Happy New Year and welcome back to school. We look forward to a busy Spring Term. 

Welcome to our school.

A warm welcome to our school, St Mary and St Joseph, a Voluntary Aided Roman Catholic Primary School in the Diocese of Middlesbrough, serving the Parish of St Mary and St Joseph, Pocklington. Together with our families and members of the Parish, we provide a Christian community where each child is valued for his or her unique talents and personality.

At St Mary and St Joseph’s, we hope, through a team of dedicated staff, to lay the foundations for a lifetime of learning, developing the whole person by offering each child a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum, enabling them to develop skills, acquire knowledge and appreciate and extend their creative and physical abilities.

In these web pages you will find information about all areas of our school life; if you have further questions or would like to visit our welcoming and friendly school, then please do not hesitate to contact us and make an appointment to look around our school - you will be made to feel very welcome.
