Coronavirus Update April 2nd 2020 

Parents and Carers

Our school building is currently closed but we have joint provision and can offer emergency childcare between New Road Primary School and Copley Primary School.  Should you need to access a place, please contact on the details below. Please note this is only available for those children meeting the government’s criteria.

Whilst we are committed to providing this care for vulnerable children and those of critical workers, there may be circumstances when we are unable to do so.  Should that occur, we will work with the Local Authority to ensure that alternative provision is available.  The Local Authority can be contacted on 01422 394101 or at school.effectiveness@calderdale.gov.uk.  

Please note that safeguarding remains our key priority and it is important that you share any concerns or worries about children’s wellbeing with us.  Please contact the school using the details below with any concerns.

During this difficult time, Free School Meals provision for those children eligible for benefits-related Free School Meals will be (details).  Please contact (name, role, contact details) if you need any help in accessing Free School Meals.  Further information about support available can be found on the Calderdale website at https://www.calderdale.gov.uk/v2/coronavirus/advice-and-updates where there is also the facility to request support. 


We are aware that some of you are critical workers and are relying  on a skeleton support network within your family. Over the next few days or weeks, that support structure may collapse and leave you in need of support. If you find yourself in this situation please contact me on head@copley.calderdale.sch.uk and I will arrange a good time to ring you and we can talk through what we can do to support. Alternatively we now have a temporary mobile number for you to contact the Headteacher on 07395182368.

We are thinking of you all and are very much looking forward to the time when we can be fully open and return to normal service.  Please stay at home, stay safe and keep watching our website for updates, advice and the ongoing support for children’s learning at home.

Everybody had a great day dressed as their favourite book characters.  Have a look in our gallery to see the photos.


Mollie (year 5) has been placed third in an international competition run by the coding company Hopscotch. She began using the coding platform (available for free on the Apple App Store) with Mr Pilkington in his Computing lessons at the beginning of November and quickly proved to be a real whizz, creating a maze game, Crossy Road and two independent apps that dressed characters she had created.

It was Mollie’s Build A Snowman game that got her placed third in the international Christmas competition. See below for a link to Mollie’s game...and who knows, we may be buying future games Mollie creates in the App Stores!
