Dear Parents,

Thank you for all the cake donations for our Macmillan cake sale. We have been overwhelmed by your generosity.  I hope the children enjoyed their cakes today and I know the money will be welcomed by the Macmillan charity.

Thank you also for your donations for our Cafod ‘Go Bright – Go Green Day’ all the donations will go to those most affected by climate change.

 Thank you again for supporting this cause.

 The children are encouraged to drink water during the school day to keep them hydrated. Children can bring a water bottle with a non-spill lid which will be sent home each day for a wash and must be returned to school every day.  The children can only have water in their bottles - no juice or flavoured water please.

 Over the holidays remember if your child or one of the family begin with any of the Covid symptoms.

  • A high temperature
  • A new persistent cough
  • Loss of taste or smell or any change to their taste or smell

Please book a PCR test and isolate until you have the result.

 If you feel generally unwell with other symptoms to those above, Public Health are still recommending a PCR test whatever the symptoms are as they can be different in different individuals. If the test is positive, then a 10-day isolation is required you will receive guidance with the result of your test.

I hope you all have a lovely half term and thank you for your ongoing support.

Mrs Mitchell

St Patrick’s is a Roman Catholic Voluntary Aided school situated near the town centre of Oldham. We are a one form entry primary school with a part time nursery. There are currently 222 pupils on roll.   St Patrick’s serves the parish of Our Lady & St Patrick and we are in the Werneth Ward.  We are a very diverse school with children from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds and we have approximately 20 different home languages.   St Patrick’s is a happy, caring school where everyone tries their best. We don’t expect anybody to be perfect but we encourage hard work and mutual respect. We use ‘Christ as our vision’ and endeavour to live as Jesus taught us, to love one another and to be forgiving.   Children who join our school become part of the St Patrick’s family along with their families and our parish.
