Breakfast Club

It is with a heavy heart that we have needed to press the 'pause' button on the Breakfast Club from the end of this term. The school had the best intention to support families and the community but the effects of Covid have had a significant impact on the school. During November there have been more concerns about the impact of Covid on staff and children with a significant number isolating. In addition the risk of Covid for children and staff crossing several bubbles potentially could cause the closing of the school. Re-opening of the Breakfast Club is something we wish to come back to in the future.

Slaithwaite Tree Festival at Slaithwaite Church 

Nields School's Caring Hands Box Tree

The hands were made by the children and seasonal and thoughtful messages were written on some of them. The boxes concealed beneath the hands contained items of foodstuff donated by staff which were given to Slaithwaite Relief Trust after Christmas.


21st October 2020 HARVEST FESTIVAL

As we were unable to have our Harvest Festival service at the church this year, the produce collected was given to the Slaithwaite Mutual Aid group for distribution, our year 5 children in Oceania class took them to Slaithwaite Fire Station. The donations were gratefully received and will be given to families in need across the community.

Thank you everyone for the donations of dried food and toiletries.  

Slaithwaite Mutual Aid group posted on Facebook a thank you as well for our support.

Latest news from the PTFA August 2020

We are pleased to announce that we have started a new 2nd hand uniform shop and there is a bin in the carpark where you can leave any suitable items. A termly Secondhand Uniform sale will take place at school. 

There is also a bin for the recycling products we’re currently collecting.

Please see the posters below for details of the things you can put into the collecting bins.

Click on the images below to open up a larger version to view.





Please recycle and donate old school uniform items rather than putting them in the bin. There are many families across Kirklees who no longer receive a school uniform grant and would benefit from your generosity. By recycling old school uniform children can go to school in proper uniform reducing the risk of bullying. Your donations of unwanted/outgrown uniforms can be provided to those who want them the most, free of charge.


You can drop off any items in the Uniform Exchange bin at Slaithwaite Fire Station.

UNIFORM EXCHANGE is a local charity that recycles (click on this link to find out how you can donate) school uniform and provides (click on this link to find out how you can get items) which is free for families in Kirklees. You can drop off any items you wish to recycle at your local library.
