Holy Family & St Michael’s Catholic Primary, Pontefract

Our mission as a Catholic School is to create and develop a community centered upon the teaching of Jesus Christ where all individuals are enabled to reach their full potential.

Holy Family and St Michael’s Catholic Primary School, a voluntary academy is a welcoming school with Christ at the centre.

We aim to ensure that pupils are given a secure environment which allows for their spiritual, emotional and intellectual development and which will enable them to become a happy, useful and successful member of society.

Central to the life of the school and underpinning all that we do are the gospel values of love, respect, honesty, justice, forgiveness and a sense of community. The school is a happy place where children are well behaved and the parents and governors are supportive. In September 2017 the school received an Ofsted Section 5 inspection and it was found to be a ‘Good’ school.

Canon Tim Wiley, our Parish Priest, visits school regularly to say Mass and also to lead the children in spiritual and moral development.
