Welcome to Nields Academy - proud to be part of Great Heights Academy Trust

On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to Nields Academy’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 Academy 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 Academy 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.

Mrs Jenni Wyrill,

Update re Nields Academy Nursery Provision

The local governing body (LGB) of Nields Academy are considering the viability of our nursery provision and potentially change the school age from a 3-11 age range (which it currently is) to 4-11 i.e. to close the nursery. A consultation to gather feedback and perspectives from all stakeholders and interested parties, such as parents, staff and the local community is now open and will end on 24th May 2024. Please read the following letter for more details and how to give your views:

    Book Fair
    Tomorrow the book fair is coming back to Nields! There will be a new selection of books available for you to browse and purchase alongside some stationery items. Please come and join us in the hall after school tomorrow to see what's on offer. Every child who attends the book fair will be given a raffle ticket with the chance to win a free book of their choice from the book cases. The book fair will be on until Friday after school this week so if you can't make it tomorrow you could come Wednesday, Thursday or Friday instead. The book fair always send multiple copies of the titles but you can also order if there is something you really want and you can't make it. Take a look at the attached poster to see some of the titles on offer. Last time we held the book fair we raised around £300 for school to buy new books for our libraries so please come and support us again to raise even more money for new books for school! Thank you for your continued support.

    No nut products in school please!
    An important reminder that children cannot bring any nut products into school for their snack or as part of their packed lunch. We have both children and staff with allergies. All snacks and packed lunches should form part of a healthy diet and there should be no chocolate bars being brought into school. Thank you for your cooperation.

    Driving / Lateness
    Good Morning, Firstly, a big thank you for actioning our previous ping and not parking on the yellow zig-zags or the driveway up to school, it has been noted that this is much better both in a morning and after school and is ensuring we can keep everyone safe. We are still however receiving complaints around unsafe driving around school, please be considerate of other road users and where possible park away from school and walk. We will be running 'Walk to school' week soon and speaking to children in school about road safety. Please support us by setting a good example when driving to and from school and/or crossing the roads. Also, a polite reminder that all children need to be in school by 8:50. Our gates and doors open at 8:40 but children must be in classrooms by 8:50 to start their morning learning and be ready for the day. We are holding important assemblies in a morning and phonics lessons happen first thing so important learning and messages are being missed if children are not here on time. Thank you for your continued support, Mrs Travers.
