All About Us

Kaye’s First and Nursery School is set in a semi-rural village between Huddersfield, Wakefield and Barnsley. The school was built in 1862 and was doubled in size in 1981.  We have 182 children in school, from Nursery to Year 5, and over 33 staff. We pride ourselves on being an open and friendly school and work hard to ensure we meet our aims.

At Kaye’s we provide an engaging, fun and warm learning environment, where everyone is valued, nurtured and does their best.

Together we work with our families and the community to:

- Develop aspiration

- Promote kindness

- Include everyone

School Uniform

We feel that school uniform helps children to have a sense of belonging to the school community, and it helps parents if there is a non-negotiable, work wear for school.

School uniform for Kaye’s is:

• Plain grey school trousers, skirt, or pinafore dress

• Girls may wear red gingham school dresses. Boys may wear plain grey shorts. Girls in the reception class are encouraged to wear pull on joggers or shorts so that they can take part in all of the outdoor play without feeling hindered by skirts.

• Plain white polo shirt.

Ÿ•Plain red sweatshirts, cardigans or fleece jackets can be worn, either with or without the school logo. If you wish for your clothing to display the school logo these can be purchased from Term Time in Huddersfield and Tesco online. No other logo is permitted.

• Plain white socks or grey tights for girls wearing skirts or pinafores.  Boys should wear plain black or grey socks.

• Any black shoes, with sensible soles, and low heels will be acceptable.

• PE/games kit to consist of plain navy or black shorts, with a plain white tee shirt, or polo shirt. Girls may wear plain navy or black leotards. For outdoor games, children may wear a tracksuit, or jogging bottoms and sweatshirt. They must also wear well fitting trainers or pumps.

• Children may wear wristwatches. Children with pierced ears may wear ear studs, but for safety reasons must remove them for PE or games lessons. Other forms of body piercing are considered inappropriate for school at this age. If children are unable to remove and replace ear studs themselves, parents may wish their child to leave ear studs at home on PE/games days. Alternatively, they may be covered by micropore dressing on those days. No other jewellery

Please ensure all items of school uniform are named, including footwear. We never cease to be amazed at the amount of un-named clothes that accumulate each week! Lost property baskets are located inside school, should any items of clothing go missing. Please ask if you wish to look through them.

Closures due to Severe Weather

The headteacher or nominated deputy may decide that, for health and safety reasons, they have to close the school to children.  It is vital that the impact of missed time on young people’s learning is taken into account before they take the very serious decision to close the school. 

If the decision to close the school has been taken, you can find information in the following places:
