Congratulations to St. Nicholas CE Middle School
So pleased we are now able to share the news of St. Nicholas' recent Ofsted success.
Inspectors recognised the all the hard work of governors, senior leaders, staff, pupils and parents over the last year.
St Nicholas’ Church of England Middle School is an improving school. It is welcoming and inclusive. It is a happy school, where people get on. Pupils show tolerance and understanding of people’s differences. Pupils are safe and well cared for. Incidents of bullying are very rare, but pupils say that if it does occur, teachers deal with it quickly.
Senior leaders have worked hard to improve the quality of education that the pupils receive. Staff now expect pupils to achieve well and pupils are rising to these expectations. Teaching has improved and pupils remember, and build on, what they are taught. Subject leaders have started to develop their subjects. There is still more to do to ensure that pupils experience well-planned and sequenced learning in all subjects.
Pupils’ behaviour allows learning to happen. Across the school, there is a consistent approach to managing behaviour. Pupils recognise this. A pupil’s comment summed up the views of many when they said, ‘We don’t get away with things anymore, which is good. It means we can learn.
