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.

    Dear families, This half term all year groups will be beginning a dance unit in P.E. which is a statutory element of the National Curriculum. Please download the Progression of Skills and Long Term Curriculum documents from our website for more information - these will show you exactly what your child will be learning in P.E. this year. All our taught P.E. lessons are led by Tim Henery's coaching team from Sports Factory, who is a qualified coach, gymnastics and dance instructor.

    Relationships, Sex and Health Education curriculum
    Dear families, We have been made aware that there is some inflammatory information being widely shared on social media at the moment around the statutory Relationships, Sex and Health Education curriculum. The Sex Education element of the curriculum is not taught until KS2, so we refer to the subject as Relationships and Health Education (RHE) which falls within the umbrella subject of Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE). We use a learning scheme called Jigsaw to plan and teach RHE at Nelson. Please take a few minutes to read the following guidance documents on our website for clarity of our approach to the teaching of RHE at Nelson https://www.nelson.norfolk.sch.uk/norfolk/primary/nelson/site/pages/keyinfo/policies Department for Education statutory guidance Relationship and Health Education Policy (Nelson Infant School) Jigsaw Summary of Learning If you have any further questions or queries, please don't hesitate to make an appointment to meet with me via office@nelson.norfolk.sch.uk or catch me on the gate.

    PE and forest school timetable for Spring term
    Dear families, Please find attached our Spring term timetables for PE and Forest School lessons: Year 2 - Mondays Year 1 - Tuesdays Reception - Thursdays (stay and play) The timetable will come into practice from the week commencing MONDAY 9th JANUARY. We have changed the timetable to maximise the quality and time spent on outdoor learning and traditional P.E. sessions. Previously the children would have both sessions in one afternoon per week (1 - 3pm) with changing spaces and clothes/footwear etc within that time during the handover. The forest school and P.E. teams were concerned that the quality of each session was becoming hindered by this time constraint. We have decided to trial a fortnightly approach, so that the children will have a full 2 hours of direct teaching of P.E. one week, and then a full 2 hours forest school/outdoor learning the next. This should allow each session to be more purposeful, and lead to increased progression of skills, confidence etc. This term, we also have sports factory running lunchtime sports 3 days per week, and a football option on the other two at lunchtimes, which children can opt to join (most do - for at least one or more sessions). Our long-term planning also includes a block of gardening for each year group in our school allotment. As always any queries, please feel free to come and speak to us.
