About us

We hope that you will find this website useful and easy to use.  We are keen to share with you the wide range of ways in which we engage our pupils in education, both through learning in the classroom and a variety of other opportunities. 

We believe in encouraging our pupils to be part of the decision making and direction of the school and celebrating their contributions through their involvement in discussion groups, the School Council and other structured forums.  Please take a look at our Pupil Voice under School Info / Our School Community to get a view of this.

Please take a look at the Video below produced and edited by some of our pupils with BBC Voices.  We hope you enjoy this view of our School.  

We believe in working closely with parents and carers and other professionals as it is through this joint working that we can enable our pupils to be most successful. Please take a look at Useful Information for Parents, Carers and Pupils under School Info/ Our School Community where we post information about events and forums outside of school and other helpful information and contacts.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we look to all staff and volunteers to do the same.  We highly value our staff and volunteers. If you would like to be part of this professional,caring and committed team please go to School Info under which you will find Volunteering.

The Translate button at the top right of the site is easy to use, just simply press on the arrow for a drop down menu of all the languages that can be applied so that our website can be easily accessed where English is an additional language. 

There is a link at the top of the page to our Facebook Group.  This is a Group set up in order to keep Parents and Carers informed about things happening at Fred Nicholson School.
