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.

    Isolation Guide
    The School Office is currently getting lots of questions about the current rules and guidelines around Covid symptoms. Please find attached a document which should make this clearer for all families, and is the guidance that the School Office is following. Call 111 if you are unsure if your child has symptoms (not the School Office.) Remember the Covid symptoms are: - a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature) - a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual) - a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal Take Care and Stay Safe.

    Parent Safety
    It has been suggested by a few parents today that we try a pedestrian one-way system on the Driveway and Avenue to keep our Parents safe. We suggest you keep to the right hand pavement on the way up to and away from school. Please maintain a social distance from one another and know that you are welcome to wear a face covering if you feel more comfortable doing so. Stay Safe and Take Care.
