The care of the children at St Nicholas is of paramount importance to us.
Pastoral Care refers to the atmosphere of care that prevails within the school community. It can also be defined as the summation of the school's endeavour to educate within the academic, social and value dimensions of the school and the quality of personal relationships that exist within it.
Pastoral Care cannot be restricted to a particular programme or curriculum and involves all members of the school community. Ultimately Pastoral Care is an expression of the philosophy and vision of the school.
A critical facet of life at our school, is the pastoral care of the students.
The pastoral guidance provided by our staff aims for pupils to be caring, considerate and respectful.
Across all aspects of school life, our staff provide exemplary pastoral support for pupils; consequently, pupils feel recognised as unique individuals, whose cultural heritages are valued and celebrated.
In the EYFS, staff form strong bonds with the children and promote high standards of behaviour and harmonious relationships.
Throughout the school, relationships between pupils and staff, and amongst the pupils themselves, are our focus and form the foundation of both the ethos in the school and the quality of its care.
St Nicholas School provides an after-school care service every day of the working week except Wednesdays. Running from 3:30pm until 5:30pm, parents can elect for their children to attend on a daily basis. Children are supervised by a teacher, provided with a snack, and have an opportunity to make a start on their HW or complete another classroom learning activity. Contact the school administration for further details.
