Welcome Back to Everyone

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are looking forward to welcoming all the children back to school on Thursday 3rd September. To follow guidance, the children will be in class bubbles and will have different start and end times.  We have written to Reception and Nursery parents separately as they will have a more gradual start to the year.

Please ensure only one adult brings your children onto the school site. Please could each  adult drop your child off at the correct door at the correct time and follow our one way system around school. This is to keep you safe.

If you are using a push chair please come to school at the correct time but bring your children to the front door near Mrs Webbon’s office.

 It is vital that children and parents arrive at the correct doors at the right time. This is for the safety of your family. Parents should not stay on the school site for any longer than is absolutely necessary and must keep 2 metres apart at all times.

No parents should enter the school building. If you need to discuss something, please ring the office.

 Strategies to protect your children and yourselves:

  • People who are ill must stay at home – if you or anyone in your household are experiencing Covid 19 symptoms - please DO NOT COME ONTO THE SCHOOL SITE.
  • School lunches will be sandwiches for the first few weeks. Lunches will be eaten in the classrooms for the first few weeks.
  • Children will have staggered breaks and lunches so that they have contact only with children in their class or bubble.

Our first priority is the safety of our children, yourselves and our staff so any changes will be made very gradually and will be reviewed constantly.

 I look forward to seeing you on Thursday 3rd September,

 

Mrs Mitchell

Welcome

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.
