About Us

St. Nicholas is a successful primary school in the idyllic village of Child Okeford. The school’s catchment area covers a large area, including Child Okeford, Hanford, Hammoon and Manston. Children from beyond the parish boundaries are also eligible to join the school if there is sufficient space in the year group. We  are a happy, caring and supportive school, committed to providing high quality education within the context of Christian beliefs and practice.

Our aim is to provide learning opportunities that meet the needs of your child and to encourage them to achieve their personal best. While providing a stimulating and challenging ethos for learning we expect high standards of personal behaviour.

We promote respect, tolerance and understanding for one another and appreciate and value our differences. Children are encouraged to care for one another, the school environment and the world in which they live.
