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!

The Good Shepherd Service at St Anne's Cathedral, Leeds

Well done to all the children who represented St Patrick's Catholic Primary School and Our Lady of Lourdes School at the Good Shepherd Service Celebration on Friday 11 May.   The readings, choir, liturgical dance and poetry were excellent, as were their manners. 

We received some fantastic comments from members of the congregation and school community. May we thank everybody for their very kind generosity towards the Catholic Care Appeal during our Lenten Appeal. A cheque for £1500.00 was presented to Bishop Marcus on behalf of our school.

Thank you also to all the families for ensuring that the children were at school, prompt and ready to travel at 7:00am.

God Bless.

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.
