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

Year 5 have begun transition visits to Kirkburton Middle School.  This year the children will be going through the year as well as to their Jump Up week at the end of the school year.  The children are    going up in small groups and are experiencing a range of different activities such as Art, PE and       Science.  The children have been able to choose the activity they are most interested in and have   really enjoyed the ones they have been on so far.

Year 4 boys and girls football teams took part in a tournament last week organised by the Huddersfield Town Foundation at Soccer City.  Both teams played brilliantly and showed great team spirit and determination. They had to play 7 games in total so it was a tough afternoon. The children also got chance to see the premiership trophy and have their photo taken with it.  The boys went on to win their side of the competition after a nail biting final which resulted in a draw, extra time which resulted in a draw and then sudden death penalties – which we won!  How the boys kept their cool and their nerve I don’t know!  Thanks to all the parents and family members that came to support their children.

Year 1 have been to Shelley College this week to take part in a mutli-skills event.  The children took part in a range of activities with children from other schools within the pyramid and had a great time!  Miss Webster was so proud of their super attitudes and how they all got stuck in to whatever activity they were doing.

Miss Pearson, Miss Webster and I are really looking forward to joining in the FOSFS PJ and Popcorn evening tonight!  We look forward to seeing many of the children joining us for a lovely evening   watching the film ‘Sing’.

Don’t forget to look out for our parents evening dates next half term and our KS2 show dates.

Thank you for your support.

Mrs Bowman
