Hello!

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 places in 4 classes, some mixed-age. We are usually 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 through the year. 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 proud to hold the Leeds Carnegie Mental Health in Schools Award at Gold Level, the Arts Award at Gold Level, and The Eco Schools Bronze Award. All of these things enhance our excellent academic provision and help our children grow into resilient, curious, confident individuals. 

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 go to the menu 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

Latest News...

  • Due to the covid infection rate still being high in Kirklees, we have decided the safest course of action is to continue with the staggered start and finish times for the coming half term. From Monday 12th April to Friday 23rd July the following times will remain:                                                   East/West drop off between 8.45-9am, pick up between 3.00-3.15pm. North/South drop off between 9.00-9.15, pick up between 3.15-3.30pm.  
  • We will continue to close at 1.45pm on Fridays to allow extra time for deep cleaning. We are confident that this, along with the cleaning spray we have been using during these deep cleans is the reason we have had no pod closures due to positive tests.

    Stranger Danger reminder
    As it's the start of the Easter holidays tomorrow and hopefully better weather (!) we know our children may be playing out more over the next 2 weeks. As part of our Safeguarding work we have reminded them all today about not talking to strangers and what to do if someone tried to encourage them away from their friends or the safe place they were playing in. It might be a useful discussion to have at home, as well.

    Drop off and pick up arrangements for next half term
    This is the same message that has gone out on Class Dojo, I'm sending it to Ping as well to make sure everyone sees it! Due to the covid infection rate still being high in Kirklees, we have decided the safest course of action is to continue with the staggered start and finish times for the coming half term. From Monday 12th April to Friday 28th May the following times will remain: East/West drop off between 8.45-9am, pick up between 3.00-3.15pm. North/South drop off between 9.00-9.15, pick up between 3.15-3.30pm. We will continue to close at 1.45pm on Fridays to allow extra time for deep cleaning. We are confident that this, along with the cleaning spray we have been using during these deep cleans is the reason we have had no pod closures so far due to positive tests. Kirklees have even been in touch with us to ask what we are doing that is special as we are one of only a small handful of schools who have had no outbreaks and no pod closures! Long may this continue! Have a lovely Easter break, everyone!
