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.

We are looking forward to all our Christmas celebrations over the next couple of weeks. This will start with our Christmas Fair tonight after school.  A big thank you to FOSFS for organising this and all the parents who have offered to help tonight.  It will be a lovely event and we look forward to seeing you after school.  Year 5 have been working hard on their Christmas crafts this week so don’t forget to pay them a visit later!

I had the pleasure of accompanying the choir to Cliffe House this week. They sang 9 Christmas songs to diners enjoying a Christmas lunch.They sounded beautiful and had lovely comments about their performance, especially as they knew all the words to all the songs!  Well done to the choir and thank you to Miss Pearson, Miss Lomas and Mrs Hough for teaching the choir at lunchtimes over the last few weeks.  The choir will also perform at the Christingle service at St Paul’s church this Sunday at 6pm and will sing at the library next Friday at 2.15pm. 

Next week we will hold our Reception and Key Stage 1 Christmas performances, the children have been rehearsing and can’t wait to perform next week. I am sure some of you know all the songs by now!  Some of the pre-school children and staff will be coming to watch Reception’s dress rehearsal, we look forward to welcoming them into school.  All the children in school will have the opportunity to watch the Reception and Key Stage 1 dress rehearsals.

In the final week of term all the classes will enjoy a Christmas party, each class will receive a letter about that soon. The children will also watch a pantomime on the final Thursday afternoon, this is funded by your generous donations through the Christmas card orders we took earlier this term.  And .. on the last day we will all enjoy our Christmas dinner, cooked by our fantastic school kitchen team and combine this with Christmas jumper day!

Thank you for all the generous donations for our Reverse advent calendars, we will deliver everything to the Welcome Centre at the end of the last week. The children and you are making a huge difference to families in Huddersfield this Christmas through this.

Look out for dates for our parents assessment information evenings which we will hold next term, a letter will come out next week. 

And finally, with bad weather forecast in the near future please ensure that school have your up to date mobile numbers in case we need to contact you regarding school closures.  We will always        endeavour to keep school open and would only close as a last resort.

Thank you for your support and I look forward to seeing you all over the next few weeks.
