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 and continues to attract welcome the children and grandchildren of those it has already taught.
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 develop their belief in themselves and their ability to achieve their full potential making a truly valuable contribution to the world in which we live. Staff, parents and children work together at St Joseph's to create a loving, caring environment in which children feel safe and happy.
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 Section 5 Inspection, 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.”
Pupils enjoy school and especially the broad and structured curriculum and enrichment opportunities provided. Pupils are learning much about their world and the values and ethics the school teaches them. They relish the diversity of the school and the community which it serves and point to how much they learn from each other as a result.

Parents, staff and pupils are very positive about the school. Parents value the school and support its caring yet rigorous academic emphasis. Staff are proud to work at the school, feel well supported and in turn go beyond what is expected to support each other and the children and their families.

We have a school of which we are proud and in which we take pride! We strive for the highest possible standards and we achieve what we do because the children are happy and supported in school and because we want the best for the children in our care. We have strong partnerships with our parish of St Margaret Clitherow, the Diocese of Leeds and our Catholic Teaching Alliance which together enhance our children's experience of Catholic education as loving, respectful, caring, warm and welcoming.
