Welcome to St Nicholas C.E. Infants' School & FSU. Here at St Nicholas we aim to provide the highest quality education to ensure the best outcomes for every individual child. I passionately believe that happy children make successful learners. Our Christian ethos underpins our work, helping to nurture your child on their journey through school.
This community school, with approximately 160 children, has been at the heart of Wallingford life for the last fifty years. We pride ourselves on our caring ethos and dedicated staff who ensure that the children in our care receive the very best start to their education, enabling them to become the best they can be.
The school is situated in grounds of approximately one acre. These are semi-wooded with a large copse, a grassy area and a pond. This diverse area enables the children to enjoy and learn in the outdoors as well as in the classroom.
We admit children into morning nursery in the term after their 3rd birthday, and then into one of the two Reception classes in the academic year in which they turn 5 years old. The Early Years classes are large, bright and colourful and are surrounded by a variety of outdoor experiences – a sandpit, a slide and climbing frames. The children can ride bicycles, dig holes and develop their imaginative play alongside learning the basics of reading, writing and mathematics.
Play based and more formal activities continue as the children move into Year One and then into Year Two. Our interesting and creative curriculum is based upon themes which are developed alongside the children’s interests. The children are readily motivated to learn and staff take great care to ensure all children are given every opportunity to thrive.
If you have any questions or would like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to make contact via the school office. You will be made most welcome.
