Values & Virtues

Virtues and Values

 

At St. Joseph’s we believe our faith permeates all we do, for and with our children. This means we see it as our fundamental duty to understand who God called us to be, so that we can fulfill our God-given potential, and set the world on fire. 

The Archdiocese of Birmingham’s Catholic Schools Pupil Profile is an important aspect of our faith life and faith journey, helping to focus our actions on others.

 

The values and virtues are taken from the Jesuit Institute which is rooted in the teachings of St. Ignatius. They have created a Pupil Profile in which eight complementary words have been placed together.

 

 

 

Each half term, we are focusing on a different pair of words and thinking about how we can grow more like Jesus in our daily lives.
