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.

    Wellbeing Support from S2R
    S2R Create Space promotes positive mental health and well-being to people in our community. They believe that appropriate support and information will lead to progress towards personal resilience and meaningful life outcomes to those who experience mental health difficulties, their families and their carers. We know it can be difficult to connect with others, remain engaged and stay motivated during this challenging time. These Wellbeing Packs are designed around the 5 Ways to Wellbeing, which is a nationally recognised initiative that aims to keep you fit and healthy by concentrating on 5 key elements. Each S2R Wellbeing Pack will have different tips, tricks and activities for you to try including nature-based and craft ideas. ​https://www.s2r.org.uk/wellbeing-packs?utm_campaign=2e381ef3-dfe1-4705-bf85-9313ddecd4bb&utm_source=so&utm_medium=mail&cid=b0beedc1-534e-454d-b729-a688e538d36d

    There has been a significant increase in the number of children who are arriving late and after their staggered start time. Please remember that these staggered times are essential to ensure the children are kept within their own pods and not mixing with other groups. We cannot have children coming through the main entrance of school. Please be prompt at your child's time, as the children are only in their line for a few minutes before moving safely inside. This will keep your child and everyone else as safe as possible by ensuring they stay within their pod. Siblings: 8:50 Y5 and Y6: 9:00 Y3 and Y4: 9:05 EYFS, Y1, Y2: 9:10

    Yellow Zig Zags - No Stopping
    Thank you to the Parents who always drive and park safely around school. This morning, the Police had offered to do parking patrol on the Yellow Zig Zag lines outside of school. Yellow zig-zag lines outside schools indicate a length of road where stopping or waiting is strictly prohibited. The Highway Code states that you should keep these areas clear of stationary vehicles, even if picking up or setting down children. School understands that parking is difficult around all schools, however, we must keep our roads safe for the children. We ask that Parents do not stop their car on the Zig Zag lines or allow their children to step out into the road unsupervised. Please find a safe space to stop.
