If you have difficulties accessing Google Classrooms, please go onto the school website, put your cursor on to 'Children' on the tool bar, then scroll down to 'Remote Learning Guidance', click on the Google Classroom Link on this page and you will see lots of information and video clips to help you use this site.

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.
