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

Welcome back to the new year and the Spring Term!  I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.  We had a great last week with parties, our annual pantomime and our delicious Christmas dinner! It all seems such a long time ago now.

This half term we have lots of exciting topics in school from studying South America, Australia, the  Romans and the Egyptians and even Superheros!  I have seen some fabulous art work this week in Year 2 and Year 5 and many children have been excited to start their new class novel this week.

We have some dates for later in the Spring Term for you on this newsletter including the KS2 Show    evenings, Parents Evening, World Book Day and some class trips to Cliffe House. FOSFS have some fundraisers this term too so please look out for those coming up.

On Friday January 25th our first Children’s Achievement Records will be sent home.  These will include the most recent test and teacher assessment information about your child and a teacher and child comment. We hope you will find these useful and informative. We hope to build on these each year adding information that you the parents tell us you would like about your children.

Thank you to all those who responded positively to our requests to not park on the Keep Clear area and the white lines, your support is very much appreciated. There are still a few parents who are ignoring this request and parking there every day.  We would politely request, again, that for the safety of the children people park in the correct areas.

We hope we will not have a second Beast from the East this year but just in case we do get any snow please be aware that any school closure will be communicated by text message as early as possible in the morning, wherever possible before 7.30am.  School closures are also logged on the Kirklees Council website.  We would always endeavour to stay open.  When the weather is icy or snowy and we are open the caretaker will clear paths as best he can around the school.  We would always rather people take their time getting to school in bad weather than rush and risk an accident.  Please ring us if you are ever having difficulty in bad weather and we will always try to help where we can.  Hopefully we will sail through the rest of winter with no weather issues!

I would like to thank you for all your kind messages and support, it is very much appreciated by all at Shepley.

Mrs Bowman
