Welcome to Shelley First School.

Tucked away in the quiet, sought-after village of Shelley, we are a popular, much-loved first school that sits at the heart of our community. The school welcomes over 180 pupils from Reception to Year 5 and holds an excellent reputation, with a strong record of academic achievement, pupil well-being and outstanding enrichment opportunities.

We say at Shelley that ‘Together we Succeed’ and this ethos permeates every aspect of school life, beginning right at the start in our OFSTED outstanding Early Years Provision which provides a seamless and well-crafted transition from nursery to school for our youngest learners. With our passionate and experienced team of staff, our carefully constructed curriculum and our extensive and rich outdoor space, Shelley children go on to grow and flourish: there are plentiful opportunities for sport, outdoor learning, forest school and so much more. Shelley First builds leaders for tomorrow with opportunities to join the school council, the eco forum, become head boy or girl, a house captain, or take up positions of responsibility supporting the younger members of our nurturing school. Here at Shelley, our standards are high and pupils love to learn: attendance is well above the national average and we hold a range of awards from Investors in Pupils, gold Artsmark and Musicmark awards and silver School Games award. We enjoy strong support from families and the community and together, we create everlasting memories and the strongest of foundations for our children: it’s really true, here at Shelley First, that ‘Together, we succeed’.
