Equalities

St Nicholas school is committed to providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for its diverse population of pupils. 

Our school recognises the link between poor educational attainment and reduced employment opportunities and lower earnings later in life, and is committed to promoting and developing equality of opportunity for all its pupils. 

Our school appreciates that there are many groups of children and young people who may be vulnerable to underachievement, including looked-after children, young carers, bereaved children, children from service families and others.
