WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL!!!
The education we provide is within the teachings of the Catholic Church, St Nicholas’ places Christ at the centre of all we do, children are taught to nurture their relationship with God and through this, their interactions with others. Our whole school community has a common aim ‘to present, live and celebrate the Christian vision’
We offer a talented and committed team of staff who are dedicated to enriching children’s experiences through a rich and diverse curriculum. We offer strong links with the parishes we serve and the wider community.
The School will aim to develop lively and enquiring minds, develop children’s literacy and numeracy, maintain their interest in learning with enriching and stimulating experiences through physical activities, the creative arts and first hand experiences.
During their years at school, children will be expected to develop their own individual talents, will be able to read, write, speak well and enjoy books both at home and in school. The children will be encouraged to develop skills to ensure a good understanding of maths and science. We also aim to actively promote breadth and balance throughout the whole curriculum stimulating thought and discussion in enquiry based subjects.
Children will be expected to develop the capacity to work on their own and with others and to use their initiative in any situation.
The School will endeavour to fully utilise the most valuable resources within the School by ensuring that the teaching and non-teaching staff use to the full their skills and talents to teach. It should provide a role model which inspires and encourages all to continue on their journey of faith.
The School will aim to establish a friendly, welcome and warm relationship with parents, parishes and community. The active involvement of clergy, parents, governors and the local community in the life of the School is of paramount importance if close, visible and genuine relationships are to be maintained.
The Governors welcome and accept the curriculum guidelines issued by the Local Education Authority and their curriculum statement.
