Golcar Junior Infant And Nursery School

Welcome from Mrs Dyson

A very warm welcome to our school website to all of you who are part of our school family, and to those of you visiting the site for the first time.

We hope you find the information that you need, and that the website reflects some of the fantastic things which we do at our school.

Our school is a larger than average primary school nestled in the Pennine hills of the Colne Valley, close to Huddersfield. It is a vibrant, happy place offering an exciting education for our children in a secure, caring and stimulating environment.

Through the hard work, dedication and commitment of our staff, governors and community we aim to provide an education that excites, nurtures and challenges each child, enabling all children to flourish and achieve their best. We have a very strong commitment to inclusion with provision of opportunities for every child to be able to achieve their potential both academically, socially and in other areas in readiness for the next phase of their learning journey.

We encourage children to be lifelong learners; independent, inquiring, resilient, adaptable and able to make the most of every opportunity they are given. Our commitment to raising standards is delivered through our broad and rich curriculum.

We see parents as partners and hope that you will become fully involved in your child’s learning journey. We look forward to working in partnership with you to ensure the very best possible education for the children in our care.

Re: Snapchat
We would like to alert you to a potential new risk for those children using Snapchat, which has recently introduced a feature called SnapMaps, which allows users to share their exact location with other users. This could obviously pose a danger to children if they are communicating with people they don’t really know.
All evidence shows that children of primary school age are not normally able to identify such risky behaviour, which is why most social media apps (including Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram) have a minimum age limit of 13.
If your child is using Snapchat, they can enable a “Ghost Mode” whereby their location is not shared.
Guidance on this issue is available at:

A link is available through the online safety page on the school website.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s online safety, please feel free to contact school for advice.
