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.

Strictly Pennine 2015

Strictly Pennine - 25 February 2015

We were all proud of Class 3’s performance at Strictly Pennine at the Lawrence Batley Theatre on 25 February 2015.  They danced a jive to ‘Shake it off’ by Taylor Swift.  The theme of the dance was ballet dancers vs street dancers who came together to jibe!  Well done all of Class 3 plus Robyn from Class 2 who stepped in at the last minute to even up the numbers.  Many thanks to Mrs Brian for choreographing and working with the children and also to all the Class 3 Support Staff who supported on the night backstage. 


We would like to thank the Bernadette Heys School of Dance, Marsden, for the hire of the ballet outfits.  We would also like to thank the Pennine Sports Partnership for giving the children this annual opportunity.  The children make treasured memories.

More Recycling - Feb/Mar 2015

We are working on a joint project focused on recycling with our partner school in Mbale, Uganda. In September, we audited what was being recycled in our community and shared our findings with our Ugandan visitors.  We were really interested in what was recycled in Uganda.  Now we are all working on increasing the amount of recycling done in our community.  We aim to help the children increase their awareness of global sustainability.
