Many thanks to the parents who shared their opinions of our school with Ofsted, we were genuinely touched by the lovely things you said about our school and staff. The report will be published soon.

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

    Covid test collection sites and positive test notification
    Please see the attached letter about where to collect Lateral Flow Testing kits, if you need or want some. I hope everyone has a lovely, sunny, restful break next week. I am still available on the school mobile number, which is 07593 388114. If your child or anyone tests positive for covid over the holidays then please let me know by sending a text, as we may have to let other parents know if it's a child. Fingers crossed we'll all stay well and healthy! Don't forget that we have a training day when we come back, so we look forward to seeing you all again on TUESDAY 8th June.
