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. In October 2015, Jellies were judged 'Outstanding' by Ofsted.  For more information about Jellies visit their website here.

French Sharing Assembly

French Sharing Assembly - 15 April 2016

Every year we hold a French Sharing assembly for our families where each class presents some of their French learning. This year, Class 1 told us about the story La Surprise de Handa. Class 2 retold and dramatised Le Navet Enorme. Class 3 told us about what they'd learned by comparing French and English toy shops and gave us their opinions about certain toys. Class 4 chanted the alphabet in French, followed directions and described journeys to different places. Finally Class 5 put on a fashion show that was fantastique!

Basic Life Support - 8 Mar 2016

Classes 3, 4 and 5 enjoyed a Basic Life Support workshop on 8 March where they learned basic resuscitation and how to use a defibrillator.  The afternoon finished with a workshop for parents.
