Latest News

School Open as normal Monday 5th March

We look forwad to seeing everyone back at school tomorrow as the weather returns to normal.

School closure Friday 2nd March

Following the cancellation of school transport we have made the decison to close the school on Friday.

We regret the inconvenience this causes, however the icy conditions on site are treacherous and there is the prospect of more snow around home time on Friday. The position of the school makes it very difficult for large numbers of parents to drop off and pick up on site so feel this is the safest option. 

The weather is changing over the weekend so we look forward to everyone being back at school then. We will also rearrange the World Book Day event that was planned for tomorrow to take place on Friday 9th March.


Happy Holidays

We would like to wish you all a happy and restful family break over the Christmas Holidays. Our first day back in 2018 will be Thursday 4th January.

Snow Days

With the possibility of snow over the winter, please look out for school texts which will tell you if the school is closed. There will also be separate texts from transport to let you know if buses are running.

St Nicholas is a Croydon School of the Year!

We were delighted to be awarded the Croydon Special School of the Year award at the Croydon Council Award Ceremony held at the Hilton Hotel. This is recognition of the hard work carried out by staff, the support of parents and the recognition by Ofsted that St Nicholas remains a Good school with many outstanding features.

Staff Changes

Michelle the Ladybird class teacher has left for her maternity leave this week. We wish her all the best for her new arrival, and look forward to seeing her back after all the excitement. We are delighted to that Polly Small has returned to St Nicholas to take over as class teacher. Polly worked at St Nicholas as a reception class teacher until a few years ago, so knows us well
