Our Values

St. Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy is committed to the safeguarding of all our pupils.

St Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy believes that all pupils, their families and the wider community should be given every opportunity to fulfil their potential through education. We recognise that everyone is unique. By respecting and encouraging the individual we aim to produce confident, independent thinkers and learners able to respond positively to an ever changing world.

Christian values underpin all aspects of the academy.

St Nicholas CE Primary Academy is a ‘values based community’, committed to the education of the whole child. The Values have been adopted by all of the stakeholders and are based on Christian principles aimed at developing children to become both successful learners and valued members of society. Our values are:

At St Nicholas we believe everyone needs values to guide them through life. Without values we have no anchor, nothing on which to base our decisions and priorities and we recognise the huge role parents have to play in helping us embed our values.

We teach our values through everything we do and through our daily Acts of Worship and PSHE curriculum. Values displays are prominent within the school environment in the belief that a good education gives us the chance to live longer, enjoy success, create life chances, provide for a family and much more. We are confident every parent and carer wants these for their children. Our values are not just for show; they are at the very heart of everyone and everything at St Nicholas CE Primary Academy.
