Values and Ethos

'Team Nelson: Together We Shine'


Headteacher- Miss Forrest


At Nelson we create a happy school with an inclusive learning community amid a culture of excellence for all. We believe in our pupils and aspire to ensure that every child in our care discovers the skills for lifelong learning and is supported to develop as a valuable member of the community.


We have three ‘Diamond Rules’ which represent our values. These are:

1. Show respect and good manners.
2. Follow instructions with thought and care.
3. Care for everyone and everything.

There is a driving determination and commitment from the Nelson staff to provide the very best education for our pupils. We strive to offer high standards of teaching and learning experiences within a holistic curriculum compassing moral, social and spiritual values. Our motto, Team Nelson: Together We Shine, represents our shared ethos: Our diversity is celebrated, our individual uniqueness is recognised and understood, but together we are stronger, can achieve more and are able to excel in all we do.


Parents and carers are part of the team. For children to reach their full potential we need to work in partnership to help each and everyone do their best and encourage the confidence in themselves that we have in them. We work tirelessly to support families and will go the extra mile to assist in any way we can for the good of our pupils.
