Coronavirus - Updated Parent Guidance

Updated guidance for parents and carers

We have updated our guidance for parents and carers on what they need to know about early years providers, schools and colleges during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. This update provides information on school admission appeals, entry tests for selective schools, and exams and assessments in the autumn term.

We have also provided further information on the use of face coverings in schools and links to online resources that are available to help parents, carers and children with their mental health and wellbeing.

Welcome to St Nicholas C of E Primary School.

St Nicholas C of E Primary school is a co-educational, Church of England, Voluntary Controlled School with 408 children on roll. Through our Christian ethos, we promote friendship and consideration for others in order to create a friendly, caring culture where everyone is valued and accepted.

Our curriculum is designed to motivate and inspire our children to learn, develop lively enquiring minds and instill a lifelong love of learning.

All the staff are dedicated to provide our children with the very best education and life experience possible. There is a range of expertise and talents that we have throughout the staff which greatly benefit the children as they move through the school. Together, we work hard to achieve success and we are committed to the development of every child in partnership with parents, carers and the community.

This website has been designed with the intention of providing the school’s community and prospective parents and children with accurate and up to date information. We welcome visitors to our school at all times and I would encourage all parents thinking about sending their child to St Nicholas C of E Primary to book an appointment to take a tour of the school and see the staff and children in action.

Red Nose Day 19th March

The School was overtaken by Superheroes on Red Nose Day! To raise money for Comic Relief pupils and staff paid to come in as Superheroes and also pupils came in as staff and staff came in as pupils. A great day all round and all for such an amazing cause.

last week at St Nicholas, all of the pupils were celebrating the Queen’s birthday by dressing up in red, white and blue whilst enjoying fun activities for everyone to join in with!

Reception children have been busy learning a song and creating crowns, bunting, a red carpet and a throne! We were lucky enough to have their song sung to us. The Queen even cared to visit, much to the excitement of everyone!

Year 1 have also been busy making biscuits and crowns as well as writing recipes and making a birthday cake for the Queen.

Year 2 have been just as busy and have made invitations, recipes and have researched facts about the Queen.

Now moving to Key Stage 2, Years 3 and 4 have been making bunting, flags, decorating the field, learning the national anthem, enjoying arts and craft and making cakes.

Year 5 and 6 created place mats to eat their cakes and biscuits off and took part in activities throughout the afternoon.

Everyone enjoyed a tea party to celebrate the Queen’s party!
