In May 2017 St. Joseph's was graded as 'GOOD' by OFSTED. We are very proud of this. Ofsted stated 'Effective leadership and teaching have ensured that the school’s end-of-key-stage test results are now significantly above the national expected average in all areas reported on'.



R.N.L.I. Visit

Mr Parker from the R.N.L.I. visited the school and presented a whole school assembly where he discussed sea and water safety.  He talked about the work of volunteers and the equipment they use. He also told the story of Grace Darling and how she and her father saved lives in a heroic way.  Some children had the opportunity to dress as lifeguards and the school held a collection for the R.N.L.I which raised £129.

Visit to Leeds Cathedral

A group of children, along with two adults, visited Leeds Cathedral to present the monies they had raised during the Good Shepherd fund raising appeal.  Due to all the children's hard work, the school were able to present a cheque for £500 to Bishop Marcus.

Good Shepherd

The children once again took part in the annual Good Shepherd fund raising activities.  The children ran stalls to raise money for this worthy cause.  The monies raised have been donated to Cafod  and The Good Shepherd appeal. Additionally ,some of the proceeds have been donated to Holy Saviours School who are raising money to take special needs resources to a school in Dagaretti in Kenya. The total raised this year was an amazing £1075.23. 

Dementia Awareness 

Some children from ECOol club attended a Dementia Awareness event at the Parish Community Centre.  They listened to a very inspirational speaker, held a raffle and sold cakes.  They raised £180 for the Alzheimers Society.
