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. In March 2022 OFSTED recognised  the excellent progress the school has made since the last inspection:

“Pupils are enthusiastic about their learning and do well at this school. Leaders and staff are ambitious for pupils….Pupils are welcomed and included regardless of their background …”

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.

In March 2018, we formed a multi-academy trust, The New Vision Trust, with three other successful schools in Newham. Working collaboratively with our partners has ensured that the education we provide 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.
