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. In January 2022, we joined the family of schools within the Blessed Peter Snow Catholic Multi-Academy Trust, part of the Diocese of Leeds. 

We believe our school to be a distinctive, inspiring and special place, where children, parents, staff, governors and our wider community including our family of Trust schools, 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 Academy is the teaching of the Catholic faith and we do this by placing Christ at the centre of everything we do. 

The safeguarding of all our children is paramount and we work hard to ensure that we know our children and their families well. We have robust safeguarding procedures in place and myself, my Deputy and our SENDCO are the Designated Leads for Safeguarding.

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. 

We are very proud of all our children - the progress they make and all that they achieve under the guidance and care of our wonderful staff team.

If you are interested in finding out more about our school and why it is such a special place please do not hesitate to contact the office to make an appointment to come for a visit.
