A day in the life of Nook Lane

What's been happening at Nook Lane?

Achievement Assembly - 10th June 2019

Every Monday we celebrate children's achievements in a short assembly.

Children are given a certificate to showcase their success (with an emphasis on core values and their learning, especially reading).

Transition information for Y6 pupils.

Year 6 pupils will have chance to visit their secondary school during the summer term.

They will have two transition days where they get to look around the school, meet the staff and pupils and sample some lessons.


Dates, times and further information can be found on the Year 6 Yeargroup page.

Emotional Health & Well-Being Information Evening

Emotional Health & Well-Being Information Evening for Parents.

Wednesday 19th June 2019.

Parents, carers and family members are invited to attend an information evening to find out how Nook Lane support children in understanding and managing their emotional health and well-being.

The evening will also be supported by Dr Robert John, our Healthy Minds lead practitioner from CAMHs (Child and Adolescent Mental Health).

Supporting Children's Emotional Health

All pupils complete a SEAL (Social, Emotional Aspects of Learning) baseline questionnaire every year. It is really good to see how well our children understand themselves and how to support their own emotional well-being, mental health and behaviour.

We use the information to monitor and support individual children and groups of pupils and work with families if appropriate.

After school clubs recommended by Nook Lane parents

We asked all Nook Lane parents whether there were any clubs or organisations for children outside of Nook Lane which you would recommend to other parents at Nook Lane.

We received lots of responses and have compiled a list of recommendations, which can be found on our Afterschool Activities page.

If there are any clubs or organisations which your child attends which you think should be added to this list then please get in touch with Miss Braithwaite or Mr Cornelius.

Peak Edge Academy Trust

We are excited to announce that we can now confirm that Nook Lane Junior School will convert to Academy status on May 1st 2019.

This will establish Peak Edge Academy Trust along with Bradfield Dungworth Primary School, Loxley Primary School, Oughtibridge Primary School, Stannington Infant School and Wharncliffe Side Primary School.

We would like to thank you for your support as we have worked to establish Peak Edge.

During the Spring Term, the children in Dance Club worked incredibly hard in preparation for their performance at LINKS 2019 Movement Festival.

This year's theme was 'The Greatest Show' and children put on their dancing shoes and enjoyed a day of fun, music and dancing. See more on our PE & Sport page ...
