Welcome to St Nicholas Church of England Primary School’s website 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 ethos of the school is firmly based on our core values, which remind all of us that we must consistently strive to achieve and exceed our potential.
We are a busy but friendly school; with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.
We are very proud of our school and fully recognise the significant role that parents play. Confidence in a school comes from knowing and understanding what is happening within it. I hope you will take advantage of the occasions for meeting with us and attend consultations with your child’s teacher in order for you to fully understand the school. Our school has an Open Door Policy and we will deal with any concerns as quickly as possible so as to cause minimal disruption to your child’s education.
At St Nicholas, we are proud of our friendly and family atmosphere where we get to know each child whilst fostering a sense of community responsibility.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
Thank you for visiting!
Mrs S Willis
Acting Executive Headteacher
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.
The Rector, Revd. Richard Jordan is a frequent visitor to the school and has worked with the children on a number of different projects.
