Welcome to Nelson Infants

As Nelson staff, we feel privileged in having the unique job of working alongside our young people to listen and facilitate learning. Our ethos is built on supporting our pupils to be kind, honest, respectful, articulate, brave and curious young people who understand their impact within our world.

Children are at the heart of everything we do. We work hard to develop a strong voice for everyone, so that our direction of learning, curriculum, and experiences are shaped by and for the children.

The Early Years are a unique phase of a child’s development. Our inspirational team are committed to exploring the interests of each and every child, working alongside them to discover and ask questions about ourselves and the world around us. We continue to develop the characteristics of effective learning through our Key Stage 1 settings. Our enquiry-based curriculum contextualises children’s learning; they control and shape the direction in which they want topics to develop. We are proud of how independent our pupils are, using their own digital journals to record evidence of learning and tracking their own next steps to success.

    Lunchtime and Slippers
    Dear families, We are excited to inform you that Sports Factory will be running lunchtime activities for all our children to enjoy during lunchtime, if they wish. Multi-skills Tuesdays, Wow Wednesdays and Football Thursdays. As the wetter weather arrives, we are encouraging children to change into slippers whilst in the classroom, this helps with reducing mud brought in from outside and keeps the children's feet cozy and warm. Please ensure all slippers are named. We would be very grateful for any donations of spare pairs of slippers, please bring them to the school office and we will distribute to the appropriate year group - thank you. Lastly, with the cost of living still increasing, we understand some people's circumstances may have changed. If you feel you may now qualify for Free School Meals/Pupil Premium please click on the link to apply - results are instant. https://www.norfolk.gov.uk/education-and-learning/schools/school-meals-and-milk
