Welcome to Helme CE (VA) Junior & Infant School

Helme is a small primary school nestled in a glorious position overlooking the foothills of the Pennines.

The school runs a Breakfast Club to allow children to start school early and benefit from a hearty breakfast.

Jellies, an independent out of school club, runs after school in the Church in Linthwaite.  Jellies staff pick up children both directly after school and are aiming to pick up at the end of after school activities in the near future. For more information about Jellies visit their website here.

Sports Day 2015

Helme Sports Day - 1 July 2015

The children and their families had a great time at our Sports Day this year.  The weather was fabulous and the opening ceremony was held in Church to keep everybody cool.  The children played the National Anthem on clarinets, sang the school song, sang and signed 'Proud' and performed 'Connect It' from the BBC Ten Pieces project.

The children in Class 4 worked closely with Mrs Brian to organise the events.  All the children were split into mixed age teams and tried hard to win as many points possible.  The red team were victorious at the end of the day - well done!

Pirate Invasion - 9 July 2015

Helme School was invaded by pirates this afternoon.  They took over various parts of the school and did all sorts of pirate activities.  They ended up being very hungry.
