In this first in a series of 'Welcome to Shepley' articles, Mrs Frances Bowman, the new Head Teacher at Shepley First School introduces herself and the school.
Shepley First School
Shepley First School is a popular and successful primary school for pupils aged 4 – 10 years in the heart of the village. It is a member of the highly popular and successful three-tier Shelley Pyramid of schools within Kirklees.
At Shepley First School 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. We offer a rich and inspiring curriculum which aims to engage and enthuse the children.
We place great importance on the arts, sport and outdoor learning at Shepley, the key subjects of reading, writing and maths permeate all we do ensuring children not only acquire knowledge and skills but can apply what they have learned in many situations.
Shepley First School has earned a fine reputation for the quality of its teaching and its friendly atmosphere; so much so that places are in demand. The school remains an important part of the village with a high level of parental involvement. That is why the school is such a much-loved institution.
