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

This half term is going so quickly, the weeks are whizzing by! Thank you for all your support, you help us in so many ways whether it is practical, financial, bringing us things from home you don’t need anymore and so on. It is really appreciated.

Next Wednesday at 7pm FOSFS are holding their AGM.  Please come along, we need you!  We always need parents to help, bring new ideas and organise events.  The money raised by FOSFS buys us so many essential resources we need in school.  We are in need of many things but really pressing for us is new ICT equipment, we just don’t have the money to get what we need. We always have a wish list, the wish list used to be ‘nice to haves’ but now it is for basic things that every school and every child should have. Joining FOSFS is a great way to volunteer your time to support your local school and local community.  Our first event this year will be our Halloween disco, this is a great event to start your involvement with FOSFS!

We also need volunteers in school. We need volunteers across school but particularly in our older classes. We would ask that where possible you commit to a half term so teachers can plan for you.  This could be half a day a week, a couple of half days or more. It is whatever you can commit to. We ask that you are willing to be flexible, have a very supportive, kind and caring nature with children and love to help assist children with whatever activity it is they are doing.  Part of volunteering is also helping create displays and helping the teacher with general organisational tasks, it might even be Muddy Puddle time!  If you are interested then please let Mrs Murray in the office know what time commitment you can give.  You will also need to complete a DBS check which Mrs Murray can advise on.  If you can give us some time it would be really, really appreciated. 

Please see the diary date section of the newsletter for details of events coming up including parents evening.
