Values and vision
Nishkam Primary School prides itself on having a Sikh ethos but being inclusive to all faiths. It aims to build success on a strong partnership between passionate staff, committed learners and dedicated parents. The school believes that its faith-inspired values define the character of its education and should be intrinsic to a positive outlook for students.
Teachers aim to promote faith-inspired humility and a selfless approach to life. The school says its aspirations for academic excellence are underpinned, in particular, by the practice of the values of humility, service, compassion, self-discipline, forgiveness, love and creativity.
“Children get off to an excellent start in the extremely effective Reception classes, and are prepared exceptionally well for their move into Year 1. All groups of pupils at all ages make rapid progress. They achieve high standards in relation to their different starting points. Class teachers and associate teachers (extra adult support in class) aim high and always want pupils to do their very best. They provide teaching of excellent quality, and set demanding work that stimulates pupils and moves them on quickly in their learning."
