Welcome to our school website. We’re glad that you’ve chosen to share a part of our school life. On this website, we aim to provide insight into our school & a range of information about how we work. Our school is in the heart of Liverpool city centre, and we welcome children from all over the world into our learning community. Being at the centre of the university campuses, we are the perfect choice for parents who either study or work locally to us.
We hope you find your visit to our website useful and informative. Every member of staff and all of the school’s governors are committed and work very hard to provide the very best opportunities to all pupils in order that we develop the ‘whole child’. Our Mission Statement “Our Catholic school is a diverse, nurturing and dynamic community which is faithful to Jesus, welcoming to all and provides a learning environment where everyone can succeed” reflects this and forms the basis of all our work in the school.
While your children are with us, we offer them a wealth of opportunities to enrich their learning, including regular visitors to the school and trips to local places of interest. We also try to offer opportunities for residential activities. We educate the whole child and will work with you to ensure that your child reaches their full potential. We collaborate with parents & other agencies to ensure that every child receives individualised attention and we closely monitor progress to identify swiftly any barriers to learning, such as Special Educational Needs (SEN), English as an additional language (EAL) or high attainment.
We work in collaboration with our local network of schools through DGT (Dingle, Granby & Toxteth Collaborative) and across the city through the Liverpool Learning Partnership to ensure that all of the staff receive high-quality CPD opportunities to enhance the learning of your child.
Parents are always welcome to come to the school and we are always happy to support families in a wider context than the education of their child. Helen Needham, Pastoral Care Manager, can advise on a range of issues, from learning English to benefits entitlements and secondary school admission.
We want children who come to our school to be happy, and safe and to enjoy their learning. The school provides a rich variety of activities in and out of school hours. Our school has gained both national and local awards; Healthy School Status, Active Mark, Gold Games Mark and Gold Reading Quality Mark. We are all rightly proud of our many achievements and always realise that everyone can always improve in what they do. A learning journey lasts a lifetime!
We hope that this website helps us achieve the aims and values that we hold here at St Nicholas and helps give you an insight into life at our school. Please take a few moments to visit our class blogs to get a taste of life at St Nicholas. There you will see photographs and videos of just some of the wide variety of activities our pupils enjoy and take part in.
Finally, thank you for visiting our website, we would welcome any comments about it, and this may be done by contacting the school.
