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. We are committed to inclusive practice and to celebrating the diversity and uniqueness of our school community. And now, in 2023 Ofsted have recognised us as officially a GOOD school. 

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 knowledge-based curriculum contextualises children’s learning; they know more and remember more each day. 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.

    Attendance matters
    Dear families, What a wonderful first few days back at school. The children have settle well into their new classes and their learning has set off to a great start. Research has shown that there is a strong link between levels of attendance at school and levels of achievement. For your child to reach their full potential at school we look for an attendance level of 96% and above. Please find attached our Legal Attendance letter, a leaflet on supporting good attendance, our illness guide and a flow chart of the attendance processes in school. If you have any concerns or questions about your child's attendance or would like to discuss our school attendance procedures further please speak to Carly Green in the school office. Thank you for your support.

    RAAC information
    Dear families, You may have heard the news about Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) being found in small number of school buildings across the country. We would like to reassure you that our Head of Estates conducted a review of all our buildings in March 2023 and no RAAC was found. This was also based on reviews of school construction plans obtained from Suffolk and Norfolk County Council. To validate our findings further, we are also currently overseeing external reviews and as always, we will keep you updated. I hope this will allay any worries you may have had about the schools in our Trust. If you have any further queries about RAAC, please visit this Department for Education website or contact our school on 01603 620344.
