‘A place where everybody matters’

Our school vision is at the heart of everything we do at Nelson Infant School. We have developed an ambitious curriculum which is broad, balanced and which builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children, whatever their starting points. We use an Inquiry-Based curriculum where the children lead the learning. Check out our handy guide below!

Our curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the Early Years Framework and National Curriculum and other experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of the pupils in our school. Learning always has a destination in mind, and rigorous tracking of skills underpin all our projects, but our learning often takes a curious path!

The aim of our curriculum is for pupils to own their learning, to develop their curiosity, to become experts in the area they are studying and to understand how to reflect and build on skills already learnt.
