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!

Red Wednesday - 22 November 2017


From Sunday 19th to Sunday 26th November events are held around Red Wednesday. This is to highlight persecution, harrassment and the people and places around the world that are often dangerous settings to practise religious freedom. In school the pupils will be thinking about freedom, belief and faith and expressing some of their ideas through art. The event is co-ordinated by "Aid to the Church in Need," considering over 140 countries worldwide where people face tremendous difficulty in exercising religious freedom. The front of St Patrick's Church will be lit up in red at dusk on Wednesday and we invite parents and pupils to attend. In addition pupils are invited to wear something red on Wednesday in addition to their uniform (perhaps a red jumper or a red tie for the day!) These activities support our recent visits to local places of worship and promote our wish to better understand and respect all faiths.  Thank you for your continuing support.
