Through our 'Catholic Life' pages we aim to share with you and celebrate

many of the elements which make our Catholic school so special.


'Our Mission at St Malachy's Catholic Primary School is to provide and enriching, high quality education, where we lean, love and grow with Christ at the centre, so that each individual feels nurtured and can achieve their full potential.'

Our Catholic Ethos underpins every part of our school life and cannot be separated, from fundraising to lessons to enrichment to clubs.

All we do is in honour and praise of Christ who has made us all unique with gifts and talents to be recognised, developed and shared.

Festival of Crosses

At St Malachy's Primary School we are delighted to share our latest display in St Malachy's Church.  To celebrate the Festival of Crosses, we have produced a large cross decorated with lillies and some of the Lenten Promises made by children at our school.  Next to the large cross, we have written about the suffering that Jesus went through.  Finally, we produced lots of brightly coloured crosses.  Lent is an important time of the year, where we can reflect upon the sacrifice that Jesus made for all of us and how we can live the gospel message by loving God and others.  We continue with our journey of faith and look forward to celebrating Jesus' glorious resurrection.   

Catholic Care

Our school uses the Diocese of Leeds' own charity Catholic Care to support vulnerable children and families. Many of our children and their families have benefited and continue to benefit from the support provided by Catholic Care.

Every year we fundraise for the Good Shepherd, which supports the excellent work work of Catholic Care.

Our Catholic Care Social Worker in School is: 

Lesley Saunders

Lesley is in school on a Tuesday.

If you feel you or your child could benefit from support please contact the school.
