Shepley First School

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

Music, singing, acting and dancing are now features of everyday life at Shepley as KS2 prepare for their annual show!  The children are doing a fantastic job in their rehearsals as the show dates creep ever closer.  The  donations of cardboard are being transformed into scenery and props are being made, borrowed and bought.

Thank you for your support with the show and for responding so quickly to Mrs Mckinnell’s letter requesting  donations of items we are short of.  You will be aware of the plight of schools at the moment financially from the media.  There are many stories of schools struggling with cuts and increased costs both on the news and in    newspapers.  We are no different.  Together with the governors and Mrs Gotham the School Business Manager, we have been considering the financial position we find ourselves in, we do have to find ways of not only saving even more money but also of generating income.  I will update you over the coming months on this situation. In the meantime if we do need any resources we will let you know and any donations will be very welcome and hugely appreciated.  I am very grateful to my amazing team who create such a lovely environment for the children by being imaginative, creative and resourceful and who will roll their sleeves up and do any job required in school.

On a different note, well done to the Year 3 boys football team who came a very respectable third at the recent pyramid football tournament and to the Year 2 boys football team who won their tournament. Thank you to all the parents for transporting and supporting the teams!

Your continued support of our parking difficulties is really appreciated.  Your support has come in many different ways and together we can ensure that everyone realises the impact that their inconsiderate parking has on    others and the safety of the children even if it takes a little while.

We will soon be enjoying our annual Easter traditions of our Easter Egg Raffle and our Decorate An Egg Competition.  These will be held in the last week but donations of Easter Eggs are welcome from Wednesday 27th March and the raffle tickets will be on sale from Monday 1st April!

I look forward to seeing you all soon at parents evening and/or the KS2 Show.

Mrs Bowman
