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.

Christmas Fair - Friday 6th December 3.30 - 5.00pm

Headteacher's Blog

We are approaching that time of year again ’Christmas’! It’s lovely to hear the Reception and KS1 children rehearsing and practicing songs for their Christmas performances. They are sounding brilliant, I can’t wait to see the final performances. The choir are rehearsing songs for the Christingle at St Pauls Church and at Shepley Library. Year 5 are really busy making Christmas decorations and things to sell at the Christmas Fair. The money they raise helps towards their final trip in Year 5 to Whitby, which in        previous years has been thoroughly enjoyed by both pupils and staff.

Don’t forget that Monday 2nd December is a non-uniform day where the children can dress as they wish and bring a donation of chocolates or wine for the Christmas Fair. The fair is next Friday 6th Dec 3.30 - 5.00pm. FOSFS and volunteers are working really hard putting everything in place. We hope to see you all there.

Our Y5 athletics team got through to the final of the Sports Hall Athletics which was this week and they came 2nd! The team work was brilliant, they encouraged each other all the way through both events. Well done to you all and thank you to the parents that helped with transport and supporting the team!

Year 4 had a fantastic time on their residential at Cliffe House and did so much in a short space of time. They showed great team work and support for each other in the different activities they did and all put 100% effort into everything. The children as always were a credit to the school.

As we are talking about Christmas, I will just remind everyone that on the last day of term we will have a non-uniform/Christmas jumper day in school.  It is always a lovely day and the children look very festive for their Christmas dinner!  This is NOT a fundraiser, we have just had Children In Need and it’s the non-uniform on Monday for the Christmas Fair donations. Christmas jumpers are just for fun!

Please note all the dates on the calendar for Christmas activities taking place over the coming weeks.

As always your help and support is very much appreciated.

Mrs Adams
