Learning at Home


Class Donaldson worked really hard on our topic of 'Beautiful Brierley'. Here is some of the work on display that we are proud of.


We would like to thank the Barnsley Museum Services for the craft boxes they provided. Children in Class Donaldson really enjoyed making the different things.

Class Donaldson Nativity


This year our Christmas celebrations have been a little different to usual due to the restrictions that are in place. However, Class Donaldson have learnt all about the Christmas story and the birth of baby Jesus.  We have put together a little Nativity performance for you to show you why we celebrate Christmas. We hope you enjoy it.

Could we please ask you follow safeguarding procedure and not record or share any of the videos below. Thank you 

We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you for your support during this term. The children have settled into school life really well and have made a super start to their learning journey here at Brierley. We are all so proud of them!

We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.

Mrs Hopkinson, Mrs Charlesworth, Miss Bretton and Class Donaldson


Class Donaldson have been thanking God for harvest time.


We are very excited to be welcoming 30 new children into our Reception Class throughout September. We can't wait to meet you and for you to begin your learning journey here with us at Brierley CE Primary School.


Here is some information about a football programme for girls in Barnsley:

 Starting back in November 2020

For children who do not have any siblings in school, their start time will be 9.05am, lining up on the right hand side of the barrier gate. The finish time will be 3.05pm, where you can collect your child from the pathway down Beech Close at the front of school. Your child will be escorted when crossing the road to meet you. For all other Reception children, the start time will be slightly different and this will be on your individual letter that was sent out on 10.07.20. These staggered start and finish times are in place to minimise congestion and contact with other bubbles of children.
