Welcome to Nevill Road Infant School
Thank you for spending the time to visit our school website.
As Headteacher here at Nevill Road Infants I feel privileged to lead this fantastic school where we can specifically focus on creating the strong foundations which our children’s futures can be built on. We are in a very unique position as a school as we are able to offer places from 2 year olds and full wrap around care from 7.30am-6pm.
At Nevill Road Infants our curriculum is designed to INSPIRE our children to achieve and provide them with the skills, resilience and adaptability to succeed in our ever changing world. We do this within an environment which supports and nurtures the children, developing confidence and positivity.
As a school we focus on developing a love of learning and achieving excellence for all through our high expectations and creative curriculum. Our work builds on the strong foundation of basic skills and develops children’s approaches to learning, ensuring they can adapt to the challenges of our ever changing world.
Our learning environment promotes independent, personalised learning and effective teamwork through our approach which both nurtures and challenges individuals.
Within our school we make sure that “every moment matters”

COVID-19 - updated information
Main Guidance for Primary Age Children
If you suspect your child has coronavirus or has a positive test
Do not send your child to their nursery, childminder, school, college or to an entry test for a selective school if:
- they are showing one or more coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms
- they have had a positive test result
- there are other reasons requiring them to stay at home, for example, they are required to quarantine
You should follow public health advice on when to self-isolate and what to do.
Tracing and self-isolation
Nurseries, schools and colleges only need to trace close contacts up to and including 18 July. From 19 July, as with positive cases in any other setting, NHS Test and Trace will work with the positive case and/or their parents to identify close contacts. This is likely to be a small number of individuals who would be most at risk of contracting COVID-19 due to the nature of the close contact. As parents or carers, you may be contacted to help with identifying close contacts.
Individuals are not required to self-isolate if they live in the same household as someone with COVID-19, or are a close contact of someone with COVID-19, and any of the following apply:
- they are fully vaccinated
- they are below the age of 18 years and 6 months
- they have taken part in or are currently part of an approved COVID-19 vaccine trial
- they are not able to get vaccinated for medical reasons
Instead, NHS Test and Trace will inform affected individuals, children or their parents or carers that they have been in close contact with a positive case, and advise them to take a PCR test. We would encourage all individuals to take a PCR test if advised to do so.
Children and young people aged under 18 years 6 months who usually attend school who have been identified as a close contact should continue to attend school as normal. They do not need to wear a face covering within the school, but it is expected and recommended that these are worn when travelling on public or dedicated transport. Further information is available in the stay at home: guidance for households.
