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
