Nelson Primary School Mini Marathon October 2020

Well done to all the children from years 3-6 who are running a 2.6 mile mini marathon to raise money for our school as part of the Virgin Money 2.6 challenge. 

ALL the money raised will pay for ongoing school improvements. We’re hoping to fund an upgrade of the reception playground to create a more exciting and creative play space and also purchase of a set of Apple iPads to support the learning of technology in the classrooms. 

Please CLICK HERE if you would like to donate to our school fund and support this great cause!

Thanks for your support 🙂

Nelson School Uniform

We have a selection of donated Nelson School uniform, all washed and ready to sell by the PTA uniform team. This helps the environment as well as raising valuable funds for our school. 

If you would like any items, please choose and pay from our online selection.  Items will be wrapped and distributed by the PTA uniform team directly to your child’s classroom on a weekly basis.

Please Click Here to Order or Find Out More

If you have any Nelson Uniform in good condition that you no longer need, feel free to  donate it via the school office. Please remove all labels and wash all items before donating. Currently we are only collecting items with Nelson logos (jumpers, cardigans, hoodies, PE shirts) and grey items (skirts/pinafores/trousers).    PE hoodies, zip-up fleeces and PE T shirts are especially welcome at the moment.

Thank you for your support 🙂
