Our vision: Nelmes Primary school will offer a stimulating learning environment which promotes high expectations. It is a community where all individuals are valued and respected.

The staff, Governors and children of Nelmes Primary school welcome you to our website. We are a two-form entry school located in Hornchurch on a pleasant and spacious site.  

Our mission statement – “Opportunities for Achievement” embodies our whole school ethos.  We provide a warm and caring environment where each child is valued and quickly becomes part of the Nelmes’ family. Our outstanding staff work very hard to ensure pupil attainment and achievement is excellent; we are committed to promoting the moral and social, cultural, spiritual and physical development of all our children. 

We passionately believe in our key learning behaviours; aspiration, self-belief, resilience, perseverance and patience. These challenging yet vital attitudes will enable our children to develop the determination they need to succeed.

It is our strong belief that staff, parents and children all working together will ensure that the children at our school make the best possible start in life. At Nelmes Primary School the children are given the opportunity to be the best they can be. 

We hope you enjoy visiting our website.  Please take a good look around to find out lots of information about Nelmes Primary School.
