Welcome to St Patrick's Catholic Primary School

Headteacher's Welcome

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! 
 

Bishop Marcus

On Thursday 18th June, as part of our 150 year celebrations, we were honoured and delighted to welcome Bishop Marcus Stock to St Patrick's School.  He visited the children and celebrated Mass along with Fr Malachy Larkin (Bishop's Secretary) Fr Ian Smith (Parish Priest) and Fr Christopher Angel.  Current staff and governors along with past staff enjoyed a celebratory lunch with Bishop Marcus.  The children and staff presented Bishop Marcus with a hand made cross (Fruits and Gifts of the Holy Spirit) to mark the occasion.

The Good Shepherd Appeal

We were pleased to attend a special service held at Leeds Cathedral on 1st May, for The Good Shepherd Appeal.  The service was led by Bishop Marcus Stock, and we were proud to present him with a cheque for over £1600 for Catholic Care, following our Lenten fundraising.  Hannah Hirst (Y5M,) Raefel Andrews (Y4F,) and Abigail Jones (Y3L) represented our school and were excited to meet Bishop Marcus in person.
 

Foundation Stage

In Foundation Stage we have been reading ‘Not a Stick’ by Antoinette Portis. We have has so much fun making our own pictures and photographs, but they are NOT sticks! Can you guess what they are?
