Welcome to Nelson St Philip's Church of England Primary School
Welcome to St Philip's Church England Primary School…..the small school with the Big Heart. This website is intended to give you some information about our school. It cannot tell you everything, and we hope you will visit the school, ask questions and form your own impressions!
At St Philip's we endeavour to make learning an exciting adventure for all our children. We want every pupil to achieve their full potential and ensure that they are fully prepared for the challenges that lie ahead in their secondary education and the world of work.
“We love to learn, we learn to love, with Christ as our guide we love and learn together”
Our children are encouraged to respect their own faith and those of others in our caring Christian environment.
We are always ready to listen to your ideas, your suggestions and your concerns as we aim to ensure that your child will be happy during their time here. Should there be any problem, at home or at school, which you think may be unsettling your child, please let me, or the class teacher know so that we can take this into account. We shall certainly do our best to make his/her school days as enjoyable and as successful as possible.
Parents are welcome to share in the learning activities in school with their children through ‘Friday Friends’ which is held weekly by each class on a rotational basis.
We keep all parents informed by text; letter or press announcement of events in school; letters home; attendance; school trips; non-uniform days and homework. It is important to feel a part of your child’s learning journey and we are always happy to see you in school.
We welcome your help and your support. Only by working together in trust and in friendship can we hope to allow your child to make the most of the opportunities.
If you require a paper copy of any of the information on the school's website, please ask and this will be provided free of charge.
Please contact Mrs. J. Hartley or Mrs. A. Harvey in the School Office with any enquiries - 01282 614463.
