Welcome to Nields School


If your child is currently coming into school as a keyworker or vulnerable pupil, please can you ensure that you are sending them in wearing suncream and with a suitable sun hat and water bottle as the weather is becoming warmer and we are using outdoor learning opportunities more frequently.  Thank you for your continued support.


Weekly update June 1st 2020

As the nation begins its recovery from lockdown, Nields continues to remain open to provide essential childcare for vulnerable pupils and children of key workers but school remains closed to all other pupils.  If you are not a key worker, other options for childcare must be explored. 


Please remember Nields WILL NOT be re-opening on June 1st.

Following our risk assessment* and consultation with staff & governors, we can confirm that we will partially reopen as follows:

·         Monday 15th June 2020 - Years 5 & 6 pupils – 8:40am – 12pm everyday

Then, if it is safe to do so...

·         Monday 6th July 2020 - Years 3 & 4 – 1pm – 3:20pm everyday

Our plan has been guided by the independent scientific evidence and guidance/advice from both Kirklees and teaching trade unions.  

Pupils’ return to school is completely parental choice and parents will NOT be penalised if they do not send their children back to school.

Online learning to continue for all pupils, especially those in Early Years and KS1, as well as those pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 who do not return to school.

More information about plans for transition will follow.

Please remember that Nields will be closing completely on Friday 17th July 2020 for the summer holidays ready to reopen for the new academic year on Tuesday 8th September 2020.

If your child is eligible for FREE SCHOOL MEALS, packed lunches are available with 4 varieties of sandwich fillings. These are available from the school office for collection and will be available until the end of term.  Please buzz the office at the gate and the packed lunches will be brought out to you. Please maintain social distancing.   

Please also remember to check our website for Home Learning, then at the Class tab for activities your child can complete during this time at home. Please take a look at the PTFA tab also as there are things to do there as well.

If any parents/carers have any questions or concerns relating to their child or their learning please contact office.nields@kirkleeseducation.uk or 01484 842154.

If you have any concerns about another child or family during this unprecedented time, please do not hesitate to contact us to share your concern confidentially.

Thank you for your continued support.

Headteacher: Mr Leigh Brown

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 Stars and Fly to the Moon’

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
