Important:  Latest Covid-19 news

Welcome to Northfield St Nicholas

We are a very hard working and friendly team who absolutely want the very best educational experience for the children in our care. We have effective teachers who are committed to ensuring and providing high quality learning experiences which enable the children to be reflective learners. Every day, the highest quality feedback from staff ensures our children can develop, practice and apply their skills as well as being challenged to move on and make new learning progress as soon as they are ready to do so.

We have the very highest aspirations for the children in our learning community and set high standards and expectations to challenge our children to be the best learners they can possibly be. We are unwavering in setting high expectations for the conduct of pupils and staff and are uncompromising in our ambition to improve the outcomes for all pupils at our school.

We have a broad and balanced curriculum which inspires our pupils to learn, where safeguarding is effective and pupils are listened to and feel safe. “To keep you safe and to help you learn” is our mantra.

Our school motto – Working together to achieve excellence for all – captures what we hope to facilitate for all our stakeholders, from pupils and their families to our staff and other learning partners in the wider community.

East Point Academy have kindly provided this information for you...

" Dear Families of prospective EPA applicants for 2021,

We regret that this year’s Open evening at East Point Academy will not go ahead owing to social distancing regulations at this time.

We would very much like to introduce you to our academy and are therefore in the process of producing a short film to share with you which will cover the main points usually explained during our information session during the Open evening.

Our video will include information on our new build, transition programme, academic outcomes as well as our ethos and expectations. This will be made available via your Primary school website as well as our own. We will also have updates and valuable information posted on our website over the coming weeks and months.

For those families that are offered a place with us, an email and letter will be sent to you in March 2021 from the admissions office, shortly followed by a welcome pack from EPA and information on your next steps.

We would seek to remind you that applications via the admissions office are open and the deadline for these is October 31st. At this time we would stress that late applications will not automatically be successful from families within our catchment area or with siblings who already attend EPA.

We look forward to welcoming you to East Point and trust that your initial enquiries and questions will be addressed in our video and subsequent correspondence.

Kind regards,
Richard Dolding
Principal " ...
