Possibility of Adverse Weather - 15th January 2021

As a result of the adverse weather, school will be open from 10.00am tomorrow, Friday 15th January. If the situation deteriorates in the morning, we may need to change arrangements so please monitor your emails.

In the event of heavy or persistent snow and/or icy conditions, due to the current situation, we will not be able to mix the children across year groups until staff arrive as we would normally do in such circumstances.

Please see our Possibility of Adverse Weather letter, which is available to download.

Lockdown Announcement 4th January 2021

Nook Lane Junior School will be open tomorrow (Tuesday 5th January) but only for vulnerable children and for those children whose parents are BOTH critical workers.

As we have received a high volume of requests I would like to appeal to you all to please only send your children into school if you absolutely have no other option and if there is no other available adult to look after the children at home.

Test and Trace

One important part of ensuring the safety and wellbeing of pupils, parents and our communities is testing for coronavirus. We all have a duty to make sure that the right people have access to get tested at the right time.

This is an important Test and Trace Letter 23.09.20 to share some information on how we can work together to make sure we can continue to give children and young people the best education in the safest way possible.

Updates from Nook Lane

Most recent letters issued to children and parents:

As educators, we acknowledge our responsibility to provide a service for children and families in our local and wider community and we recognise that school closure will have wide ramifications for all concerned. We feel it is our duty to attempt to provide some continuation in the children's learning, in whatever way we can. By sending work home, we aim to provide a degree of structure and routine for children. However, we are also sensitive to the fact that this could be challenging for many parents and carers in light of their own work commitments, family situations and indeed, their health.

Nook Lane Junior School will support the national effort in these most challenging of times, by staying open, in a limited capacity with minimised staffing arrangements, for the children of key workers and vulnerable pupils where no other childcare is available. It is important that pupil numbers are restricted to those who absolutely need this provision.
