We are delighted to welcome ALL children back to school on Monday 8th March! :-)

Earlsheaton Infant 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 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

    Full re-opening on March 8th
    I'm sure you're all as delighted as we are that we can finally bring all our children back to school. All classes will start back on Monday 8th March. We will have a slightly different start and finish time again, to help parents/carers spread out in the playground so East and West will do 8.30am until 3pm and North and South will do 8.45am until 3.15pm. All classes will finish at 1.45pm on Fridays up to Easter so we can continue to deep clean. Breakfast club will be open from 8am, please contact Mrs Hill in the office if you would like your child to attend. If your child is anything like mine then I'm pretty sure they have grown since December and their uniform or shoes might not fit well. As the non-essential shops are still closed it makes it harder to find school clothes so I am perfectly happy if the only school related thing they have on for the rest of this school year is their jumper or cardigan. Trainers are fine, no matter what colour. Obviously if their uniform and shoes still fit then they should still wear them but please don't feel you have to buy new things for the summer term...unless you buy them 2 sizes too big so they can wear them in the Autumn! We know how hard many of you have found this lockdown and we're so impressed by the way most of you have supported your child's online learning. We know it's been difficult so thank you for all your hard work. Better times are on their way :-)

    key worker children school provision
    Dear Parents/Carers Thank you for all your replies to my message yesterday about places in school for children of key workers or who have a social worker. We have been able to give spaces to all who requested one but we are now at capacity and cannot accept any more. All parents with a place should have received a Ping with details about drop off and pick up times and locations. Staff are currently creating and uploading home learning tasks to Class Dojo and Purple Mash for children staying at home and you will receive this information as soon as it is ready. Please take care of yourselves and your families and we hope to see you all again very soon.
