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 Check SchoolPing Regularly


It has come to our attention over the last few weeks that many parents are not accessing SchoolPing. Please ensure that you download and log into the App, as all school information is distributed to parents via SchoolPing.  This is especially important during this time, as we will be announcing our plans for September via SchoolPing, including your child's new start and finish times. 

Please contact the school office if you require assistance with your log-in details.

Thank you.

Pupil Coronavirus Survey - Years 5 to 11

Kirklees Council’s Public Health team is asking young people aged 9-16 to tell us about their experiences of Coronavirus and how lockdown has affected the way they feel and behave. This will help the council and schools plan how much (and what type of) support young people may need, and will enable schools to better prepare for all pupils returning in the new school year. All questions are optional, and your child can leave out any question they don’t want to answer. The information given by your child will not allow us to identify them. Data gathered through the survey will be held as long as necessary to carry out a full analysis of the findings. The survey will run until the end of July 2020, and a summary of findings will be published in August. Further details will be available via Involve (https://www.kirklees.gov.uk/involve).


We would be grateful if you could encourage your child to complete the survey, by clicking on this link: https://wh.snapsurveys.com/s.asp?k=159491452652


For information, the survey covers the following:

•            Age, school year, which area of Kirklees they live, whether the child has been going to school during lockdown

•            How young people were feeling at the beginning of lockdown and more recently

•            Whether they have been doing a range of activities more or less often

•            Any help they have had to make them feel better during lockdown

•            The important issues and concerns about going back to school in September

•            General information about gender, ethnicity, special educational need and caring responsibilities
