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.

We are moving back to all children arriving at school at 8:45am and finishing at 3:15pm when they return on Wednesday 8th September.

All children will use the main entrance.

Parents are able to walk around to the classroom doors with their children but we ask them to wear a face covering unless they are exempt.
