Many children across the district will be getting ready for their first day at school over the next few days.
To celebrate the return to classroom, we have taken a look through our archives and found school starter photographs from across Dewsbury and Batley in 2012 and 2013. Do you recognise anyone?
Does your child start school this month? We would love to see first day pictures.
