I am delighted to welcome you to Northern Saints Church of England (Voluntary Aided) Primary School.
Schools are all about putting children first and at Northern Saints we aim to provide the very best opportunities to ensure that our pupils love learning and are successful in all that they do.
Our school offers a safe, caring and stimulating environment. We have high expectations for staff and pupils alike and through quality teaching, individually tailored support and encouragement, we aim to ensure that all pupils make great progress and attain higher than average results by the time they leave us..
We achieve this within the context of Christian belief and practice and ensure that we preserve and develop the Christian character of the school in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Diocese and our Parish churches. We are rooted in our community providing education for pupils of the Christian Faith, all faiths or none. We do not select children on faith or academic achievement. We use the Local Authority admissions policy ensuring those living closest get into our school. Our latest National Society Statutory Inspection can be found by clicking on this link.

OUR ETHOS AND VALUES
We say that we are “Building on firm foundations”. The six foundations describe the ethos of our school and are the bedrock to ensure that we stay focused on what matters. This Christian ethos is based upon Christian Values taught by Jesus and described in the bible. Underpinning all of our work these values are:
Faith, Hope, Love, Courage, Trust, Forgiveness, Peace, Truth, Compassion, Respect, Service, Responsibility, Kindness, Honesty and Integrity.
OUR CURRICULUM AND PUPIL PROGRESS
The best way to find out about our learning is to view our TWITTER account. Follow us @nsprimary At Northern Saints we have a particular emphasis on learning from first-hand experience, learning outdoors and developing personal confidence through an extended and enhanced curriculum. Our curriculum page gives you information on the National Curriculum, what you should expect your child to achieve each year and our phonics / reading teaching programme.
Our SEN Information Report NSP 2018 and our SEN and Disability Policy give clear indications of what we offer and how we fulfil statutory requirements. Our Disability-Equality-Scheme and Accessibility Plan demonstrates our commitment to ensuring that disabled staff, visitors and pupils are increasingly supported.
OUR PLANS FOR THE FUTURE
We are always seeking to improve our work and the Strategic Action Plan gives brief information about what we will focus on over the next 3 years. This year we will focus on developing consistency in assessment, ensuring outstanding teaching in Early Years and Key Stage 1 and giving children more first-hand experiences so that they become resilient learners. The school is oversubscribed and we will expand to 3 form entry by 2017/18 so we are also updating Year 3 and Year 4 classrooms this year as well as building a new admin block.
