Outstanding in all areas

Under the guidance of our patriarch, St Joseph, and inspired by centuries of Catholic teaching, we begin to learn how to serve each other and our world with the same faithful joy which we see in Jesus, our saviour and our Lord. 

St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, Pontefract, a voluntary academy, is a welcoming learning community with Christ at its  heart. We have been an academy since November 2012, as part of the wider 'Bishop Konstant' Catholic Academy Trust, and we enjoy our close  relationship with the Catholic network of schools around us.

Learning through Christ is at the heart of our school mission, and this was affirmed when we were  judged as 'outstanding in all areas' both  in our 2012 Ofsted inspection and our 2012  R. E inspection.We have supportive parents, wonderful, well behaved, enthusiastic children and a very supportive governing body.We work hard to ensure we are a central part of the community of St Joseph's, and have a very close relationship with our Parish priest, Father Simon Lodge.
