School Description

Pupils like coming to Fred Nicholson School. One pupil’s response typified the views of others, saying, ‘All the staff help you and cheer you up if you are sad.’ Pupils feel safe at the school. They trust the adults who help them. They are comfortable talking to adults if they are worried or upset. Some parents and carers said they had seen big changes for the better in their child since joining the school. Pupils behave well and there is a calm and purposeful atmosphere around the school. Pupils mostly understand what bullying is. They said that it does not happen very often at the school. Staff deal properly with any incidents that do happen. Pupils talked about all the different events that they enjoy at the school. They talked about when birds of prey were brought to the school and when they learned about the planets from experts. Staff want the very best for each pupil. They work together well as a team. Staff treat each pupil with respect from the moment they are individually greeted at the start of each day. Staff carefully consider pupils’ needs and interests when planning lessons and activities.
