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!

    Zoom Classes
    Thank you to all the children who have attended the Zoom lessons so far! Zoom Classes will continue at the same time each day this week with the same Meeting ID and Passwords to make it as simple as possible. Please remind your child that they should then complete the work on the school website an upload it to the blog for feedback. All children attending Zoom MUST have their camera on for the whole lesson. This is to safeguard everyone. We need to see their faces please! If the camera is not on, the user will be removed as we need to be certain who is watching our online lessons.

    School Closure and Key Workers
    Please find attached a letter following the Government's announcement this evening. Most children need to stay at home tomorrow. We understand that this is stressful and incredibly difficult for families, but the main priority for everyone is to stay safe. We will be in touch tomorrow with the next steps for all children who need to stay home and are sorry for the upset that many will no doubt be feeling. Rebecca Holmes Head of School

    Warm Clothing and Layers
    We have previously informed Parents that the school building is colder than usual due to the need to have the windows open at all times to improve ventilation and to reduce the risk of infection from Covid-19. Unfortunately, some children are still not dressing appropriately and are complaining throughout the day of being very cold. It is very important that your child dresses warmly for school, as the children cannot concentrate as well if they are feeling cold. We would prefer the children not to have to wear their outdoor coats in the classrooms, but we want the children to be comfortable. Please talk to your child and make sure they are wearing appropriate layers to school each day. We would strongly recommend: Vests or T-shirts under shirts Arms covered in long-sleeves Long trousers or tights Jumpers or cardigans in school. Thank you.
