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!

Severe Weather

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 school is closed, you will be notified as early as possible each day by:

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 www.kirklees.gov.uk/winter or follow them at twitter.com/Kirkleeswinter.

 

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.

Our New School Library

 

St Patrick’s children, staff and community have officially opened their new school library after many months of planning and improvements.

The ‘Families Reading Together’ project has been jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund, Friends of School and the school, along with generous donations from families. A huge thanks for sharing the cost of this dedicated space for reading, alone or as a family, with the aim of developing literacy skills across the school community.  Special thanks also go to Mrs Brown (Literacy Co-ordinator at St Patrick’s) who has worked extremely hard managing the project.

Reading is a vital element in all learning and reading for pleasure is a wonderful lifelong habit to develop. Parents and other family members are the best models and we aim to promote a love of regular reading.

As well as during the school day, the library will open three days a week both before and after-school for family reading, research and exchange of books.

The children love the woodland theme and vibrant colours of the new library and are excited to start using this wonderful new space.
