Head Teacher's Welcome

Welcome to our new school website. We are a large multicultural Junior School near the centre of Huddersfield.  At Birkby Junior School we work hard to provide a creative, enjoyable and rewarding learning experience for each child in an inclusive, secure and stimulating learning environment.

We are proud of our school community and celebrate the rich and diverse backgrounds of all our pupils. 

The Staff and the Governing Body at Birkby Junior School are committed to working together to give children the academic and life skills they will need to be successful.

We care about our Parents and Carers, we welcome your involvement and we look for your support in ensuring good attendance, good behaviour and hard work from your children. We operate an open-door policy and welcome you into the school anytime you would like to talk.  Hopefully you can find all the information you need on our website but if you can’t please feel free to call into school. We will be happy to help you and answer any further questions you may have.

Thank you

Mrs Susan Davis
Head Teacher

    Allergy
    Dear Parents and Carers, As you know, we have some children in school who have a severe food allergy to peanuts, nuts and also kiwi fruit. Any exposure to these items may cause a life-threatening allergic reaction that requires emergency medical treatment. We are asking that you do not send any kiwi fruit, peanut and nut containing products to school with your child. It is important that our school is a Kiwi and Nut free zone so that we can keep these children safe and prevent a life -threatening allergic reaction. Please do not send any Kiwi fruit or snacks into school that contain nuts, this includes sandwich fillings such as Nutella/ Chocolate Spreads and cereal bars that contain nuts. Thank you

    Urgent - Measles, Chicken Pox and Shingles
    Dear Parents/Carers, Re: Measles, Chicken Pox and Shingles Please may we ask for your cooperation in a vitally important matter? One of our pupils is receiving medical treatment which means their immune system is suppressed. This puts the pupil at serious risk if exposed to measles, chicken pox or shingles. The best way to protect a pupil from measles is for all pupils to be immunised against measles. Please discuss measles immunisation with your GP if your child is not already vaccinated. If you suspect your child has measles you should let the school know immediately. Our pupil is also at risk from chicken pox and would need to be given an injection within three days of contact. Please let us know immediately if you suspect that your child has chicken pox. It is also very important that you let us know if anyone in your household has shingles. Our pupil is also at greater risk from diarreaha and vomiting infections, also may we please remind you not to send your child back into school until they have been free of symptoms for 48 hours. This is for everyone’s benefit, staff included. Your own child is not at any risk whatsoever from this situation. However, the health and wellbeing of our pupil who is immunosuppressed may be at serious risk. We depend on the co-operation of all parents and know we can rely on your help. Yours Sincerely, Mrs S Davis Head Teacher
