Happy New Year, everyone! Welcome back to the Spring term :-)

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!

Latest News...

  • 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 shows symptoms of Covid-19 please keep them at home and arrance a PCR test. As soon as you receive a negative result your child can come back to school. If the result is positive please let us know and follow isolation guidelines. Remote learning tasks will be put on Class Dojo and Purple Mash so please make sure you can access these. 
  • COVID-19 Safety: If anyone in your house tests positive for Covid-19 then you child can still come to school as long as they do a lateral flow test every morning and get a negative result. 
  • COVID-19 Safety: We have to ensure our site complies with health and safety legislation. If we do not have enough staff to run a class or the whole school safely (to keep us within legal adult to child ratios and to make sure we could evaculate all children in the event of a fire) then we may have to close to all but the children of keyworkers or vulnerable children. This should only be for a short period of time until staff are out of isolation. There are very limited numbers of supply teachers available at the momement, for obvious reasons, and we will do our very best to keep all children in school but please be aware that we may have to close or partially close as a last resort. Work will be set on Purple Mash and Class Dojo for children to complete if this is the case.

    PE kits
    Dear Parent/carers Dodgeball Dave is starting his school coaching sessions next week with each class. Last term we asked for children to come dressed in PE kits for the day, however, this had mixed results with some children never wearing an appropriate kit. We also noticed that when getting changed for the nativity show some children were really struggling with these basic skills. we have decided that from next week, all children (including Reception) must have a PE kit in school and will get changed before their PE session. The kit is a plain white T-Shirt, navy shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms and black plimsole type pumps. All items should be named and kept in a small, drawstring type PE bag on their peg. Kits will be sent home at the end of each half term for washing. PE bags are available from the office for £2 if you need a new one. If your child has signed up for Dodgeball after school club this starts on Thursday 20th Jan. Children will come home in their PE kits to save time getting changed at the end of the session. Please return the kit to school the next day. Thank you.

    Covid update
    We are now being notified children in all classes are absent from school because they have tested positive for covid, on a PCR test. We wanted you to be aware of this as schools are no longer responsible for 'track and trace' duties. If your child complains of a sore throat, headache, stomach ache and/or has a constant cough then please do a lateral flow test. If this is positive you will need to book a PCR test to confirm and your child will need to isolate at home. Close contacts (eg family members) do not need to automatically isolate anymore, as long as they carry out a daily lateral flow test and get a negative result. This applies to all variants of Covid now, including Omicron. We genuinely have no idea what the government plans are for after the Christmas holidays. Schools find out about lockdowns and closures at the same time as you, when the announcement are made. Hopefully if we all take extra care and get our vaccinations and boosters then the infection rate will stay low enough to prevent another national lockdown. Fingers crossed!
