The governing body and school leadership at St. Nicholas C of E Primary School aim to provide the children in our school the chance to engage with the outdoor areas of our school, surrounding woodlands and fields to enhance our curriculum. Children are encouraged to engage with native flora, fauna and wildlife to enhance learning as well as cultivating responsibility – looking after the vast number of species we share our world with. In both staff and pupils we aim to develop confident, independent learners, who leave us with a growth mindset, love of learning and in the best position they can achieve to move on to the next step in their education or career. We aim to be community focused, building links with the Church, Chapel and other organisations across the village and using these to provide a richer, fuller experience for the children at our school.
Our school motto is "A Variety of Gifts but the Same Spirit" - 1 Corinthians 12. This represents our ethos. We respect and believe that we are all unique and come to school each day with different experiences of life and a range of skills to share. We are all working towards the same aim and with the same purpose. We aim to nurture and develop the spiritual, social, emotional, physical and academic skills of the children. This gives them the confidence to take on the challenges they face at every stage of their life, with us and beyond.
