head teacher's welcome
On behalf of the children, staff, governors and the wider Crossley Fields community I would like to thank you for visiting our website.
Crossley Fields is a three-form entry culturally diverse primary school in Mirfield, West Yorkshire. There are currently around 555 children in the school.
We hope that you find this website useful in finding out about the school. It has the basic information that you would expect to see, but we have added to this over the past three years to give you a fuller picture of the work of the school. During the pandemic it proved a useful tool in communicating with parents, and we update it regularly.

What we teach and how we teach is really important to us, and these results, at a time of disruption are confirmation that we are on the right pathway.
Our school council working with the rest of the children in school have developed our new school core values, that they believe what define our school. They are;
Enjoy the website, but if you are a prospective parent, wishing to see some of the work we do at the school, please ring the school office for a visit to the school. I have regular slots in my diary to show all interested parties around.
With my very best wishes,
