Nelson Primary School is currently CLOSED.

We are not sure when we’ll reopen but will keep families updated on this page. Further information has been sent by parentmail or is under the newsletter section of the website.


Dear Families,

I am writing to give you an initial outline of how we plan to support you and your family in the weeks ahead. The newsletter section also has the latest detailed information.

Our Provision

We are open for the children of Key Workers where emergency childcare is needed. Our key message is that if it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be. Further information for Key Workers is in the newsletter section – if you need to talk to us about this, please email info@nelson.newham.sch.uk or we will be able to answer calls from 8am to answer your questions.

Support for Pupils with Free School Meals

We are able issue vouchers for families eligible for Free School Meals. We will contact you directly in the next few days if this applies to you. More information from Newham can be found here.



1) You will receive your digital voucher to your phone/email very shortly.

2) If you’re not registered for FSM but feel you are eligible you need to register with LA, we cannot backdate vouchers.


Supporting your child’s learning

Our pupils love learning and we’d love to help you to find ways of keeping your children educated over the next few weeks. Please look in your child’s pack or on our online platform purple mash.


Your child will be able to see what to do and have on line discussions with their teacher.

As usual children can do their maths homework on Mathletics


After April 20th there will be a weekly home learning sheet for each Year Group. Please click on our home learning tab of this website. This will help parents to plan out the learning schedule that fits your family circumstances. We do not want you to feel that our offer is placing an additional burden on your family. Please do what you can when you can, but concentrate first on making sure that your family is safe and happy.

Support for parents/carers and families of children SEND 

This is an information sheet is aimed at parents/carers and families of children and young people with SEND and brings together some essential contact numbers and websites in one place for easy access.  Information sheet for SEND parents.

Visit Newham Local Offer and Family Information website: www.families.newham.gov.uk and Council website: www.newham.gov.uk for more information.

Stay safe and keep well,

Fiona Cullen

Head Teacher




Welcome to the website of Nelson Primary School

Thank you for choosing to browse our website. Whether your mission is to gather information or just curiosity we hope that the site is clear and easy to navigate. Ambition and achievement drives everything that we do at Nelson Primary School.

Our job, in partnership with parents, is to build the foundations for a successful education, to enable each child to discover the joy of learning, to help them to fulfil every aspect of their potential and to encourage their growth into effective and confident citizens, ready to play their part in the world and their community.

We work hard to ensure that every child is successful in the key areas of English and Maths and we are keen to see this recognised in the results they secure. However, we also want them to learn and experience more than this through a varied curriculum and a range of extra-curricular and after-school opportunities that complement our work in the classroom and our commitment to global education. We value each child as an individual and aim to provide the opportunities for pupils to excel in areas where they have a special talent whether this is in science, in sport, in drama, in art, in music or through involvement in our school council or our debate team.

We are pleased to have recently formed a Multi-Academy Trust (New Vision Trust) with three other local schools. We look forward to working collaboratively with our new partners to ensure that our provision for our pupils, staff and local community is of the highest quality.

This website offers an insight into our school – a glimpse of our values, curriculum, events and community. If you would like to know more then you are encouraged to contact the school office and arrange a visit to see us at work.
