Sheffield Parent Carer Forum

The Sheffield Parent Carer Forum are the largest parent carer-led network of families with children with disabilities and special educational needs in Sheffield.

We are having a Coffee Morning at Nook Lane Junior School / Integrated Resource on Thursday 16 February at 9.30am.

An Independent Supporter, Tracy, will also be there to talk to parents and carers about Education, Health and Care Plans.

You will be able to chat with other parents and carers, talk to some of our members and find out how we are working to support you and improve the lives of our children with disabilities in Sheffield. There will be refreshments available.

Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day 2017 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 7th February with the theme 'Be the change: Unite for a better internet'.

The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community.

It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet.

Peer Mediator Conference

We took 8 of our peer mediators (children specially trained to help solve playground conflicts) to the annual Peer Mediator Conference earlier this month.

The children joined with peer mediators from many other schools to celebrate and share their ideas and experiences.

The day finished with a visit and show by a children's entertainer, who kindly posed with our Nook Laners, before we returned to school.

To find out more about our Peer Mediatiors and the role they play, see our Peer Mediation page ...

Nooker Prize Poetry

At the beginning of December we had a super assembly to celebrate our annual prize for poetry 'The Nooker Prize'. What a talented bunch of writers we have at Nook Lane.

It was so inspiring to hear so many great poems, read so beautifully by members of staff. And we had many proud parents at the assembly!
