Friday is my last day teaching after 36 years - 15 of them as Head Teacher here at St Joseph's!
So may I thank all the parents and staff who have supported me over the years - and wish all of the pupils and staff that I have worked with in that time good luck for the future.
God Bless and Best Wishes

Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back to the final half term of this school year. It feels very strange and almost unreal to be writing my last full newsletter to you after fifteen years here as Head Teacher but this is actually it!
As we reach the last few weeks of term here are just a few reminders of events that will hopefully be taking place on the date and time given. Please be aware however that rain can stop play.
The most important message is to update parents about staffing changes. Sadly, no one applied for my post as Head Teacher so the Diocese have placed an Acting Head Teacher, Mrs Williams, into the post for the next twelve months. She will be here from September 1st onwards and I am sure will be a great new asset to the school and will be warmly welcomed to the school. She comes very highly recommended and is already getting to know us.
Miss Mulligan and Mrs Poole will both be leaving St. Joseph’s at the end of term also, one to promotion elsewhere and one to a change of career. I know that you will all wish them every future success. Interviews are taking place next week to recruit new staff and once appointed parents and children will be informed of class teachers for next year. Current staff are also moving classes so next year will be different for everyone and as such is something to look forward to.
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.
Welcome to St. Joseph’s...
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.
Click HERE to look at the message and make sure our pupils are aware of the dangers involved.
