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.
