Welcome to Nields Junior, Infant and Nursery School

On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to Nields Junior, Infant & Nursery School’s website.

We are a village school which prides itself in creating a happy, caring, family atmosphere where everyone is encouraged and inspired to achieve their potential and develop a love of learning. Children lie at the heart of everything we do and every decision within the school is made by firstly considering what is in the best interest of our children.

Nields Junior, Infant & Nursery School is a unique and creative environment, with fantastic outdoor space. We believe that our school is an inspiring place which energises learning and encourages children to develop an enquiring mind, a desire for knowledge, high personal expectations and understanding and respect for others. Our pupils thrive and shine, and leave us as compassionate, happy, reflective and adaptable young people.

We believe we have a unique combination of features here at Nields Junior, Infant & Nursery School which makes it a wonderful place to educate children, where all members of the community work in partnership to achieve the very best for every child.

Please take the time to browse our site and find out more about our lovely school. You are more than welcome to visit us, see our school at first hand and meet our friendly children and staff.

We are currently in the process of academising to the Great Heights Academy Trust (GHAT). Please follow the link for further information

    World Book Day - 7th March!
    Good afternoon, World Book Day will take place on Thursday 7th March this year and our Class Ambassadors have been busy speaking to their classes to organise events for this year's World Book Day Celebrations in school. They have finalised their plans today and would like to share them with you: * We would like to invite every child in school to dress up on the day as a character from their favourite book. They may also bring a copy of the book into school. Please see the two attached documents for ideas around dressing up including low cost, fun, creative activities to make some of your own costumes / props. * We will be spending some of the day visiting other classrooms to read with other children in school and share our favourite stories. We will then invite parents/ carers into school at the end of the day to read with us and see what we have been up to. * We will be taking part in a range of live lessons, competitions and virtual quizzes throughout the day. * We will also be hosting Nields' first ever Poetry Slam where children can choose to learn a poem by heart and perform it in front of their class - the winners will then perform in assembly and a prize given to the best performance. If you would like to take part in this please choose a poem and start to rehearse it - a favourite is always Chocolate Cake by Michael Rosen! Please keep an eye on pings for further information and updates around our World Book Day Events and check out the world book day website for lots more information and ideas: https://www.worldbookday.com/celebrate-world-book-day/ Many thanks, Mrs Travers and the Class Ambassadors.

    Nut-Free School
    Good afternoon Due to several children having nut allergies in our school, we are a nut-free school. Please ensure no nut products or food items containing nuts are in packed lunches or brought into school at any time. We also want to encourage healthy eating at breaktimes and lunchtimes within school, so would appreciate your support in this and ensure packed lunches are healthy and do not contain items such as chocolate, chocolate spread etc. Many thanks
