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.  Click here to view a video of our school.

In Year 1 this half-term we have been learning about sculpture in our art unit. We have been aspiring to be artists like Yayoi Kusama by exploring her art work. This week we were learning to make purposeful marks in clay. We learnt how to shape it, roll it out and used a variety of tools to make the marks we had planned out in our designs, particularly polka dots just like Yayoi Kusama! This was a perfect learning opportunity to link in with the sensory aspect of our ASUPERHERO curriculum.

In keeping with our ASUPERHERO promises, Early Years had a visit from a Harley Davidson this morning. They got to ask lots of great questions, look closely at the bike and try on a helmet. We were even fortunate enough to watch the bike as it rode around the school field! One of the children commented, “when the bike moved it made my tummy rumble!” Thank you Mr Swan for giving up your time. It was amazing!

As part of our Mental Health Awareness Week, Lower Key Stage Two took part in a variety of activities to encourage wellbeing. With the National Literacy Trust, lead by Ant and Dec, we took part in #Take10ToRead followed by a creative activity to explore our favourite things. Finally, we all completed a Thrive activity. In year 3 we took part in team building games and in Year 4 we worked on relaxation through art, using water colours to create a calming image. We hope this engaged the children by creating opportunities for them to explore self care and positive mental health strategies.#MentalHealthAwarenessWeek2022
