Welcome to Nelson Infant School - a part of Evolution Academy Trust

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.

    Is my child too ill for school? - Guidance update
    Dear families, As mentioned on March's Newsletter, there has been an attendance campaign launched across the county to help increase school attendance in Norfolk. In collaboration with this campaign, we have revised our school guidance to absences due to illness - electronic copy attached and paper copy will be sent out today too. Further details can be found on the NHS website https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/is-my-child-too-ill-for-school/ or if you are still unsure, please speak to a member of staff in the school office. We also have a close relationship with the Mental Health Support Team who have great knowledge and can offer advice, alongside the wealth of information on the Just One Norfolk website https://www.justonenorfolk.nhs.uk/ where parents can make self-referrals for their children for some services.
