Key information:

PLEASE NAME EVERYTHING! If items are misplaced they are much easier to return if they are clearly named. This includes water bottles, lunch boxes, shoes and ALL uniform.

We have PE on a Tuesday. Please ensure that the children come to school in their PE kit (red polo t shirt, black shorts and velcro trainers or plimsolls) on this day.


At Northfield St Nicholas we love to read!

Every child will take home a school reading book that is linked to their reading assessment. These booked are changed regularly.

Remember to read at least 3 times a week at home and record this in your school reading log to show your class teacher.

Every week children have the opportunity to visit our school’s ‘Lost Library’

During their weekly library sessions children can change their existing library books. These are taken home for them to enjoy in their home setting!

Remember to bring your library book to school on your library day so you can change it!
