Welcome to St Patrick's Catholic Primary School

Welcome to St Patrick's Catholic Primary School which is one of the family of Catholic primary schools in the Diocese of Leeds, serving within our parish the communities of St Patricks Church in Huddersfield and Holy Family Church in Slaithwaite. Central to our mission is the message of Jesus which lies at the heart of all that we try to achieve.

If you would like to know more about us, a visit to the school will help you appreciate the caring atmosphere we provide for our children enabling them to flourish and grow to become independent learners. Many Blessings!

Important - Severe Weather Information

Here is the information you need to know about any severe weather, especially snow, which may affect the school in the forthcoming weeks.  It is very important that we have up-to-date contact information.  Please let the office know if your details have changed.

If weather conditions worsen during the day and a decision is made to close the school early, you will be notified by text message.

You can also check on weather and gritting updates at or follow them at

School will only be closed in exceptional circumstances where the safety of your child/ren is at risk.   This could be due to the availability of teaching staff that travel some distance to reach school, rather than purely conditions for pupils getting to school.


Everyone in school is excited by the installation of the Roktagon - our custom-built, 3D cimbing structure.  Huge thanks to Friends of the School and the Big Lottery Fund for their support with this project!
