We are pleased to announce that in April 2017 we were graded by ofsted as 'a good school'. Comments included "pupils say they enjoy coming to school and feel safe" and "children in upper key stage 2 are making rapid progress both in arithmetic and writing".
Welcome to St. Nicholas Primary School. It is a privilege to be part of such a wonderful community of staff, governors, parents and friends of the school who are committed to helping every child reach their full potential. Our aim is to provide a supportive and safe environment which encourages and challenges all children to do their best. We celebrate our individual differences and our successes at every opportunity and nurture personal, social, moral and creative development alongside academic achievements.
We use our beautiful location to enable the children to engage with the outdoor areas of our school, surrounding woodlands and fields to ensure that our curriculum is exciting, engaging and relevant. Opportunities for taking responsibility and caring for the many species that we share our world with help our children to become independent and confident learners with a love of learning that they will take with them through life. We know that developing positive self esteem and a ‘can-do’ attitude is a big part of achieving academic success and supports the development of respect and tolerance required to become good citizens in the future.
I believe that strong, positive partnerships with both parents and the local community will support our children in their learning journey and enable them to embrace the next stage of their education with confidence and self belief. I think that St. Nicholas School is a very special place full of amazing children and positive, caring adults. Do come and visit to see for yourself! Please use our website for an insight into some of the fantastic things we have been learning or contact Mrs Wall or Mrs Lewis in the school office, on 01380 850391 to book an appointment for a visit. We look forward to meeting you. Mrs. Jo Lewis. Headteacher
