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

It has been another very busy two weeks at school!  We have had family events for Reception, Year 2 and Year 3, thank you to all those who came and joined in with the activities.  We also had our end of year summer disco this week. The children always look so grown up in their disco outfits, they had a great time and enjoyed the popcorn and sweets, they left with glitter tattoos and brightly coloured hair plaits too!

Thank you also for coming to our sports day and supporting the FOSFS fair.  Your support at these events is always appreciated, especially in terms of how many children seem delighted to soak the teachers each year!  We can't fit everything into sports day that we would like so KS2 enjoyed a separate afternoon of obstacle races and       competition, well done to all the children who took part.

Year 5 had a very interesting and inspiring science and engineering workshop from Laura and Joanne two local engineers.  The whole workshop was fascinating, the children were very interested in the supply chain process and the different jobs and careers that that particular aspect can offer.  Year 5 have also had their end of year Whitby trip.  The children love Whitby and do many things in just one day, the highlight was paddling (getting soaked) in the sea!

Year 3 have had a workshop from Fair and Funky, an environmental organisation that aims to promote recycling.  This workshop had a focus on plastic; the impact plastic has on the environment and how we can use less plastic, especially single use plastic.  Year 3 also enjoyed a day at Cliffe House last week, they completed an orienteering course and learnt to cook on a fire.

Well done to Matthews who are not only this half terms house winners but are also the winners of the whole year!  They will enjoy a woodland adventure treat next week.

I would like to give a special thank you to George Brugnoli, Frankie and Lottie Knights grandad, he came into school and through an assembly did an inspiring presentation to the whole school about his career and  voluntary roles he holds and has held in the world of boxing.  His story about his dream of going to the Olympics and how he         eventually got there and the people he has met along the way was both fascinating and moving.  We are very grateful to him for giving up his time to come and give us such an amazing talk.  George has left a trophy for us to use in anyway we would like.  His talk really reflected our school motto so we are hoping to use the trophy in some way that is related to our motto.

We are all really looking forward to Jump Up week next week.  It is such a nice way to end the year by being excited about the next year!

And finally we wish all our Year 5 children the very best for their next adventure!  The Year 5 class have been a joy to have at Shepley First School, they are such an amazing group of young people who have flung themselves into every aspect of school life.  We have had such a fantastic year with them and will be very sad indeed to see them leave.
