St Patrick's Catholic Primary School

Welcome to St Patrick's Catholic Primary School


Nursery Admissions September 2020

If you are wishing to talk to us about a Nursery place for your child for September then please ring our school office, see below for number. We do have a small number of places still available.The office staff or EYFS Leader Miss Blanchfield, can chat with you about your needs and advise you about the paperwork we need from you. This current situation of lockdown makes it impossible for us to hold meetings and invite you to look round our setting, but rest assured that as always, we will work hard to ensure your child gets off to the very best start with us, feels safe and loved and has fun! Have a look around our website, particularly the EYFS class page which will give you some idea about life at our school.

We hope to hear from you!    Stay safe everyone!

Mrs Moulding's Message

Monday 13th July

 Hello boys and girls and parents of course,

I cannot believe we have arrived at the final week of the academic year.

To all the boys and girls who have been at home for so long - we have missed you

greatly and would like to say a huge well done and thank you for all the wonderful learning that

you have been doing at home. We know it has been a very challenging time and incredibly hard to 

maintain the focus on your learning whilst not being at school - only one week of home learning to go!

The staff and I cannot wait to see you again in September.

To our parents and carers - a huge thank you for everything you have done to support school and your

children during this most challenging of times. I hope the variety of learning activities that the staff have

uploaded to the website each week have supported you in keeping a routine in learning whilst at home. I hope you have

all been able to read my final newsletter and the letter with the arrangements for September

will be coming out later this week once it is agreed by the LA and governors.

To our wonderful Year 6 - our Leavers 2020

We are so proud of all the achievements you have made throughout your time at St Patrick's. You are such

a super group of pupils who have matured into wonderful young people who are absolutely ready

for your next journey - the challenges and excitement that High school will bring.

We are so sorry that this year has not been the year we all had planned but cannot wait to see you all 

for the final three days of the school year. We have many wonderful things planned for you all!




Kind Regards always

Mrs Clare Moulding


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
