Helping your child to learn!

Our final half-term learning plan has been added to the website. We welcome the support and knowledge that parents give to the children and our school. Please copy the plan, from your child’s class teacher, to assist with any work at home. It is helpful to discuss the work being done at school and also finding out more information with them. 
Thank you for your assistance in helping your child to learn!


A special service

We welcomed Fr Ian today to lead our school Mass. The service was extra-special as we were outside in our Peace Garden, bathed in beautiful Spring sunshine. We reflected and gave thanks for someone special  in our lives and then said prayers to God for His love. The children sang ‘He’s got the whole world in His hands’, which seemed very appropriate today listening to the birds and enjoying our lovely school environment. Some pupils received Communion and Fr Ian closed the service with a special blessing for us all.



Teaching assistants Mrs Allen and Miss Greenwell are leaving us today. They have been a fantastic support to the children at our school. Although we will miss them very much everyone knows that those who leave Brierley school always take a little piece of us with them – wherever they go and whatever they do, and in turn they leave something special with us. With fond memories and our very best wishes to you both thank you very much for the love, care and friendship shown to all of us over the years.



Miss Cole has really taken on-board our fund raising efforts to help buy and resource a new outdoor sensory play area. Along with the staff and the children she is hoping to raise an amount in excess of £2500. Already she has climbed Yorkshire’s three highest peaks and has done a skydive above East Yorkshire. Over the holidays she is planning to climb Mount Snowden and in the weeks to come she is doing a sponsored walk with the school staff and organising a sponsored event for all of the children to walk from John O’Groats to Lands End using our school field!! We have posted some fantastic close up photographs of our superhero in action, then you very much Miss Cole and well done. If you would like to donate watch out for the sponsor sheets coming after the half-term break or visit

What will your child be learning this half-term?

Please read through our planning newsletters to discover the learning areas for your child’s class. These half-termly updates will help you to support your child in their learning activities. Asking questions and finding out more information at home will reinforce some of our  work in school. Thank you everyone for your continued support!

Brierley Cubs

Best Sporting Team!
Some of our children have just returned from a hectic weekend of football representing Brierley Cubs. They were competing against teams from all over the country at Prestatyn Pontins. On Tuesday morning members of the under-7 squad wanted to show the school their fantastic award, the trophy for the best Sporting Team at the tournament. This was presented to them by ex-Liverpool player Mark Lawrenson – a special moment for them all! Well done everyone for your sportsmanship and representing our village so well!

First-hand experience!

Class MB had  a fantastic day visiting Old Moor RSPB on 26th April 2017. We were scientific explorers for the day and went on a bug hunt in the woods, bird watching and pond dipping!

A Very Special Day!

Five of our key stage 2 pupils were confirmed at St Paul’s Church recently. Following Confirmation Classes during the Spring Term with Fr Ian they were received into the family of the church by our very special visitor the Right Reverend Tony Robinson,  Bishop of Wakefield. The Confirmation service was supported by family and friends of the children and by the rest of our key stage 2 pupils who gave their support with hymns and prayer readings, this was a very special day for everyone!
