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

We have been busy reminding the children this week that the bright shiny thing in the sky is called the sun and that the sky is blue!  We have all appreciated some brighter weather this week after a very long spell of grey, wet weather!

Reception had a fabulous time during their balance-ability sessions recently.  They really enjoyed honing their skills and negotiating courses on the playground.  Well done Reception!

We have had two school improvement visits in recent weeks.  The first was a safeguarding audit which is a Local Authority check of all our safeguarding policies, procedures and practices.  We are compliant with all guidelines and as always it is good to have external advice and support from our safeguarding team in Kirklees.

We also had our annual school improvement visit from our Kirklees Learning Partner.  I am pleased to say that our data outcomes for children are all good and there was plenty to celebrate about the school’s successes.

The children looked fantastic in their World Book Day costumes, it is always lovely to remind the children of the   importance of reading for a variety of different reasons and most of all for enjoyment!   

We have had great fun today with our sport relief challenge!  There are some muddy children!  Thank you for all your donations for sport relief we have raised £124.50! See the photos below.

I am sending a letter today to all parents about coronavirus and what measures we are taking or planning to take should it directly affect our school.

Please see information about our ‘decorate an egg’ competition and Easter raffle which will be upon us very soon.

The KS2 children are in full swing with their rehearsals, it is great to see children thrive on stage and get into their characters!

Thank you for all your support and I look forward to seeing you at parents evening and/or the KS2 show.

Mrs Bowman
