About St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, Hunslet

St Joseph’s is a one form entry school for children age 4¬-11. It is situated in Hunslet, Leeds, in the Parish of St Margaret Clitherow. Saint Joseph's Catholic Primary School has a long history of education in Hunslet. The first “school” dates back to the 1870s. The school building gradually developed, beginning with the classrooms that our youngest children now use. Since then education has seen many changes and despite the old building, Saint Joseph's Catholic Primary School has moved with the times. Our Mission Statement: 'St Joseph's: following in the footsteps of Jesus, having fun learning achieving and loving together' reflects the Gospel values as we encourage every child to achieve their full potential. Staff, parents and children work together at St Joseph’s to create a loving, caring environment in which children feel safe and happy. Our aim is to develop the whole child who will make a truly valuable contribution to the world in which we live.
The very best part of our school is our children. The school is a calm, well ordered and welcoming place to learn. At our last s5, inspectors commented that “you are determined that every child in your care must and will do well. You work imaginatively and carefully to make this happen”. (OFSTED 2018). The main conclusion was that our school: “has maintained the good quality of education in the school” and that “school provides children with a language-rich environment where they are encouraged to talk, as they explore a wide range of interesting activities.”
