Welcome to Nishkam Primary School Birmingham, we are a two form entry school situated in the Handsworth area of Birmingham. Our school is an integral part of the community we serve. The staff at Nishkam Primary have high expectations of the children and aspire to educate our pupils through our values led ethos. Our efforts are underpinned by the drive to see every child succeed. These aspirations are noted by pupils who arrive to school with high expectations and a desire to success across all areas of life.
The primary purpose of the school is the drive for academic excellence. This is exceptionally important in our aspirations for pupils to exceed national standards. This academic success is based on meeting the holistic needs of children.’ We believe an outstanding education and a sense of moral purpose based on core values, are the greatest gifts that we can give our children in preparation to be future leaders, responsible citizens and lifelong learners.
The school offers the full range of National Curriculum, linked to a termly topic for each class to ensure learning is exciting and engaging for all. This is further enriched through faith and language studies. A wide range of extra-curricular experiences, both during and after school enable us to nurture the interests and talents of our pupils.
The philosophy of education at Nishkam School is to provide rich and meaningful experiences through a teaching and learning based on enquiry, creative and critical thinking, reasoning, self-awareness and empathy. We embrace the rich resource of the community to provide active and vibrant learning opportunities and develop in children, aspirations, skills, attitudes and dispositions for the 21st century.
Our faith-inspired values define the character of education. Worshipping collectively is an important feature of the School. The Sikh Dharam (Faith or Religion) is emphatic in respecting all faiths and our unique multi-faith ethos reflect this by nurturing children of any faith.
We welcome parents as equal partners in their child’s education and feel this is crucial to our success.
