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

Thank you to all those that attended the Village May Day celebrations and to the children who took part in some Maypole dances.  The year 4 children have been learning some traditional Maypole dances in school and have been joined in their practices by some Year 5 children who were keen to refresh their skills!

I would like to wish all the children taking part in the Neiley Races well with their next two runs. Miss Webster was really impressed by the huge effort they all put into the first one.  Well done to Clark Pattinson who came 4th in the pyramid cycling event. Two teams of year 5 pupils played in the Hi-5 Netball Competition in separate tournaments and one team came 1st and the other team came 2nd. Well done to both teams for playing so well, the teachers were really proud of your teamwork.

I am sorry to say that Miss Lomas is leaving Shepley First School.  We have a teacher recruitment day this Monday when hopefully we will find a brilliant teacher for our school.

We will be taking part again in  the Forget Me Not Trust's Round The World Challenge.  On Thursday 23rd May the children will all complete a sponsored mile walk to raise money for the charity.  The children will be coming home with Sponsor Forms and a letter about the route next week.

Next week we are taking Year 5 camping!  The children will take part in a two day, one night camping trip at Cliffe House.  They will complete a 10km walk, take part in a tree climb challenge as well as practice their carving skills amongst other activities.  They are very good at putting up their tents  after a few practices but we will see how good their washing up skills are too!

On Monday afternoon Matthews house team will enjoy a well earned 'sporty' treat on the playing fields and with it being only a 4 week half term every house point really does count at the moment!

It was lovely to see so many of you at our KS2 show and parents evenings recently and we look forward to seeing at our class family events and summer events soon.

Mrs Bowman
