How to Keep Your Child Safe During the Coronavirus Pandemic
The Children’s Commissioner has published a children’s guide to Coronavirus. The guide helps to explain the situation and aims to answer questions. It also gives guidance on how to talk to children about Coronavirus, how to stay safe, protect other people and how to help them make the best of their time at home.

On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, I would like to welcome you to the Diamond Wood Community Academy website. We are a school which believes in the value of every child and adult who enters our doors.
We are very proud of our school. Diamond Wood is a friendly, caring environment, where work and play go hand-in-hand. We offer a strong sense of community, with close ties with parents and carers. We recognise the crucial importance of a three-way partnership between school, children, and parents/carers, and endeavour to build positive relationships to ensure that all of our children reach their full potential. A successful partnership depends on close co-operation, support and trust, between home and school, and recognition that we have a shared responsibility.
We ensure that our children are educated within a caring, happy, warm and welcoming environment, with a rich and challenging curriculum, in a stimulating environment.
With our dedicated staff, we strive to achieve the very best for every child. This is so they can build a firm foundation of skills, whilst further developing their lively enquiring minds, leaving them equipped for the world in which we live.
If you have any queries please contact our Rachael Hughes in the first instance, Tel: 01924 325308. You will then be directed accordingly.
We hope you will enjoy your journey with us at Diamond Wood Community Academy.
Mrs S Titherington
Head of School

Our Community Response helpline is open
We’ve opened a new dedicated helpline as part of our Covid-19 Community Response.
We’re working alongside our citizens and local organisations to make sure that together we can all support our neighbours and communities over the coming weeks. We’re working especially closely with local voluntary sector organisations through our partners at Volunteering Kirklees (part of Third Sector Leaders).
Together we’ve developed a co-ordinated Community Response, including a Kirklees Council helpline and online forms that anyone can use to either request help, or to offer support to others. Our response teams in local places will be matching requests for help with offers of support, so that we can work together to support the most vulnerable in our communities.
How to request support or offer support
Anyone can let us know about the things they need help with, or that someone who they are concerned about might need help with. Individuals, organisations and businesses can also tell us about the support they may be able to offer to others.
· Online forms: Covid-19 Community Response
· Community Response helpline: 01484 226919
The helpline is managed by Kirklees Direct and opened at 9am on Wednesday 25th March. It will initially be open from 8am to 6pm weekdays. We will review this daily. Citizens and organisations can share information with us online at any time.
