Good evening everyone. I hope you had a positive start to the new year minus Boris’s announcement.

Unfortunately, Shiefton Supplementary School will not re-open on the 9th of January as planned.

In line with the current government guidelines and national lockdown, Shiefton Supplementary School will close its doors at Forest Fields Community Centre EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.

Shiefton, will remain closed until at least February half term (week commencing 15th February 2021). If they are any changes to when we can open, we will inform you accordingly.

With this in mind, the FOREST FIELDS COMMUNITY CENTRE is closed.

Stay Safe and stay home and we hope we can see you soon.



Hello everyone. On Saturday the 19th of December we had our annual Christmas party.

We even had a Black Santa and an elf help give presents out to the children. Here is Santa in action!


The children, staff, Santa, and the elf had a blast! Special thanks go to Mr. Claus and his elf for helping us out.

Also, Shiefton is closed now from Saturday 26th December to Saturday 2nd January 2021.


Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas if you are celebrated.
