St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School

To protect with love, all of God’s gifts

October break 2017

School will close on Friday 20th October at 3pm and re-open on Tuesday 31st October 2017 at 8.55am.

Our Year 6 were thrilled to take part in CPR training with West Yorkshire Ambulance Service.  Here are a few pictures of the event.

Our Year 6 children have returned from a wonderful week away with friends at Buckden, challenging themselves and learning how to support one another to reach their goals. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff who gave up their own family time to give the children such a wonderful experience which I know will stay with them for many years! THANK YOU.

Activities at the centre are designed to support curriculum work in Literacy, Geography and P.E. involving adventurous activities such as caving, orienteering archery and climbing.  Any additional aims are to develop personal self–confidence, independence and co-operative team skills.
