St Joseph's Primary School, Crossgar

School Motto

"Learn to Love, Love to Learn"

Saint Joseph's Primary School provides a friendly, caring and excellent learning environment for the children of Crossgar and outlying rural districts.

As a Catholic school the core values of respect, tolerance, honesty and inclusivity permeate all relationships and aspects of school life.

In our school, we put the children at the heart of every decision, and value the great relationships that we have formed with our parents.

We are extremely proud of all that goes on within our school and you will see how well the children are supported in their learning through the dedicated work of the staff, parents, parent teacher association and governors.

We want our pupils to be happy, settled and confident in their school surrounding. We therefore strive to ensure the environment is safe, secure and friendly, to enable children to develop to their full potential.

We value strongly the partnership that exists between St Joseph’s, the parents, local businesses, local and neighbouring sports teams and the community here in Crossgar. We have very close links with Appleblossom Preschool, which is situated within our school premises.

We pride ourselves on nurturing very good relationships with the other local primary schools. These relationships are fundamental in supporting each child’s development and we look forward to maintaining and improving these links.
