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. 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!

Latest News...

  • ***YEAR TWO PARENTS*** We have moved the date of our Leavers Ball to avoid a clash with the Bywell Year 6 Prom. Our ball will now take place at school on WEDNESDAY 20TH JULY, starting at 5.30pm. Our Leaver's assembly will also move to the afternoon of Thursday 21st July; the time will be confirmed soon but it will certainly be finished by 2.45pm.
  • We close for the summer holidays on Friday 22nd July and re-open for Years One and Two on Tuesday 6th September. Start dates for our new Reception children will be announced at the meeting for parents on 7th July at 6pm. 
  • Term dates for 2022&23 are now online. Click here for the list https://www.earlsheatoninfants.co.uk/kgfl/primary/earlsheatonpri/staging/pages/termdates
  • Dave will be in school coaching all classes in multi-sports on Wednesdays this term, so PE kits need to be in school please. 
  • Thank you for everyone who donated, helped set up and run or attended our Easter Fair. We made £732.03 profit which will be spent on lovely things for your children to enjoy. 
  • PARKING: Please be considerate of our neighbours when parking to drop off and pick up your children. Try not to block pavements or driveways and make sure there is enough space for residents to get in and out of their properties. Thank you for your understanding. 
  • Children will be getting changed for PE this term, rather than coming to school in their PE kits. This is because increasing numbers of children were forgetting and so weren't appropriately dressed for PE sessions. Please send a PE kit of a plain white T Shirt, navy shorts or leggings or joggers and black plimsole type pumps into school from the week beginning 10th January. PE bags are available from the office for £2 if you need a new one. All PE kit should be named, please!
  • COVID-19 Safety: If your child tests positive for covid then the new guidance is they must isolate for 3-5 days. If they are well enough they can come back into school after this then they can. Please note schools are no longer required to provide any remote learning for children isolating with covid.

    School closes today and jubilee gifts
    Please remember that our school is closed tomorrow (Friday 27th May) for the extra jubilee holiday day. We reopen on Tuesday 7th June as Monday 6th is our staff training day. School has bought all our children a special gift of a commemorative jubilee teaspoon in a presentation box to keep as a memento of this highly unusual jubilee (one that our children will never experience again in their lifetimes). Please note this is NOT a toy so you might want to keep it somewhere safe for them. The government have gifted all English school children a book about Queen Elizabeth to mark the event as well, however in true government fashion we are receiving them in small batches and we currently don't have enough for every child yet. We have enough for all our Year One and Two children to bring their copy home today and Reception will get theirs after half term when the final box arrives. Have a lovely half term holiday, everyone!

    Easter Fair thanks
    Huge thanks to everyone who came along and supported our Easter Fair yesterday. We made an amazing profit of £732.03, which will be used for more indoor and outdoor resources for your children. You've all been incredibly generous with your donations and supporting the fair and we can't thank you enough. Special mention also for the mums who came along and helped us set up and run it- you did a brilliant job and I hope you can help us again with the summer fair. Wishing you all a very happy and peaceful Easter break. :-)
