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.

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.

    Christmas Fayre
    As you all know it’s coming around to that time of year again – CHRISTMAS! As usual we will be holding our Christmas Fayre on Friday 2nd December, from 3pm. There will be lots of stalls for the children to enjoy including Santa’s Grotto, so mark the date in your diary as you won’t want to miss this fantastic event! We would like to ask for any donations of raffle prizes vouchers, gifts, chocolates, wine, toys etc . Anything that you could donate would be greatly appreciated. Please leave them with Brenda or Carly in the school office by Monday 28th November. Raffle tickets will be sent home next week for you to buy or sell to friends and family. £1 each ticket or £5 per book, please return the completed stubs and cash to the school office by Friday 2nd December. We are sending bags home again next week for our popular ‘Sweet Tombola’. It would be great if you could fill yours with WRAPPED sweets or small treats. We also require empty wine bottles (screw top only - with the lid please) for our 'Wine or Water' game. The PTFA would like to say a big THANK YOU for your continued support. Our children really enjoy the fun activities during the year, like the discos and all the money raised is spent in the school on equipment and events or help to fund school trips, which benefits all children in the school. It would be great if you could spare a little time to help out during the Christmas Fayre, setting up or perhaps on a stall. Even 15 minutes of your time would be hugely appreciated. Please speak to Brenda or Carly in the office if you are able to help.

    Headlice advice
    We have had a few cases of headlice (nits) reported in school this week. NHS advice is: Head lice and nits are very common in young children and their families. They do not have anything to do with dirty hair and are picked up by head-to-head contact. There's no need for children to stay off school or to wash laundry on a hot wash. * Head lice are small insects, up to 3mm long. * Head lice eggs (nits) are brown or white (empty shells) and attached to the hair. *Head lice can make your head feel itchy - like something is moving in your hair. *The only way to be sure someone has head lice is by finding live lice. You can do this by combing their hair with a special fine-toothed comb (detection comb). You can buy these online or at pharmacies. How to get rid of head lice. - You can treat head lice without seeing a GP. - Treat head lice as soon as you spot them. - You should check everyone in the house and start treating anyone who has head lice on the same day. - Lice and nits can be removed by wet combing. You should try this method first. - You can buy a special fine-toothed comb (detection comb) online or from pharmacies to remove head lice and nits. There may be instructions on the pack, but usually you: - Wash hair with ordinary shampoo - Apply lots of conditioner (any conditioner will do) comb the whole head of hair, from the roots to the ends - It usually takes about 10 minutes to comb short hair, and 20 to 30 minutes for long, frizzy or curly hair. - Do wet combing on days 1, 5, 9 and 13 to catch any newly hatched head lice. Check again that everyone's hair is free of lice on day 17. Medicated lotions and sprays - Ask a pharmacist for advice if you have tried wet combing for 17 days, but your child still has live head lice. - They may recommend using medicated lotions and sprays. These kill head lice in all types of hair, and you can buy them from pharmacies, supermarkets or online. -Head lice should die within a day. Some lotions and sprays come with a comb to remove dead lice and eggs. -Some treatments need to be repeated after a week to kill any newly hatched lice. -Check the pack to see if they're OK for you or your child and how to use them. -If lotions or sprays do not work, speak to a pharmacist about other treatments. You cannot prevent head lice. There's nothing you can do to prevent head lice. You can help stop them spreading by wet or dry combing regularly to catch them early. Do not use medicated lotions and sprays to prevent head lice. They can irritate the scalp. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/head-lice-and-nits/

    Dressing for Forest School/Outdoor Learning
    As we move into colder, wetter weather it is essential the children are kitted out appropriately. In order to enjoy the seasons comfortably and learn to love the outdoors, waterproof coat and trousers as well as wellies need to be kept in school. It would also be amazing if you could practice with your child at home how to dress for the weather.
