Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School,

Wrightington September 2023….we can’t wait to see you!




Welcome to St Joseph’s, especially to those of you looking at our school for September 20223. Hopefully, you will find lots of useful information on our website…particularly on this part which is just for you! This section of the website will continue to be updated.


We know that you need to make a very, very big decision…..where is best for your little one to begin their school life? Where will they be happy?


Our Open Day tours this year will be on Wednesday 2nd November at 2.00pm and 6.00pm. Both sessions will begin with a presentation by the Headteacher and Deputy - who is also our EYFS lead. We have also included a virtual tour of the school to show our school at its best….. when it is alive with children and fun! We have also included a story time session, led by Miss Gleeson – our EYFS teacher.


We offer a full transition programme which is made up of an induction meeting in the hall; a chance for Parents to meet with all of the different people involved with school…The School Kitchen, The School Nurse, our Uniform Provider and  Club Joey’s. Our induction sessions are one of our favourite events of the year…welcoming our new children. We hold ‘Stay & Play’ sessions giving the new children the chance to come and meet with their new classmates and teachers; we introduce our new children to their Year 6 Buddies – this is always very popular; Lunchtime in school – where you can come in with your child to experience a school lunch eaten in the school hall.


Please check our twitter page: @stjosephswright and our Facebook page: St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School Wrightington. Both of these are full of the exciting things that we do in school and will demonstrate to you what a close community we have here at school.


Please do not hesitate to contact school: or by telephone on 01257 423092.


We can’t wait to welcome you all! Take care

Mrs Baxendale and all of the Staff at St Joseph's x
