Vision, Mission, Ethos, Aims & Core Values

Vision;

‘Let Your Light Shine’

Mission;

In our school we aim to create a safe and caring environment where everyone feels happy and valued.  Through our Catholic ethos we encourage respect for self and others.  We ensure each child is motivated and provided with the opportunity to fulfil their potential.

Ethos;

St. Joseph’s Primary school is a co-educational maintained primary school situated in the village of Meigh in the parish of Upper Killeavy.  It is one of three schools in the parish who work cooperatively for all the children of Upper Killeavy. 

St. Joseph’s was formed following the closure of Ballinliss and Adavoyle schools.  St. Joseph’s Primary School has been successfully serving the community on its current site since September 1969 and will mark its 50th year anniversary in 2019/20.

St. Joseph’s Meigh is a close-knit school with a strong sense of community. We are proud of our traditions and history, while simultaneously being forward-looking and highly ambitious for every child who attends the school.

At St. Joseph’s Meigh Primary School our priority is to develop a love of learning, inspired by quality teaching by building and developing upon all of our individual talents. We work tirelessly to ensure that our children enjoy a stimulating and enriched education; learning is irresistible, children are happy, feel safe and are valued. Learning experiences are rich and enjoyable.


Everything we do as a school is to ensure that our children achieve their very best and we are deeply aware that children only get one chance at their primary education. It is therefore our job to ensure that they all reach for the highest levels of personal achievement and development. We want every child to be successful and be the best they can be; to reach for success from the very first day they join us so when they leave us, they have a growth mindset and love of learning for the rest of their lives.

Aims: To;-

Create an environment that is safe, secure, stimulating and vibrant that is conducive to the development of the whole child so that they can reach their full potential academically, socially, emotionally, physically, morally, creatively and spiritually.

Recognise and celebrate each child’s uniqueness, individuality, talents and achievements thereby helping them to grow in confidence, independence and self-esteem.

Promote a pleasant attitude for pupils and staff with an emphasis on self-discipline, respect for others opinions and property, courtesy and good manners.

Build on children’s existing knowledge, skills and understanding by providing a broad, balanced child centered curriculum which is motivating and challenging for each pupil and prepares them to be the best they can be with a life-long love of learning.

Promote effective learning and teaching strategies by disseminating existing good practice, whilst harnessing future developments and initiatives supported by high quality resources and continuing professional development for all staff.

Develop strong collaborative partnerships and positive working relationships with all members of our school community.

Get to know God and grow closer to Him through our pastoral care, daily prayer, sacramental preparation and commitment to developing a deeper understanding of our Catholic faith.
