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.

Thank you for all your support this half term, many of you have had poorly children and we know how hard it is when they are ill.  Thank you for letting us know when they are too ill to come to school and for letting the teachers know when they are not feeling 100%.  Let us hope that the cold weather and illnesses are behind us and when we return after the half term everyone is well and the weather is  warmer!

Thank you to all those who attended one of our assessment meetings this term.  We had 3 different meetings, one for Reception parents, one for Year 2 parents specifically about SATs and one for parents of children from years 1 to 5.  The feedback we have received has been really useful. 

We have had some lovely events recently for the children. Reception and Year 1 thoroughly enjoyed a visit from the fire fighters from Skelmanthorpe, Year 1 have enjoyed a trip to Shelley College where they took part in a sports morning with other Year 1 children from other local schools.  The same day they also enjoyed a trip to St Paul’s Church.  Year 4 and 5 took part in our annual French café event yesterday.  Miss Bartle did a fantastic job of transforming the hall into a French café, providing all the food, drink and authentic French menus!

Next half term is a very busy one.  Please keep checking the newsletters for details of events.  We have Parents Evenings, the KS2 show, World Book Day and many Easter activities.

Just a reminder about our two art competitions ongoing at the moment.  The first art competition is being run by FOSFS and has a deadline of 27th February. All entries will be displayed at parents evening.  The second competition is being run by Mrs Middleton and has a deadline of 29th March.  Mrs Middleton has very kindly offered to create some murals for us in our bike sheds.  The winning children will be able to work with Mrs Middleton to paint their winning design onto the bike sheds!  These are   fantastic opportunities for the children to show off their creative talents!

Have a lovely half term holiday.

Mrs Bowman
