Welcome for Reception Parents 2020

13th July 2020


Dear Parents,


We are delighted to invite your child to start Reception on Thursday 3rd September.  The children’s time in school will be gradually increased over the first two weeks of term.  This will allow your child to settle into life in our Reception class. Mrs Farnell from our Nursery class will work with Mrs Battersby and Mrs Olive in Reception for the first few days to help the children settle in.


On Thursday 3rd September and Friday 4th September all the children will come to school in the morning through our front gate but one group will stay for lunch on Thursday and one group will stay to lunch on Friday. This will allow staff more time to support the children in selecting and eating their lunch together for the first time.  At the end of the session please collect your child from the Reception door.

We must remind you that these dates are correct at this time but may change if necessary due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Any changes will be placed on the website and parents will be informed by text.

We would appreciate it if only one adult would accompany each child to school to minimize the number adults in the school grounds and in the classroom.  Please remember to follow our one way system when you enter and exit the school grounds.


We look forward to seeing you soon,

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.
