Our Parish

We are part of St Joseph's Parish in Stanley, which is part of the Pontop Partnership.


Our priest Fr. Dermott Donnelly is a regular visitor to school.


He can be contacted on  01207 299012.


Sunday Mass at St Joseph's is at 11am on a Sunday morning.

Sacramental Preparation


The preparation and celebration of First Sacraments takes place in Year 4.


We follow the Diocesan programme which has planned sessions led by parish catechists after school (in the spring term) followed by a specific liturgy within the parish mass the following weekend.

The children will receive Sacramental education within their RE curriculum in the Autumn and Spring terms.


If you have any questions please contact Margaret Arthurs, Mrs Daniels or Mrs Robson at school.
