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

    COVID-19 Survey
    Dear Parents and Carers, Kirklees Council’s Public Health team is asking young people aged 9-16 to tell us about their experiences of Coronavirus and how it has affected their life and the way they feel. This will help the council and schools plan how much (and what type of) support young people may need. All questions are optional, and your child can leave out any question they don’t want to answer. The information given by your child will not allow us to identify them. Data gathered through the survey will be held as long as necessary to carry out a full analysis of the findings. The survey will run until Monday 26th July 2021, and a summary of findings will be published in August. Findings from our previous COVID-19 surveys and further details are available here. We would be grateful if you could encourage your child to complete the survey by clicking on this link https://wh.snapsurveys.com/s.asp?k=162555079916 Kind Regards, Mrs E Mills Assistant Head Teacher

    Mobile 'test and collect' COVID point coming to Birkby and Fartown
    Dear Parents and Carers, On Friday 25th June, Kirklees are bringing a mobile collection point to Birkby and Fartown to make it easier for local people to access Covid-19 Lateral Flow home testing kits. In a national effort to reduce infection rates, twice-weekly asymptomatic Covid-19 testing is currently available for everyone in England. You may already be aware that there are a few different ways you can access your twice-weekly asymptomatic tests. However, we know it can be difficult for some people to access these options for a number of reasons. The one-day mobile collection point will be at; 8am-12pm Croft Medical Centre, 5 Cobcroft Road, Fartown, HD2 2RU 1pm-6pm New Birkby and Fartown Library, Lea Street, Fartown, HD2 6HF Anyone over 18 can collect two packs of home testing kits (containing seven tests each). You don’t need to book, just turn up and please wear a face covering and social distance from those outside your household or bubble. The tests come with instructions on how to use the tests and how frequently you should take them. Kirklees will have staff on hand to show you how to use the tests should you need help. You will also be able to take a test a lateral flow Covid-19 test at the mobile collection point if you wish. Thank you, Mrs Susan Davis
