Christ has no feet but our feet to lead others on their way

Christ has no lips but our lips to tell others why He died

Christ has no love but our love to win others to His side.


attendancejwMy 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.

Giving Brierley School a helping hand!

We would like to welcome ex-pupil David Findlay and his team from the ‘Reds in the Community’ project. They will be working all next week in our  grounds to enhance our school environment. Their work will include developing a  bird feeding area, creating flower beds, up-grading our insect hotel, painting fences and building a rockery area.

Good luck everyone and thank you for choosing our school!

Party Food!

Class FS have had a very busy morning taste testing food for our leavers’ party! It was hard work but we managed to evaluate all the products on offer and have made an excellent selection for our buffet menu! 

Egyptian photo frames

Mrs Steadman had a fantastic week in Class EF working on our photo frames fit for an Egyptian Pharaoh. We had such a busy week designing, making and testing that our frames stood up. Mrs Steadman would like to thank all the Year 3 children for all their hard work and making her feel so welcome.

Summer days are here again!

The children have completed our TASC day on the theme of summer. By Thinking Actively in a Social Context they have participated in many summer activities, showing how they can work together co-operatively. With the exception of Class MB, pupils from other classes were put into a big mixing bowl, given a stir and with a pinch of hard-work and a sprinkling of caring and sharing they came out in different groups. Everyone worked very hard and Mr Reed was especially pleased with the way our older pupils supported and helped the younger children, a real recipe for success! Well done everyone and thank you for such an inspirational day…



Awesome Athletics!

Team spirit wins through! Class FS enjoyed an afternoon of athletics at Dorothy Hyman on Thursday 15th June. Our team of 26 children competed in a range of events from javelin to the 600 metres. We finished 5th out of the 9 schools on the day but displayed determination, team spirit and sportsmanship. Well done Year 6!

Ancient Egypt

Class EF visited the Leeds City Museum on Tuesday. We were very excited because we got to see a real Egyptian Mummy. It was over 4000 years old!!

Class AH visit Yorkshire Sculpture Park

We all had a great day viewing some of the many sculptures in the park by Barbara Hepworth and Tony Cragg and then using this as inspiration for our own work.

Despite the very soggy weather Class AH were not deterred from their mission to build large abstract,sculptures based on opposites such as land and sea or man-made and natural.

Mission accomplished!

A very special meeting

On his recent visit to the Vatican, Fr Ian had a very special meeting!
