The Friends of Nelson Infant School
We do hope that you will want to be involved in activities organised by the The Friends of Nelson Infant School. They would be delighted if you are able to join their committee, which meets about once a half term. They raise funds for the extras for our school and arrange a variety of activities. The Friends have recently raised money for, and purchased a new outdoor classroom. Activities they have organised in the past include:
• Christmas raffle
• Easter egg raffle
• School discos
• Non-uniform day
• Summer Fete
Every year, the Friends also purchase a Christmas present for every child, and books for year 2 leavers.
The Friends is affiliated to the National Confederation of Parent/Teacher Association (NCPTA)
As a school we encourage children to raise funds for various charities. At present, the school sponsors Yainkain, a child from Sierra Leone, through Action Aid. The school also supports Jeans for Genes day. Each year the school also supports Children in Need, Red Nose Day and the BEFA sugar collection.
