Christ has no hands but our hands to do His work today

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.

Dates for your Diary

Super start from Year 6!

Mrs Steadman would like to thank her new year 6 class for a fantastic week. She has been very impressed with their behaviour, attitude to learning and hard work. Here we are playing ‘Mastermind’ trying to guess 7 digit numbers. 

What will the children be learning this half-term?

We would like to welcome everyone safely back to the start of our new term. The children and staff have been sharing many stories about their adventures over the holidays, including Hurricane Harvey!

As we look forward to our term ahead we would like to share our learning plans with you. We hope that by having a greater understanding of the children’s work, parents and friends may be able to offer additional help and support. Have a look at what each class will be doing in all of the subjects that we cover at school.  

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.
