Message from Headteacher

A Message from our Headteacher, Mrs Alison Shearer

A very warm welcome to St Nicholas Church of England VC Primary School.
We trust both you and your child will enjoy finding out more about us and our teaching and learning environment.

Our mission statement:


We create the space for children to develop their academic, spiritual, moral, social, cultural and physical gifts and talents whilst building on a firm foundation of Christian beliefs and values.

All of our work, with both children and adults here, is deeply rooted in the belief that every person is a precious individual who, with the correct support, can achieve great things. To us, every child and adult plays a valuable part in our daily school life, our local community and beyond on a more global scale.
Our highly committed, skilled staff work hard to ensure they create the perfect space for your child to achieve their very best in all learning experiences. We have a strongly driven desire to see your child blossom during his/her time with us here at St Nicholas.
Each half term, we focus on a new personal key skill to ensure we become super learners with a genuine love for success:

  1. Autumn A – Supporting and understanding others.
  2. Autumn B – Pushing ourselves and not giving up.
  3. Spring A – Attempting new things.
  4. Spring B – Concentrating and working hard.
  5. Summer A – Enjoying using our imagination and improving.
  6. Summer B – Recapping on all of the above with increased confidence and self belief.

We are extremely proud of our supportive, family atmosphere here. For you to experience this first hand, please do come in to speak to me, my staff and our children. We guarantee both you and your child will enjoy your visit.
Looking forward to meeting with you to show you around...
Mrs Alison Shearer
