Thank You Teacher 

In order to celebrate our incredible teachers and staff at Nelson Academy, FON are putting on a staff quiz night to support staff well-being and thank them for all that they do! We will be putting on a little spread of drinks and nibbles on Wednesday July 19th. As the word got out, some parents have asked FON if they can donate sweets and treats to show their appreciation. We wanted to give everyone the chance to do the same! Donations can be left at the office, or children may delivery the treats themselves to Wren Class. Our children are very lucky to have you Nelson Staff….FON can’t wait to thank you properly!

NELFEST 22nd September 2023

Nelfest is coming to Nelson Academy on Friday 22nd September. Make sure you save the date!

Non-Uniform Day Friday 23rd June

To help FON prepare for the Summer Fayre, Nel would like you to enjoy a NON-UNIFORM day!
Instead of cash, we were hoping for raffle prize donations. Due to the HUGE success of our previous 'Bottle in a bag’ stall, we were hoping to run another one! Your donations could help us! Bottles could be anything....water, toiletries or grown up drinks (please give grown up drinks directly to the office). Thank you for your support in advance!

Summer Fayre Friday 7th July - TO BE RESCHDULED

Would you like a stall? If so, please comment below...the price for parents/carers will be £5 and the price for external businesses will be £10.

Due to circumstances out of our control, we have had to postpone our summer fayre. Please stay tuned for updates….. and FON’s plan B 🐘
We are pleased to announce that we will be supporting all sports day events and theatre club’s amazing Mary Poppins performances.

Look out for Nelfest which is coming in September!
