Respect, Resilience, Responsibility

A warm welcome to St Patrick’s RC Primary School


Dear Parents and Carers,

I am proud to welcome you to St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Primary School website. I hope your visit will begin to give you all an insight into the life of our Catholic school.

The children surprise me every day with their happy smiles, enthusiasm and eagerness to “learn, grow and shine” together. St Patrick’s is a wonderful place to learn and develop – academically, spiritually, morally and socially each and every day.

As well as providing a strong Catholic education and ethos, where we strive to teach the children to bear witness to Christ, listen to His word, welcome one another, participate in acts of worship and look after their welfare, we also ensure that we deliver a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum which challenges every child, from those who are able, gifted and talented to those with Special Educational Needs. We recognise that your child is indeed unique, made in the image and likeness of Christ.

St. Patrick’s is a very happy school where everyone treats each other with the utmost dignity and respect. We seek to foster a kind, caring and family atmosphere and encourage the children to act responsibly.

The children of St Patrick’s behave in an exemplary way and their attitudes to learning are exceptional. They are eager to learn, make progress and do their very best. I am extremely proud of them all!

I am also fortunate to have a talented and hardworking staff, supported by an excellent Governing Board, who provide an outstanding quality of care and encourage all our children to aspire to achieve excellent results and achievements.

I feel confident that we – staff, governors, parents, Fr Philip the parishioners of Our Lady and St Patrick’s, and the Diocese of Salford will be able to work together for the benefit of our children in a spirit of mutual trust, respect and understanding. We hope that every child achieves their true potential and success at St Patrick’s, taking with them treasured memories of their primary school years

Please do not hesitate to come into school and discuss any aspects of your child’s education and development. We warmly welcome you.

God Bless

Mrs Catherine Maddocks

We are a Catholic school where life, learning, faith and culture are one and where everyone is supported in their journey in becoming the person God wants them to be.

We are a community that worship together and witness to the teachings of Jesus and the Gospel.

as I learn,
grow and shine
