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.

First of all I would like to say a huge thank you for your support and understanding during our recent snow closures.  It is always difficult for everyone and we all appreciate your understanding.  We really do not want to see any more snow as we have a busy few weeks ahead! 

The KS2 children are very busy preparing for their show, rehearsals are in full swing with the singing and acting sounding fantastic.  Next week we will be supporting Sport Relief.  A letter has been sent home regarding our plans for the week. The children can bring a donation in for sport relief any day next week.  The teachers are busy practising for their own inter-house competition which will take place in assembly on Tuesday!  We will also be having all our usual Easter activities.  We will be holding a decorate an egg competition, having an Easter bun sale and an Easter Egg Raffle.  On the final day of term we will have our popular FOSFS fundraiser Break The Rules Day! 

Reception will be taking care of a delivery of eggs next week which will soon turn into taking care of a number of chicks!

Following our Assessment Information evenings the teachers are trialling a new termly report which, if our trial is successful, we will roll out from September 2018.  This would mean you will receive termly information on your child’s progress and attainment.  Thank you for all the feedback sheets following the evenings, they have been very useful. 

Thank you for retuning your parental questionnaires.  We have received a lot already which is great, if you haven’t completed the questionnaire please do and return it to school.  The children are also completing a questionnaire in school at the moment.

And finally, a reminder that the children have until Thursday 29th March to return their mural competition entries.  It is a fabulous opportunity for them to see their design turn into a mural and assist with the painting of the mural should they be one of the winners!
