Visions and Values

Our Vision, Aims & Values

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” John 10:10b

 

Vision Statement

Being part of the St Nicolas family is about enjoying coming to school as we learn through great experiences, inside and outside of the classroom. We have high expectations of each other. We value our staff who help every child engage with every opportunity on offer. At St Nicolas, we are learning excellence as we prepare for the next stage of life and live out our Christian values.

 

Aims

We achieve our vision through:

1. Providing an holistic education with a wide range of academic and extra-curricular opportunities that are accessible for every child;

 

2. Ensuring that the quality of teaching challenges and inspires every child so that each child can be the best they can be and develop their potential;

 

3. Promoting behaviour and relationships throughout the school based on our Christian Values which are embedded throughout our teaching and learning;

 

4. Helping every child enjoy their time at school and supporting each child so that they can grow in independence and confidence, able to make good choices for themselves;

 

5. Building a sense of school family through proactive engagement and strong communication so that we can work in partnership with parents and carers to strengthen our teaching and support of every child;

 

6. Growing our links with the wider Abingdon community and beyond to provide a greater and more diverse range of opportunities inside and out of the classroom with other schools and businesses.

 

Mr Spooner and his staff team have given a lot of thought about how to achieve these aims and make our vision a day to day reality for all pupils. This will be reflected in the annual school development plan which governors monitor throughout the year.
