Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting
the welfare of children and young people. We expect all
staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.
If you have concerns regarding the safeguarding or
welfare of any of our pupils, please contact Mrs Elder
(Designated Safeguarding Lead), or Mrs Scott
(Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead).
St Joseph’s participates in Operation Encompass.
Following the report of an incident of domestic abuse,
school will be advised that the child has been involved.

We follow the Big Questions that link to our RE Programme "Come and See." As well as this we add our own as a school. We put the big question on the scrolling banner on the front page of the website each week.
This term some of our questions are;
Which Christian value is most important and why?
Can we serve both God and money?
Can we do the impossible?
Children also add their own to the class book. What Big Question would you like to ask? Please tell your teacher.
A report from Green Class Pupils
On Thursday the 21st of January, we were honoured to have the Bishop come to our school. He came to bless our new nursery. Despite not coming to Rossendale very often he still came all the way here.
He began by reading a service to everyone, before blessing the nursery. After that, Bishop John went around to all the classes to answer some of our questions.
