Fundraising via AmazonSmile

Do you use Amazon for purchases?  If you purchased your goods from AmazonSmile (rather than the original Amazon website) Amazon give a percentage of the total spend to FONS – last year we made over £75 through this scheme – which costs you nothing – all you need to remember is to order through the AmazonSmile website rather than the usual Amazon website – the AmazonSmile website is exactly the same as the original Amazon website and it is now available in the Amazon Shopping App to all AmazonSmile customers using supported Android devices.

If you are an AmazonSmile customer, you can now support Holmfirth Junior, Infant And Nursery School Parent Teacher Association (FONS) in the Amazon shopping app on your Android device! Simply follow these instructions to turn on AmazonSmile and start generating donations.

  1. If you have the latest version of the Amazon Shopping App, open the App on your Android device.
  2. View Settings and select AmazonSmile.
  3. Follow the in App instructions to complete the process.

If you do not have the latest version of the Amazon Shopping App, update your App. Click here for instructions.

Search for us using the following details: Holmfirth Junior,Infant And Nursery School Parent Teacher Association.

AmazonSmile is not currently available for iOS users. We will notify you when it becomes available, in the meantime you can still purchase items via the AmazonSmile website if you are an iPhone user – just search for AmazonSmile and log into your Amazon account as usual and FONS will get a percentage of your purchase price.

Thank you for your continued support!

Curriculum Information Sessions – 18/9/19

Just a quick reminder that we are holding two Curriculum Information sessions today – one at 2.30pm and another at 6.00pm.  In these sessions we will be showing you details of our new curriculum.  The FONS (PTA) AGM meeting will follow the evening session.
Details of our Curriculum can also be found on this website – follow this link
We look forward to seeing you later today.


We have just been advised by another parent that Rotcher Road appears to be closed at the junction with Hollowgate. I have spoken to Yorkshire Water, who are responsible for the closure, and they have informed us that the road is unlikely to be open by the end of the school day due to a burst water main.
There is a road diversion in place – however, we suspect that this diversion will direct you onto Hollowgate and up Goose Green – which is an extremely narrow road – which is used by pedestrians – including a number of our older children who walk home unaccompanied. In view of this we would ask that you try and walk up to school to collect your children today, and for as long as Rotcher Road is closed.
According to Yorkshire Water, Rotcher Road may be closed for a number of days. We have asked them to keep us updated and have also stressed the importance of getting Rotcher Road re-opened as soon as possible.
We will keep you updated as and when we get any more information.
Kind regards
Alex Sykes
School Business Manager

We have a new Nursery shed!


We have a brand new shed in the Nursery play area to keep all our outdoor resources safe.  Many thanks to Tom Irving and Nigel Turner for all their help in getting rid of the old one which was more than 25 years old!  Thanks also to FONS and The Holme Valley Lions for their donations which helped to buy the new one – lets hope this one lasts as long.


Lost Property/Books/T Shirts

Lost property is in the playground this morning and tomorrow.  Please take this opportunity to look and take any items belonging to your child.  Any lost property left after the end of term will be taken to a charity shop as we need to clear the school before the deep clean in the summer.

Please can you check if you have any of our library books or group reading books at home – we have ‘lost’ many books this year and can’t afford to replace them.

Finally, if you have any of the orange Nabb PE t-shirts at home please bring them back (washed please!) as soon as possible.

Thank you
