Welcome to the St Nicholas’ Chantry CE Primary School's website. Whether you are looking for an introduction to our school, up to date information or just like to see what we are doing we hope these pages will give you what you need.
We are a Church of England Primary School that currently caters for 394 children in the town of Clevedon, North Somerset in the UK. We have recently increased our potential capacity and can now accommodate 420 children.
We pride ourselves on our high standards, caring atmosphere and sense of fun in learning in a Christian setting. We want our children to be confident in developing their skills, knowledge and attitudes. We do this through a creative daily curriculum, out of school activities, special events and learning how to learn as well as what to learn. In this way we believe we give our children a great start and fulfil our vision of:
'Guiding children towards learning for life.'
This website is an excellent example of how we work as a community and celebrate our successes. It contains newsletters, information on how we work, a flavour of our activities and links to other relevant sites. We hope you find it interesting and helpful

At St Nicholas' Chantry CE School we want our children to be curious life-long learners who can work collaboratively and achieve their full potential. Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum, the locally agree Religious Education syllabus and the Personal, Social and Health Education programme called 'Jigsaw'.
We have devised a Curriculum that builds year on year in all its areas so that children can make links with their previous learning and between subjects. This enables us to provide our children with engaging learning experiences, that excites their imagination and challenges them. Creativity is at the heart of our children’s journey of learning. We endeavour to provide a rich and diverse curriculum, linked to the real world, teaching children important key skills, attitudes, and a love of learning which encourages children to think outside the box.
The teaching and learning at our school is of a high standard and is well planned and managed so that every child is supported and challenged. We enable children to take an active part in their own learning. We believe that pupils must understand what and why of their learning, where they are in relation to their learning and it is vital that they can explain what it is that they have achieved.
Our Curriculum is outward looking and embraces our wider community. We engage with parents, industry, local organisations and individuals to bring the real world into our school. We offer our children a global dimension to their learning through our links with schools in Nepal and Uganda. All these links and aspects of our curriculum that we have developed and build on, are designed to enrich our children’s understanding of the world. Our curriculum also takes out in to our local community and enhances our children’s social emotional development, as well as promoting oracy skills and offering children depth and breadth of understanding. We want our children to realise, through our curriculum, that they can impact positively on their world.
As a school we want the richest and diverse curriculum. Children are able to access a wide range of sporting activities, many exciting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) activities and our extensive grounds offer great outdoor learning opportunities. Music also features prominently within our curriculum. We offer two camp activities and our schools trips encompass an array of opportunities.
We believe too we have created a Curriculum that is fully inclusive and designed to nurture a 'growth mind set' and ensures we offer a unique and broad range of experiences. We ensure that we review our provision annually, as we endeavour to provide all our children with skills and knowledge needed to lead fulfilling lives, where they can engage as active local and global citizens.Find out more
