Church School Distinctiveness Statement

At St Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy we aim to be distinctive in our Christian character. Collective Worship is a key part of our academy day, setting the tone for the behaviour and ethos of our academy family. We have strong links with our local Vicar, Reverend Julie, and the parish church, St Nicholas, which we use regularly for R.E lessons and collective worship to mark key dates in the Christian calendar.

St Nicholas Academy is a Church school, which means that the values we live out in the academy arise from our faith in the person and story of Jesus Christ.

We strive to enable each child, to reach their human potential in their learning and thinking across every aspect of academy life. We aim to see them growing into responsible citizens developing a sense of justice, empathy and a wish to serve others. We also seek to develop a child’s sense of individual identity and worth as a beloved child of God within our special academy family and in the world.
