A day in the life of Nook Lane

What's been happening at Nook Lane?

Y2/Y3 Transition Sports Afternoon

On Monday, the Year 2 children from Stannington Infant's School joined the Y3s for an afternoon of sport and games.

In a brilliantly organised transition event, the Year 5 children led a variety of activities from javelin to assault courses. The Year 5 children also supported all of the younger children in their roles as team leaders.

It was a fantastic event and thankfully the rain held off. All of the children left with red, smiling faces! See more on our P.E., Sport and Physical Wellbeing pages ...

Healthy Minds School Ambassadors

As part of our Healthy Minds project, we have chosen a group of Year 5 pupils who we feel would be fabulous role models and ambassadors in school.

Their role will be promoting and supporting emotional health and well-being from a pupil perspective and developing new ideas and strategies in helping children understand and manage their emotional health.

Nook Lane Lionesses

The Y5 /Y6 Nook Lane Lionesses have really enjoyed their Summer football training.

We hope to see the Y5s next year and would like to wish the Y6 girls a successful campaign with their chosen team.

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).

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.
