Welcome to our school

We hope you find our web-site informative. If, having looked through it, you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate in contacting us or telephoning to arrange a visit.

Our popular and successful primary school for pupils aged 4 – 10 is situated in the village of Shepley and is a member of the highly popular and very successful three-tier Shelley Pyramid of schools within Kirklees.

We aim to create a positive learning environment where our children feel included and valued, happy and secure, where they experience and develop high self-esteem and confidence in their own abilities.

I am sure as you walk around Shepley First you will see why we are really proud of our children, staff and our school.

Dear Parents

It has been such a lovely week at Shepley. The Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children have all         performed their Christmas Shows for parents and family members over the last few days.  The children all did brilliantly on what can be both an exciting and nervous experience for them.  Well done to all the children! 

The school choir have also performed brilliantly at the Christmas Fayre and at Shepley library today. They learn every song by heart and always sing beautifully. They have one more performance at the Christingle Service at the Methodist Church this Sunday at 6pm.

A huge thank you to all those who came to the Christmas Fayre last Friday, it was a huge success and fun was had by all.  We raised approximately £2000 which is amazing! FOSFS will confirm the final figure next week, thank you so much for your generosity.  FOSFS always do a fabulous job of organising and running the fayre and the time they give to this is greatly appreciated.  Year 5 once again ran a great craft room and raised a terrific £371.34 to go towards their end of year Whitby trip.  The standard of the crafts was amazing, a huge thank you to the families of the Year 5 children who helped them to have such a lovely range of things to sell.

Thank you to those who have supported our plea for considerate and legal parking on Firth Street.    Unfortunately there are still a few cars ignoring this request.  The police have been to school for a meeting about the issue and did challenge a few people whilst they were here.  They will be working with us to see what we can do together to improve this situation.

Next week will be festive and fun!  On Monday we will be having a French themed Christmas day in school.  During the week each class will have a Christmas party and on Thursday the children will be watching the pantomime Snow White in school.  And finally on Friday we will have our Christmas  Jumper Day and Christmas Dinner!  It will be a great week!

On behalf of all the staff at Shepley First we want to thank you for your support and wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year!  We look forward to seeing everyone in the New Year.

Mrs Bowman
