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!

Please do not gather around the school gates as you wait, as we need to leave the driveway clear for other families and delivery drivers.

Parents are welcome to wear a face covering on the school playground.  Please keep your distance from others, especially if you have to approach a member of staff.  Please remember Hands, Face, Space.

    Beginning of the School Day
    Thank you to everyone who is doing their best to keep the Covid infection rate at our school as low as possible. No-one wants a positive test within school, and no-one wants a class or Year group to be asked to Self-isolate. Our main priority is keeping everyone safe. To do this we ask that you please: - Keep to the right hand side of the road around school. - Ensure your children are not playing on the road or driveway. - Wear your face covering on the playground if only for the few minutes you are mixing with other Parents. - Be prompt at your child's start time (No children should be coming through the main entrance) - Leave the playground as soon as your child is safely in the line with their teacher. Please do not wait until the line has moved out of sight. We hope that these small and simple measures will continue to keep our rate of positive tests and Pod closures low. We are all very aware of how high infection rates in Kirklees currently are, and we want our school to remain open and safe for as long as possible. Thank you.

    Road Safety - Vizzy Vests
    Keeping our children safe is our highest priority at school and we have been working with the Birkby, Hillhouses and Fartown Community Group over the last year on a Road Safety Campaign. As part of this campaign, our local Policing team have helped us with parking patrols to ensure Parents do not stop their cars on the yellow zigzags at the bottom of the school drive. They will also be working with the children in school (via Zoom) to help all the children understand how to be safe on the roads. The group have kindly purchased Hi-Visibility Tabards for every child at St Patrick's and at Birkby Infant and Junior Schools. These 'Vizzy Vests' are gifted to your child and we ask your child to wear it every day on the way to and from school. Even if you travel by car, your child needs to Be Safe and Be Seen whilst they are near the roads around school, especially around the Birkby area. There will be fantastic prizes for the classes which have the most children wearing the vests over the next few weeks! We are thankful for the support of the Community Group and how their aim is to improve the view of Birkby and to make it a safe place for families and children. We hope that you will return their support by making the most of this gift.

    Face Covering Reminder and Updates
    Good morning, The update last night on another National Lockdown, following Kirklees move to Tier 3 this week has been a reminder of how quickly the situation can change during the Covid-19 Pandemic. We will continue to follow all the guidance provided to schools and will keep families updated on any further changes. Our main priority remains the safety of all our children, staff and Parents. The guidance for schools was last updated on the 22nd October, and we have made some amendments to our Risk Assessments in line with this. These are on the school website under 'Covid Advice' for anyone who would like to read them. We would like to remind all Parents and visitors that face coverings must be worn by adults on the school playground from Monday 2nd November at the beginning and end of the day. Please maintain a social distance from each other and leave the school playground as soon as your child is safely in the line with their Teacher. We ask that Parents make use of the school office email and telephone for any messages, rather than approaching the teachers on the playground. It is very important that we all do everything we can to keep our school open and safe. We must continue to work together as a school community to take care of each other and to limit the spread of any infection. Thank you for your support.
