Our School

Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School! The Governing Body and I are delighted to welcome all our pupils and parents to our our school. Here at St Joseph's, we are passionate about teaching and learning, developing the faith of our children and are committed in continuing to move our school forward. The staff are a committed, hardworking and great team who share our ambitions for the children. The children tell us that they enjoy being here.

We are situated in the rural community of Bingley in the picturesque Aire Valley and have excellent transport links to both Bradford and Leeds. We are an over subscribed school dedicated to providing high quality Catholic education to our children where we are ’Learning with Jesus, to be the best we can be’. We are proud of our school’s reputation as not only a high achieving school, but one which has a very strong Catholic ethos where we ‘Love, Care and Share’.

 We are proud of our beautiful school. There are seven classrooms, a library, mobile ICT facilities, a school hall, kitchen, and a prayer room. Our outside space includes playgrounds, a football pitch, climbing frames, a climbing wall, a 'secret' garden, and a prayer garden. 

The school has close links with the local community.  We cater for around 210 children from rising 4 years to 11 years of age.   Our school serves the immediate parish of St. Mary and Monica's in Cottingley and Sacred Heart in Bingley.

We are part of the Catholic Teaching Schools Alliance after becoming a teaching school in April 2014. Our very strong partnership provides excellent continuing support and professional development and is the driving force behind raising standards for all our children across Bradford and Keighley.
