Liley Lane, Wakefield,WF4 4EW

Our village primary school is situated in Grange Moor. The school is a Kirklees school but is on the boundary of Kirklees and Wakefield. There are 65 children on roll in 4 classes.

Upper Whitley Junior and Infant School is a busy, hard working school with a committed staff team, which seeks to maintain a strong tradition of high standards and expectations both academically and socially.

The playgroup premises are within the school grounds and school and playgroup work in partnership for the benefit of the children and families in the village.

The staff deliver a balanced curriculum and provide stimulating (interesting) visitors and arrange out of school/off site visits.

We aim to provide a stimulating and caring learning environment where children feel happy and secure.

At Upper Whitley Junior and Infant School we aim to provide a lively, challenging environment where all children feel happy, confident and ready to learn.

We promote high achievement in all subjects.

We value the uniqueness and individuality of each child and seek to promote a firm foundation for social, moral, spiritual and physical development.

Our ultimate aim is to prepare our pupils to step into the future with confidence in themselves and a desire to do their best, so that they can face life’s challenges positively.




Upper Whitley Junior and Infant School is a community co-educational school offering primary education for children in the age group 5 - 11. We have a planned admission limit of 17.

The school building is originally Victorian with some extensions added in the 1960s. The grounds are extensive and there are plans to develop a wildlife area.

Parental involvement is welcomed and encouraged.

Parents wishing to enrol their child at this school please call in or telephone the Headteacher to make an appointment to see her and discuss the school's policy and admission procedure.

We aim to:

help each individual reach his/her full potential

create a happy and stimulating environment so that children will enjoy living and learning in a structured society

help children to develop lively and enquiring minds giving them the ability to question and argue rationally and acquire a good work habit. The ability to apply themselves to tasks is of paramount importance

help children to learn courtesy, good manners and consideration for others are very important qualities

give our children the opportunity to develop skills appropriate to the time they live

make children aware of their own environment and its relationship to the world, both immediate and beyond their village

make children aware, respect other cultures and races and provide equal opportunity for all

develop literacy skills encouraging children to:

i) read for pleasure and information

ii) introduce children to a wide range of books

and different styles including poetry and plays

encourage children to be selective

help develop a meaningful understanding of mathematics to develop appropriate number concepts and skills

encourage scientific and investigative skills so that children will learn to study living and non-living things with a purpose

provide a programme of physical skills so that health and physical development is promoted

to waken an awareness of the heritage around us through project work ie historical, geographical and religion

develop an appreciation of beautiful things through nature and art

to establish an environment within which teaching and non-teaching staff, school governors, colleagues and parents can work with each other for the successful achievement of these aims.




The school has few rules but these are brought to the notice of new parents at introductory meetings and via the school prospectus. New rules or policy changes are issued by letter to parents. The school follows the Authority's policy of no corporal punishment to pupils, and develops its discipline through the ethos of the school.
