Come along to our Easter coffee afternoon on Thursday 11th April. See 'latest news' below for timetable for each class.

Welcome to Earlsheaton Infants School

"This is the start of the journey..."

Welcome to our school and our website. We hope you will find the information here useful, whether you already have a child in school or are considering us for your child's first steps in education.

We are a friendly and nurturing school located in Earlsheaton; a small village near the centre of Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. Ofsted inspected us most recently in May 2016, where we were delighted to maintain our overall 'GOOD' rating. We cater for children aged 4 to 7 and currently have 120 children on roll in 4 classes, some mixed-age. We are currently full in all year groups but if you are interested in a place then please contact our office to ask about the Kirklees Admissions procedure and how to apply to be added to the waiting list. 

We offer a broad and stimulating curriculum, an on-site breakfast club and a variety of after school activities. We believe that the first few years in school are the most crucial in setting the tone for the rest of your child's education and we take this responsibility very seriously. We are committed to helping every child discover and unlock their potential and look forward to working in close partnership with parents and carers to give our children the best possible start in life. 

We are very proud of our little school and can't wait to tell you all about it! If you would like to find out more then use the buttons on the left hand side of this page to explore our website. If you would like to vist school then please call the office to make an appointment and we would be delighted to show you around. 

We look forward to welcoming you into our family!

Mrs Wendy Kelly
