At Netherton School we aim to provide a caring and stimulating environment where work and high standards are of prime importance. We believe that if children are taught in such an environment, learning will be enjoyable and the children will be happy.

  School closes for the summer on Friday 15th July, and will re-open for pupils on Tuesday 6th September.

We believe that education is a partnership between staff, pupils and parents and that it is at its most effective where there is close co-operation between home and school. Parents and visitors are, therefore, always welcome in school and there are opportunities during the year for parents to consult with staff on an individual basis. Working together we can help to give your child security and confidence without which real learning is impossible.

Our INSET days for this  academic year 2016/17 are as detailed below. School will be closed for children on these days.
