Welcome to Nields School

17th July 2020 

School is now closed for the summer holidays and will re-open on Tuesday 8th September 2020.

The entire staff and governors wish to thank all parents/carers for their continued understanding and support during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We all want to say a massive well done to our children, who have continued to work hard and maintain a resilient, positive attitude to their learning during this unprecedented time.  We also want to say ‘goodbye’ and ‘well done’ to the children in Year 6, who have now left us ready for the next chapter of their education.  We will miss you all and wish you all the luck in the future!

Our home learning area of the website has been updated with ‘summer activities’ to keep the children’s minds active during the summer holidays and to enable them to hit the ground running in September.

If you have any concerns about a child or family during the summer holidays, you may contact Kirklees Duty and Advice team on 01484 456848 or the relevant emergency services. There are other useful links on our Family Wellbeing tab too.

We look forward to seeing you all again in September and wish you a restful, enjoyable summer holiday.

Thank you.

Leigh Brown

Head teacher

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As the new headteacher of Nields, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to our school website.

At Nields our motto is

‘Reach for the Moon...the Stars... and Beyond!’

Our school vision is ‘the BEST outcomes for ALL pupils’ and we achieve this by providing a safe and happy environment which nurtures curiosity and self-worth.  We help our pupils to develop a love of learning by exposing them to a broad, varied and interesting curriculum which enables them to build up their knowledge and develop their skills.  We actively foster a community built on the foundations of tolerance, democracy, respect and equality.  Our staff model positive moral and social values which empower pupils with the freedom to express themselves whilst developing a deep understanding of who they are and respect for others, with a view to becoming well rounded members of society.

Located in the Colne Valley, we are able to witness the picturesque landscape change around us as the seasons pass and our children grow and learn.  We are also able to provide our pupils with exciting learning experiences that make the most of what the locality can offer: from our own village of Slaithwaite, to the wider area of Huddersfield and its rich industrial heritage, not forgetting the natural beauty of the Pennines.

I hope you are able to find the information you require on our website, but please remember this is just a window into what Nields has to offer.  I would strongly encourage and warmly welcome you to visit us and see what makes Nields such a wonderful place to be.

Kind regards

Leigh Brown
