Nelson Infant School was opened in 1910 and built to take the overflow of children from the Church School in the grounds of Kneller Hall, housed in a large hut in Nelson Road. New buildings were completed in 1928, and there have been several additions since then.

Our exceptionally large playing field is a tremendous asset providing the children with a pleasant, green and open environment in which to learn and play.

We offer a Breakfast Club for our children from Reception to Year 6 from 7.35am to school start time each day. It provides safe and creative play and care for children before the school day begins. It is open on all school days and is located in the school gym.

We also offer a range of activity clubs for most year groups across lunchtimes and after school.

We have been working hard to forge links with the local community.

As part of our Harvest Celebrations we invited local community representatives and leaders to attend a special assembly where we collected food for Richmond Food Bank. We invited a representative from the Food Bank who was amazed at the generosity of our families. We had so much food that we took some over to the Tea Rooms. The Crew Captains did a wonderful job organising the morning and all of the children from nursery to year 6 sang beautifully.


Reception children were very excited to be visited by the local police officers and fire fighters. They were lucky enough to dress in their uniforms, sit in the fire engine and even squirt their hose!
