Statutory Information

Welcome to Emley First School

School Motto“Flourishing Together”

Mission Statement: “Learning and growing together with kindness, confidence and high aspirations”.

Vision Statement: At Emley First School we keep moving forward, opening up new doors and learning new things, because we are curious … and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths and teaching us new things. We are safe, we care, we are happy and our future is bright!

Our values: As children take their footsteps through school we encourage a good Growth Mindset through having a sense of belonging, identity, self-control and pride. We work in partnership with families and carers in order to give children greater life chances and promote high achievement.

The above aims and values were reviewed by the whole school staff team on the 3rd September 2018 and the full governing body at their autumn term meeting and are reviewed every year.

Road Safety Song

Here is our Road Safety Song all about parking safely round school. We performed this to PC Caroline Newsome and parish councillors. It is part of a project initiated by councillors Paula Kemp and Janet Depledge, that has received the backing of both the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and West Yorkshire Police.
