Welcome to St Nicholas' Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School, Rawreth.
On behalf of the children and staff at St. Nicholas C of E Primary School, I would like to welcome you to our website. We aim to give you a flavour of our remarkable learning community. However, a website is no substitute for experience and we would welcome you should you wish to come and view our school. We are always very pleased to welcome visitors and new children into our community. If you would like to have a look around our school and to meet with me, or would like to discuss the possibility of sending your child to St. Nicholas Cof E Primary School, please do book an appointment through Mr Miller in the school office. We would be delighted to speak to you.
Learning is a journey that enables students to prepare for their futures. Our motto, “caring and preparing for a confident future,” is something that we firmly believe in and underpins everything that we do. We take our responsibilities towards education very seriously and, in partnership with parents/carers and the wider community, we aim to prepare children through the formal and informal curriculum for global citizenship. We do this in a safe, secure and thriving environment. We aim to provide children with a love of learning, social competence and the best possible tools to succeed, personally, academically, spiritually, morally and socially in a fast paced, ever changing and technological 21st Century.
We are a Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School and we have worked hard to develop the Christian ethos of our school which is reflected through our work and through our successes. We are a real community and work together for the good of all of our learners. The caring, Christian and ethos of the school is firmly based on our core values, remind all of us that we must consistently strive to achieve and exceed our potential.
Thank you for visiting our website. If you require paper copies of any of the information on this website, please contact the school office on 01268 786874 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Executive Head Teacher.
Our School is a voluntary controlled school. This means that, in our case, we are a religious, Church of England school but the Local Authority has responsibility for the school. However, anybody can apply for a place at our school and applications will be considered by the Local Authority following the most recent admissions criteria.
The Local Authority is also responsible for:
• Employing the staff
• Setting the admissions criteria.
In Voluntary Controlled schools, the land and buildings are normally owned by a charity. The charity appoints some of the Governors. In our case, the Local Authority owns the land and buildings.
We follow the National Curriculum and are regularly inspected by OfSTED and we also have Anglican Church inspections on a regular basis. Please visit the relevant pages of the site for more details on our curriculum and our teaching methods.
St. Nicholas CofE Primary School has strong links with St. Nicholas Church in Rawreth. Until recently, the school and the church were sited next door to each other.
The Rector, Revd. Richard Jordan is a frequent visitor to the school and has worked with the children on a number of different projects.
St. Nicholas Church is a very active church with an interesting history. If you wish to attend a service at St. Nicholas, the following information may be of interest....
We cannot work in isolation as a school to provide the best for every child. We rely on the whole community to support us.
