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.

Attendance and support

My name is Mrs Conway and I am the school’s parent support adviser.

The last thirty years of my career has been spent working within education in a number of roles which has included working with children and young people from the ages of three to eighteen and their families.  I am looking forward to working with you and your children to build on the success of our school.

As you are already aware, attendance is a key priority for school as this is vital for your child’s learning, development and attainment.  I will therefore be working closely with Education Welfare Services in order to improve attendance and achieve our target of 96% for this academic year.  As parents we really need you on board to support us in achieving this.  Good attendance will continue to be celebrated as this is proven to encourage children to attend school, arrive on time and be prepared and motivated to learn.

I will be available in school to speak and meet with any parent regarding any concerns you may have about your child – no matter how big or small.

Two bishops visit Brierley School?

Our pupils and staff welcomed the Bishop of Wakefield to lead worship in the school hall. We listened to the story of the ‘Lost Sheep’ and understood that God knows all of our names and is with us always. After our prayers, Bishop Tony then invited one of the children to become Bishop for the afternoon. A very, very important job and two Bishops in one day at Brierley School!

Saying goodbye!

The children, parents, friends and staff gave an emotional farewell to Mr Reed at a special service at St Luke’s church. With songs, readings and a guitar recital the afternoon went really well. Mr Reed was overwhelmed by the children’s work and presentations, ‘it made me feel very special,’ he said.  


Going back in time!

Class EF visited Leeds City Museum and we learnt lots of interesting facts about Ancient Egypt. We even saw a real mummy! We now know all about the mummification process, yuk!
