Ours is a village school full of cheerfulness and enthusiasm. It has a most interesting history going back over one hundred years. Many members of the community attended the school themselves and continue to give us wonderful support. Although we are a ‘Co-educational Village School’, we do accept pupils from further afield, whose parents are looking for a small active school with a warm atmosphere, where the experienced staff are dedicated to providing a rich learning environment.

Our aim is to help children reach their full potential.

The School has five classrooms, two study areas and we have a new library and information technology suite with multi-media facilities. Our spacious School Hall is used for concerts, gymnastics, games, assemblies and dinners.

We have a large imaginatively planned playground, used during playtimes and for a wide variety of curricular and extra-curricular activities. The large level playing field is devoted to sport and play with an Adventure Trail and Tower. The School also has a tranquil wild area and pond, which we use for environmental studies and a garden, which has been developed by the School Gardening Club.

The school is used by the local community for a variety of events such as Brownies, Rainbows, Woodcraft Folk, Yoga, Family Learning, the Horticultural Show and major Village Events.


As a school we value and promote:

· A community in which staff and children are valued alike.

· Support for one another in improving and enhancing teaching and learning.

· Teamwork and partnership within the staff.

· A successful and constructive partnership with parents.

· Respect for the fabric of, and equipment within, the school.

· Appreciation and care of the environment, especially that in which we live.

· Pride in being a member of Niton Primary School.

· Welcoming attitudes towards visitors.

· A high standard of presentation and personal appearance.

· The maximisation of potential.

· A sense of humour.


The Foundation Curriculum

We believe that the children need to have a sense of belonging and self-confidence.

They need to be encouraged to contribute and to participate, take risks and make

mistakes safely; to make connections and to think imaginatively and work

independently to express their thoughts, feelings and ideas in an encouraging and

supportive environment, to help build self esteem and self confidence.

The Reception Class undertakes the Foundation Stage:

· Personal, Social and Emotional Development

· Language and Literacy

· Mathematical Development

· Knowledge and Understanding of the World

· Physical Development

· Creative Development

The National Curriculum

In Year 1 all pupils are taught in accordance with the National Curriculum which

extends the framework of The Foundation Key Stage and ensures the development of

a child as he/she moves through the school.

The requirements of the National Curriculum are: -

Core Subjects: English, Mathematics, Science and Information Communication

Technology (ICT)

Foundation Subjects: Design Technology, Physical Education, Art, Music, History,

and Geography.


Clothing and Uniform

Although we have no compulsory school uniform, following the wishes of parents, our school does have its own identity. We ask you to encourage your child to wear the following:

School Sweatshirt *

School Fleece Jacket*

Grey Trousers, Skirt or Shorts

Plain White Polo Shirt *

Summer Dress, Pale Blue Check


Your child will go out of doors on many occasions during the school day. We ask that footwear be well fitting and waterproof. Trainers are generally inadequate for this purpose.

P.E. Kit

Your child will require a P.E. kit consisting of:

School ‘T’ shirt*

Blue shorts


Contained in a drawstring bag. The Kit should be brought to school on a Monday morning and taken home to be washed during holiday periods.

* These items may be purchased from school. Also, there is a Thrift Shop where good quality nearly new uniform is available.
