A very warm welcome to the Internet web site of St Nicholas CE Middle school in the Worcestershire village of Pinvin.
At our school we currently have some 324 children working in National Curriculum Years 5, 6 and 7, following a broad and balanced curriculum, which builds on the work they have undertaken in first school and prepares them for High School.
We work together to provide a friendly, positive and challenging learning environment, where everyone is valued and can achieve success. At school children experience a wide variety of learning opportunities which, whilst developing knowledge and skills, also promote moral, social, spiritual and cultural development. And, in all of our work we aim to foster a strong partnership between school and home.
We have established a number of core values, which lie at the heart of our school and define how we approach all aspects of our work. They emanate from our Christian foundation and operate within a framework/culture of happiness and success.
In the context of these core values (which are unchanging) we have a goal, which defines where we want our school to be in the future and it guides all the decisions we make:
Five years from now we want to be awared the rare, top national grade for schools (by OFSTED) of "outstanding."
To achieve this "outstanding practice" means:
- Parents aspire for their children to attend our school;
- Staff prize working here and our work is upheld as examples of best practice in teaching;
- When pupils leave our school they will have experienced something special, character forming and of lasting value. They will treasure their time at St Nicholas.
Since 2002 we have been working towards this goal and, as a result, many special developments have already been achieved. Those of our achievements, which have recieved national recognition, are shown in the section "Awards"
Each Year Group has its own area within the school and is divided into four classes.
The majority of our pupils join us from the main feeder first schools in Crowle, Fladbury, Flyford Flavell, Himbleton, Inkberrow, Pinvin and Upton Snodsbury. We are situated in lovely grounds with many interesting features.
