Our vision for St Nicholas’ Primary is to inspire a community of faith and learning where there is mutual respect, enabling all members of the community to be happy and have the opportunity to reach their full god- given potential.
Our school aims are founded on the shared vision and values of our whole school community. They take account of the needs of the children and reflect the improvement objectives of East Dunbartonshire Council. They give a framework from which priorities in the school improvement plan will be developed.
All members of our school community are valued equally as individuals and excel in different ways, regardless of sex, colour or creed and therefore we aim to:
Provide a happy, nurturing and welcoming environment where everyone is treated with respect.
Provide a rich and varied curricular experience which develops and enhances each child’s potential for learning, enabling them to become creative and independent individuals, nurturing their physical, emotional, academic, spiritual and social development;
Encourage excellence, so all children strive to attain the highest possible levels of achievement in a challenging and motivating environment;
Employ a range of teaching strategies which take cognisance of different learning styles, talents and skills, suited to the individual needs of all children;
Through genuine partnership, develop and promote leadership skills in staff, pupils, and the whole school community in order to provide the highest quality education.
