Welcome to St Nicholas' CE (VC) First School
Welcome to St Nicholas' Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) First School. This website will give you an insight into school life at St Nic's, helping you learn a little about school organisation and events, as well as teaching and learning and latest news.
Our vision is...
"to provide an innovative and stimulating environment offering a wealth of experiences to inspire all in our school community. Together we will find and believe in our skills and abilities and develop a love of learning within a nurturing, caring Christian faith."
We believe that a child's school life should be supported by teachers and parents working together. We know that children learn best when they feel valued and supported and understand the boundaries set on their behaviour. Children at St Nicholas are well motivated to learn and are supported by praise and rewards to encourage them to strive for success.
As a school we are committed to ensuring all of our children make very good progress in knowledge and skills across the curriculum, but particularly reaching the highest standards in Mathematics and English. Adults work in partnership to prepare children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.
As a church school we work in close partnership with St Nicholas Church and celebrate our Christian character. Children, staff and governors were recognised for their commitment to developing as a Christian community in the 2013 Outstanding SIAS inspection which led to the school being awarded Beacon School Status. We hope that all who visit us in school experience the unique atmosphere that makes St Nics such a happy school.
Please do come and visit us to find out more, we will be pleased to welcome you to our school.
