Following the Government’s announcement on Monday 4th January Nelson Infant School must remain closed until at least February half term, except for pupils of keyworkers or vulnerable pupils. 

All other children will be able to access learning remotely via the school’s home learning platform, Seesaw.

Children will need their Seesaw code and access to the internet.  There will be live daily lessons and assembly as well as independent work.

If you need to contact us the school office is open as usual, you can contact our Parent Support Advisors Rebecca Robinson or Zowie Glen in the normal way and a member of SLT will be on site each day.

Thank you again for your continued support during this very difficult time. We look forward to welcoming you all back as soon as possible.

Stay safe, Victoria McConnell – Headteacher.

A Message from our Headteacher

We are so privileged in having the unique job of working alongside young people to help listen to and support them. To be kind, honest, and respectful, articulate, brave and wise young people who understand their place and their impact within our world.

We are a school for children, this may sound like an obvious statement but it can be easy to forget. Children are at the heart of everything we do. We work hard to develop a strong voice for everyone, so that the school’s direction, curriculum, structure and experiences are shaped by and through the children.

The Early Years are a unique phase of a child’s development. Our school is committed to working at the speed of every child to discover and ask questions about ourselves and the world around us.

The Thrive approach is one of our key drivers at Nelson. We prioritise the emotional wellbeing of our entire school community over and above all else, keeping the Thrive vital relational functions at the heart of all our interactions with children, colleagues and parents.

Our curriculum is based on enquiry so children can put their learning into context and shape the direction in which they want topics to develop.

Oracy is our integral in our school as we believe developing this skill is crucial to success in life. We hope that in developing this articulacy alongside our three strong values of honesty, kindness and respect, we set children up in the best way possible way to succeed later in life. If you want to see this in action please do not hesitste in getting in touch and coming in to speak with the children or any member of our school community.
