St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School was founded by the Catholic Church to provide education for baptised Catholic children. The school is run by its governing body as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with its Trust Deed and Instrument of Government and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ. If the number of preferences received is less than the admission number then all preferences will be met. However, when there are more applications than places available, priority will always be given to Catholic applicants in accordance with the oversubscription criteria listed in our policy. By applying to this school parents, or carers, are declaring their support for the aims and ethos of the school.
Please refer to the full policy for further information which is available upon request or on the school website. Prospective parents should make an application following the Local Authority procedures and guidance. A Supplementary Information Form is also required and should be returned directly to school.
Induction of new pupils
All children offered a place are admitted into the school at the beginning of the Autumn term. In the term prior to admission, parents are invited into school for a Welcome Meeting, where you will meet key members of staff and be given useful information. Your child will also be invited into school to spend some time during the school day getting to know the new surroundings and following new routines.
Our Admission Policy for 2019/20 is presently being consulted upon. It has been amended in line with Leeds Diocese model policy. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
