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.

We have had such a fun and eventful half term, it has flown by!  Over the last two weeks we have been so busy preparing for the KS2 show.  I am sure you will agree if you came to see the show that it was   brilliant, the children did so well with their acting and singing, they made us all so proud!  I am very lucky to have a talented team of teachers and teaching assistants who make this happen so would like say a huge thank you to all the staff involved.

Year 1 and 2 had a fantastic time at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park recently.  The children were so enthused about all the animals they saw and had a great day.  They have produced some lovely work on the trip including some brilliant writing.

I am sure you have heard what a fun sport relief week we had.  The children took part in all sorts of sport activities throughout the week.  One of the highlights for the children was the staff sport relief house point challenge.  Staff competed against each other in assembly to win house points for their team.  It is fair to say that we now have a hula hoop craze in school!

Reception have done a brilliant job of caring for our eggs and now chicks.  The children have learnt so much from seeing the eggs hatch and the chicks grow.  They have learnt to handle them and realised that even at a few days old they all have different personalities! 

Thank you for your contributions to our Easter bun sale yesterday.  The children enjoyed their Easter treat!  Thank you also for all your Easter Egg donations, today we held our Easter Raffle and announced the winners of our Decorate an Egg competition!

Thank you for all your support and help, have a lovely Easter and we look forward to seeing you at one of our Events in the summer term, when hopefully we will experience some warm and sunny weather!
