children from each class will be receiving an award for showing the Gospel values whilst in school. We will also have the opportunity to pray and sing together as a school community.




In line with government recommendations please ensure that any snack you give your child to be eaten at playtime is either fresh fruit or a packet of raisins (as issued in early years).

 Furthermore please do not supply any fizzy drinks or sports drinks in children’s lunchboxes.

Thank you in anticipation.


Mrs I Williams (Acting Head Teacher)

Welcome to St. Joseph’s

St. Joseph’s is a small, successful, happy Catholic school in the middle of Mossley.

We are justifiably proud of all the achievements of our children, parents and staff.

Please read our pages to find out more about life in our school.

Just like St. Joseph’s own original workshop we hope you will find this site full of useful information and easy to use tools, a practical place to drop into every now and again and come out with a well crafted idea and help.

The site will be regularly updated so please keep looking. You are also welcome to contact us if you would like to know more or visit us.


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.

British Transport Police Manchester visited school yesterday with a flyer regarding Trespassing and Anti-Social Behaviour on the railway network and asked if we would you upload it onto our website as the summer holiday is fast approaching and they would like to get the message to parents and pupils about the dangers of the railway.
