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

What a lovely two weeks we have had. Last week we celebrated everything that Year 5 had achieved during their time at Shepley First School and had a fantastic last day with the Year 5 children and their families. The leaver’s assembly was full of memories, singing and dancing, the children were incredible and performed  beautifully. We then had a nice trip to Yummy Yorkshire and the children spent the afternoon getting their school shirts signed be each other and staff. I had a message from Mr Johnson the Headteacher at Kirkburton Middle on Wednesday to say how impressed he and the staff were at the high standard of work in the children’s books from Shepley, we were all really proud of this feedback!

This week has been great fun, the children have been very creative during Jump Up week producing amongst many other things some lovely art, design and technology work. All the children have had tennis taster sessions on the tennis courts this week led by Natalie, a tennis coach from Shepley Tennis Club. It has been nice to see the children at the Tennis Club enjoying the facilities and getting some excellent coaching. Our new Class 4 had their first swimming lesson in preparation for next year and everyone has also enjoyed some Muddy Puddle times with their new teachers.

Thank you all for the lovely comments we have received this week by e-mail, cards and on the school report acknowledgement slips. It is really appreciated and all the staff have been quite overwhelmed by the kindness and thanks we have received.

Our new Reception children have completed their transition week, they have settled in brilliantly and really impressed us when they stayed for lunch with their independence! Mrs Mckinnell and her team can’t wait to get started with their new class in September!

We all love working at Shepley, the children are a credit to you all, it is a pleasure to work with lovely people and lovely children in a lovely setting. We hope you all have a fantastic summer and we are really looking forward to  another great year at Shepley First School when we return in September.

Mrs Bowman
