Friday May 20th is Whit Friday.

It is a time of traditional celebration in Mossley.

As a school we participate in the walk of witness as part of our faith development in a Catholic school. It is a wonderful and unique occasion and all parents/carers are welcome to join us.

Note that school will close at 1.30

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.

Best wishes,

Sheila Partington

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.
