Here at St Nicholas Primary School we offer a rich and engaging school experience for all of the children which is underpinned by our belief in ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10).
We recognise that each child is unique with their own natural curiosity for learning. Therefore we strive to achieve a curriculum which is creative and ambitious that excites and challenges each and every child in our school whilst preparing them with the knowledge and skills needed for the next stage in their education and as future members of our local and global community. We highly value our partnerships with families, the church, and the local community to support our culture of equality and aspiration.

This year we have introduced a new curriculum to our school. The Cornerstones Curriculum is based on inspirational learning activities that allows children to learn in a way that motivates and interests them. Links are made between subjects with parts of the Maths and English requirements taught as discreet subjects.
All projects are coherently planned with a progressive development and understanding of key knowledge, skills and concepts, which are revisited within and across the year groups.
Every year group will experience 6 projects in a year. Each term we update our website with information about the upcoming project and learning that your child will be undertaking. We also provide information and resources for you to explore with your child at home.
Each of the exciting projects will have a memorable experience, with opportunities for the children to develop their knowledge and skills, exploration of how they can use and apply the knowledge and skills they have been taught as well as an opportunity to express what they have learnt to you and other audiences. This process forms the four-cornerstone philosophy of Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express.
