Reception Class Applications - Friday 15th January 2021


The closing date for applications to Doncaster Council for Reception Class admissions 2021 is today.

To apply please visit 



Due to the heavy snowfall today and the ice-cold conditions overnight, I have made the decision to close school tomorrow (Friday 15th January). 

I apologise for the inconvenience this causes parents who are critical workers, but the health and safety of our school is a priority, especially during this current time. I feel this is the most sensible option to ensure we are all kept safe and do not make a hazardous journey in the morning which puts safety at risk. 

Remote learning will still take place tomorrow through Microsoft Teams and teachers will be in touch about any changes in arrangements for this. 

Thank you in anticipation for your support and understanding.

Take care and stay safe,

Miss Marsden

SNOW - SCHOOL CLOSURE - Thursday 14th January 2021
We have made the decision that school will close at 1pm today due to the weather forecast and the risk this presents for everyone getting home safely. If you can collect your child before 1pm then please do so. If you are unable to collect your child then please phone the school office so that we can make further arrangements.

Thank you


Welcome to ST JOSEPH'S SCHOOL Website 

Hello and welcome to the St Joseph’s website. On behalf of everyone at our wonderful school, I would like to welcome you to our website where you will find information about upcoming events, class news, celebrations and lots more.

St Joseph’s school is a very special place, where children and adults unite together, learning in the light of Christ. The gospel values are central to everything we do, and we are very proud of the special ethos created in school. We believe that each individual should be free to grow in a loving and merciful school community, rooted in determination, courage and hard work. By the grace of God each person can be nurtured to fulfil their purpose.

St Joseph's is a single form entry school. We are part of the Hallam Schools' Partnership Academy Trust (HSPAT). Being part of the MAT provides us with a range of opportunities for collaboration and support. We also have a wonderful spacious nursery, where children can begin their time with us the term after their third birthday. We have high expectations of all members of our school community and we aim to foster a love of learning that children will take to secondary school and through to adult life.


If you have any questions about our school, please use the contact us link. Visits to our school are very warmly welcomed, please get in touch to arrange an appointment. 


With every good wish,

Natalie Kelly

Thank you for visiting our new website. Please leave a comment on our website to let us know what you think of our new website and app. Thank you to everyone who has commented already. Unfortunately there has been a problem with the website guestbook, and the previous comments have not been published. This is now resolved.

Please ensure no products containing nuts or peanuts are brought into school. Bringing these into school can be dangerous, even fatal, to children with allergies. Thank you for your cooperation.
