Welcome to St Patrick's Catholic Primary School



Our Headteacher Welcome

May I offer a very warm welcome to St. Patrick's Catholic Primary School, Birstall.

Our school, founded in 1877, has a proud tradition of serving the community of Birstall and surrounding areas with many families sending several generations of children to be nurtured and supported by us.

We believe our school to be a distinctive, inspiring and special place, where children, parents, staff, governors and our wider community work in partnership to enable our pupils to achieve their potential, academically, emotionally, socially and spiritually whilst growing in their relationship with God and knowing that we are all unique and special. We recognise that an essential role we have here at St Patrick's Catholic Primary is the teaching of the Catholic faith and we do this by placing Christ at the centre of everything we do. 

Through working closely with our parents and carers we endeavour to ensure, that both you and your child have a very happy and memorable time throughout our journey together.

We want all our children to find school life exciting, challenging and enjoyable whilst feeling safe, secure and valued.  

God bless

Mrs Clare Moulding

    COVID19 Virtual Meetings Policy and Expectations

    Good afternoon Parents and Carers,
    With the new Remote Learning procedures into full flow following the lockdown and the start of regular remote learning virtual meetings, I have attached our COVID19 Virtual Meetings Policy and Expectations which has been updated from the Zoom policy from earlier in the year as we now use Microsoft TEAMs for the majority of our virtual meetings. Please make sure you remind yourself and your child/ren of the expectations and etiquette when attending a virtual meeting.
    I thank you for your continued support and partnership working I hope that you and your child/ren are using and enjoying the range of remote learning we have put in place to ensure continued learning and progress for all our pupils.
    With kind regards
    Mrs Clare Moulding
