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.

The EYFS team were really saddened to come to school on Monday morning to see their outdoor area had been vandalised over the weekend. The children were so devastated when they saw the state of their learning area.Fortunately, a neighbour reported the disturbance to the police and the group moved on. Unfortunately, we were not the only school targeted.We would urge you to please be vigilant and if you see any suspicious behaviour to let the school or police know immediately. The police have asked community members to use 999 if they see or suspect anyone is causing or about to cause damage to school property or accessing school grounds when the school is closed.

With half term approaching it would be great if each child had one post on Tapestry for us to share when we come back into school, it can really help with transitions.
