Welcome to St Nicholas Primary School – a large school with a big heart and a love of learning.
Here at St Nicholas' Primary School, we believe that Values based Education is at the heart of all learning, and as a result, we have embarked on a journey to become a Values based Education School.
The chosen values for our school are, in alphabetical order:
Courage, Independence, Respect, Responsibility, Trust and Unity
St Nicholas’ Primary School is a good school. It provides outstanding care and, by the
time they leave, pupils have made outstanding headway in their personal development.
Pupils get off to a good start in the Nursery class and pupils’ overall achievement
throughout the school is good. The school’s leadership has a passionate vocation to
ensure that every child matters.
St. Nicholas’ Primary School is a community school which admits children between the
ages of 3 and 11 years of age. It is not affiliated to any religious denomination. We
currently have 439 pupils on roll. St Nicholas’ is a multi cultural city school with 29%
of the roll on the SEN register. We pride ourselves on our inclusive ethos to enable all
children to succeed.
We are a host school to the Communication Interaction Resource Base that has at
present 14 children on roll. These children are included into the life of St Nicholas’
School in many ways.
Our classes are organised into 15 single year group classes with two classes for each
year group. We have a high level of teaching support in every classroom, helping to
ensure that every child reaches his or her full potential. We have 38 well trained
teaching assistants who provide excellent support for the teachers.
We provide an excellent learning environment which includes 15 wonderful classrooms,
