Our Headteacher Welcome

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

    Reminder Spring Bank holiday dates

    Good morning,
    Following a query regarding the holiday dates for the coming Spring Bank holiday, I have attached the term dates document for this school year which can also be found on the school website under the "Our Parent" tab and "Our Term Dates". Can I please confirm that we finish for this half term on Friday 27th May and return on Tuesday 7th June as we have our Queen's Jubilee bank holiday on Monday 6th June.
    Please do have a look at the website which also has the term dates for the next academic year - especially if you are booking holidays as we CANNOT authorise holidays in term time following DFE and government attendance policy expectations and the governors and I have noticed a significant increase in term time holiday requests. Term time absence (particularly through holidays) is detrimental to pupil learning and progress, especially following the disruption of the pandemic over the last two years.
    Kind regards
    Clare Moulding (Headteacher)
