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!

    Next Steps
    It is a strange 'Sunday Night' feeling when 'Monday Morning' will be so different for so many. For children attending school tomorrow, we ask that they come through the main entrance door at 9:00 (unless attending Breakfast Club.) Please wear school uniform and note that lunch will be the normal arrangements. Hometime will be at the usual time on the KS1 Playground. For children staying at home, we know that Parents are anxious to continue with learning. Class Teachers will be uploading weekly activities onto the school website. Please check 'Activities for Home.' The first work will be uploaded by Wednesday. This is a difficult time for all of our School Community, but we will continue to do all we can for our children and families. Thank you all for your kind words and messages to our staff over the last week. We very much appreciate your support.

    School Closure and Key Workers
    As you know, school will close today, until further notice. School will, however, be open on Monday for children of Key Workers, who are critical to the country. Please remember: If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading. Please find attached a letter outlining the Government advice on Key Workers and how to inform school if you require a place next week.

Coronavirus Public Health Information


School is now operating on a skeleton staff each day and providing essential child care only.  We are not following a curriculum.  

Every child who can be safely cared for at home must be.  Please help us to keep our staff safe by staying away from school where you can.  

The only reasons to leave home are:

  • To shop for basic necessities or pick up medicine
  • To travel to work when you absolutely cannot work from home
  • To exercise once a day, alone or with members of your household
  • Do not meet others, even friends or family

Stay at home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours.

To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.  Stay at home.

Call 111 if you cannot get help online.  First use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out waht to do: https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19/
