My name is Mrs Winstanley and I work in school as a Parent Support Advisor. I am available most days in school to speak to any parent/ carer regarding concerns they may have about their child. No matter how big or small, I am on hand to ensure your child has an enjoyable experience at Brierley CE Primary. Attendance is of key importance to your child’s learning and development, so I will continue to work closely with the Educational Welfare Services to improve this within our school. The school is committed to achieving our target of 96% this academic year and hope that we have you on board to help this happen. Continual reviews take place in school regarding the way attendance is celebrated. This ensures we can positivity encourage children to attend school, on time and ready to learn. I thank you for your support throughout the last academic year and look forward working with you again to build on our success.

The “Friends of Brierley School” provided an end of term treat for the children. All the latest dance moves and some excellent solo dancing skills were on show as the children danced the afternoon away. A big thank you to all the ladies who helped make the event a success.
To complete our topic work on China we experienced an exciting afternoon of cooking and eating.
The children liked choosing and preparing their ingredients but most of all they enjoyed sampling the finished dishes, truly scrumptious!
These are our competition entries for the Bloomin’ Yorkshire Competition to help raise awareness for Kidney dialysis. Years 3, 4, and 5 entered and one entry from each class was chosen. The winner could win an I-Pad and money for the school!!
Thank you everyone for your marvellous entries and let’s keep our fingers crossed for the competition.
This was made by a pupil from Class EF. She used two pieces of card with the white rose logo on. It was coloured using felt tip colours and laminated to make it water proof. They were then attached together using a split pin and white ‘tac’ was placed between them to keep them from touching so it was 3D.
This was made by one of our year 4 pupils. She made the rose head from card and decorated it with jewels. Then the stalk held it upright as it stands in a glass jar.
This was created by one of Mr Green’s class who has used recycled, coloured tiles which have been attached to a piece of wood and grouted.
The church summer fair is this Friday at St Paul’s starting at 3.30pm. Everyone is welcome and you could call and have a look as you collect the children from school. Perfect timing, enjoy!
