At St. Nicholas our primary goal is to provide a safe and secure environment in which our pupils - your children - can thrive. Above all else we recognise that children cannot achieve their academic potential unless their fundamental need to feel safe, comfortable and happy is met. Safeguarding children is everyone's responsibility. Our staff members are all trained to recognise any issues that might affect our pupils' development, and we also encourage parents to bring to our immediate attention any concerns. We ask you to read carefully our St-Nicholas-Safeguarding-Policy-Autumn 2017.
