Crofton Junior School is a semi-rural school, situated approximately 3 miles from Wakefield City centre. It is one of four schools in this large village. We are a two form entry school and there are currently 236 pupils on roll, of which a large proportion travel from outside the catchment.


Ofsted rated the school as "Good" following inspection in January 2018. Please follow the link below to read the full report.

Year 6 France Residential

We are delighted that we have managed to re-arrange the date for our Year 6 France Residential at no extra cost. The visit to Laval will now take place between Monday 7th and Friday 11th June. If travel restrictions are still in place resulting in the visit being unable to go ahead, all moneys will be refunded. Please visit your online payment account for further information.

Year 5 & 6 Cycle Safety Sessions

We have organised for Year 6 Bikeability sessions to take place on the week of 14th December and Year 5 the 22nd March. Usually only Year 5 take part; however, due to missing out as a result of the lockdown, we have managed to arrange for our Year 6 pupils to take part also.
