At St. Nicholas School we aim to offer equal opportunities for all of our pupils whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, ability and background. In order to achieve this aim we endeavour to ensure that progress and attainment are equal for all. As a Christian School we believe that every child has unique characteristics, abilities and learning needs. We believe all children have a fundamental right to an education system designed to value and take into account a wide diversity of need and culture. We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind against our pupils, parents or staff.


  • To create a safe, encouraging atmosphere, which fosters a sense of community where everyone feels valued and respected.
  • To create an environment in which our pupils can learn.
  • To develop a growing awareness of the responsibilities that are a part of living and working in a community.
  • To ensure that children have the opportunity to thrive regardless of race, gender, aptitude or physical attributes.

In order to achieve these aims, we will :

  • Be consistent in our approach.
  • Use praise more readily than sanctions.
  • Recognise the importance of a positive self image.
  • Ensure the curriculum followed by the pupils is stimulating, matched to individual needs and interests, and that assessment is supportive and not threatening.
  • Recognise and praise good behaviour and seek to promote positive aspects of self discipline and social responsibility.

We all agree that:

  • There is a link between the behaviour of pupils and the environment in which they work and play and so pupils must be encouraged to care for their environment.
  • Good home/school links are crucial and parents should be informed of good behaviour, as well as consulted about bad behaviour.
  • All pupils should be given appropriate responsibilities.
  • Non academic achievements should be recognised.

Strategies to promote good behaviour

All the staff at St Nicholas Infant School encourage a positive approach to learning and discipline throughout the school and in their classrooms. The school rules, displayed throughout the building, reflect this positive approach and are a constant point of reference for expected standards of behaviour.

The following strategies are employed to promote a good learning environment and to help to prevent discipline problems arising.

1. Well organised classrooms with appropriate materials and resources.

2. Careful planning of the curriculum with differentiation for the individual needs of the child.

3. A system for rewarding positive behaviour and personal achievement.

4. A clear set of positive rules that are reinforced regularly.

5. Aesthetic displays of children’s work throughout the school.

6. A well supervised, stimulating playground environment with suitable equipment for play and games.

Praise and Reward System

  • Teachers inform parents informally at the end of the day of any praiseworthy behaviour.
  • Each class nominates good citizens every month. Certificates are presented in assembly and displayed for a month.
  • Effort, behaviour and achievement are valued and celebrated by all staff and is recorded in the Headteacher’s Celebration Book. Entries are read out in assembly every Friday.
  • Children sent to show exceptional work or to report good behaviour to other members of staff eg A previous teacher, a curriculum co-ordinator.
  • Special responsibilities given within the class e.g. taking the register.
  • Special school responsibilities given to the oldest children e.g. Library duties, lunch trolley monitors and playtime helpers.

At St. Nicholas’ Infant School we aim to have the highest possible consensus about standards of behaviour among staff, pupils and parents. All our children understand the School Rules and the reasons for them, as well as the sanctions that will be imposed if they are not followed. Parents are informed of the schools expectations of its pupils through the Home School Agreement. Further information regarding sanctions for unacceptable behaviour can be found in our Policy Statement on Strategies and Procedures for Discipline.

Rules of St. Nicholas C.E. Infant School

Our School is a happy and safe place because we keep the Golden Rules

At St. Nicholas we believe in the importance of partnership with parents. We listen and talk to parents, encouraging and helping them to support their children at home and at school. We have regular termly Parent's consultation evenings and teachers are always available before and after school, to help with any concerns or queries.

We welcome enthusiastic parents into school to work with individuals or small groups of children. Teachers and parents liaise to arrange flexible and convenient times. "All parents helping in school are required to complete a CRB check in accordance with school safeguarding procedures.”

The school has an active P.T.F.A (Parents, teachers and friends association). Meetings are held termly during school time and parents who wish to attend are welcome to bring younger children along. The P.T.F.A organise fund raising activities including the Christmas fair and sponsored events. A popular cake stall is also run by the P.T.F.A and bakers are always appreciated.
