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

    Protocols for the beginning of half term

    Good morning,
    I hope your half term break has started well.
    Please take time to read the attached letter with details regarding the protocols for the first few days of the holidays should your child begin displaying symptoms, which we hope does not happen of course.
    Following these protocols is essential so that we can keep our whole school community as safe as possible as infections in Kirklees remain one of the highest in the country.
    With kind regards
    Mrs Clare Moulding

    A letter with information from Kirklees Council

    Good afternoon,
    Please find attached a letter with information that Kirklees Council has asked me to send out to all families.
    With Kirklees COVID infection rates one of the highest it is vital we all do our bit to lower the rate and keep our friends and family as safe as possible. Only highlighted this week by our first class closure due to a positive case of COVID. Please take the time to read the letter.

    With kind regards
    Mrs Clare Moulding
