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.
Thank you for your continuing support with life here at Shepley. You help is really appreciated, whether it is reading with your child, helping with homework tasks or supporting events organised by FOSFS. We have a lovely community here in the village and it is a pleasure to be part of it.
Christmas is fast approaching! We are starting our festive season on Monday with a pantomime. Through your support of FOSFS events they are able to provide this opportunity for all the children here at school. We are looking forward to watching Cinderella on Monday afternoon. There will also be Christmas shows for Reception and Key Stage One. Look out for a text informing you of when we will release the spare tickets for the shows. Please come along and support our Christmas Fair, thank you to FOSFS for organising the fair, this will be a fantastic event!
We will also be having Christmas parties for the children and of course Christmas jumper day and Christmas dinner! We are looking forward to supporting the local library and Cliffe House at this time of you by carol singing at these venues. We will also be supporting the Christingle service at the Methodist Church.
In the new year I am very much looking forward to working with my new Deputy Head, Mrs Adams. Also in the new year we will be announcing our parent events for Spring and Summer. We will be having class assemblies and also some opportunities for you to come and participate in some class activities! We will always try to give as much notice as possible for these.
If you do get a minute in the next few weeks, please go on to Parent View to complete a parent questionnaire about school. Ofsted do take these and our own internal questionnaires into account when they come to inspect us. There are more details in this newsletter about how to access parent view.
I look forward to seeing you all over the next few weeks at one of our many events. I am sure you will agree that the children are going to have a fantastic time at school over the next few weeks!
Mrs F Bowman
