Nateby Primary School.

A quiet village school......?

We don't think so!

Egg hatch day finally arrived


After what seemed a very long wait for the children the eggs finally started to hatch. Meet the new members to Class One. How cute! First there was just one, but he was soon joined by some playmates. What an amazing experience for the children to see the chicks hatching from the eggs! The chicks soon became the main attraction of the school.



We were very pleased to be able to accept a defibrillator from The Adam's Appeal. Two members of our community - Mr Coggin and Mr Collinson had raised money for the appeal by cycling around the country and had asked for a defibrillator to be placed here at Nateby School. Members of our community, children and staff were invited to take part in training so that we all know what to do if we are ever called upon.




What do we believe is the purpose of education? What is the purpose of a school? What is it that underpins all that we do in our school?

At Nateby Primary School we believe that every child is unique. That they are entitled to an education which excites, supports and challenges them. That children flourish when they feel safe enough to take risks and to be themselves.

Learning is fun!


We are very proud of our 'outstanding' school. Our staff, volunteers and the community work hard to provide an exciting and relevant curriculum. We feel we are all teaching to our strengths inviting specialists in to school to enhance the curriculum: we offer a weekly specialist music lesson to all junior pupils - they play the clarinet from the age of 7! All junior children have one and half terms of swimming every year (at Garstang YMCA swimming pool) across the whole of the juniors. Read on to discover more about Nateby Primary School.

Curriculum 2013-2014


We match our learning objectives to termly themes in the juniors (the infants join in too). 

This academic year our themes are: 'Castles, Conquerors and Crowns'; 'Mountains, Myths and Monsters' and 'Planet Earth: Status Critical'.

As part of our theme 'Castles, Conquerors and Crowns' we have researched how and why castles were built, built model castles campaigned for our favourite King, built Roman seige weapons in the hall and visited a real castle at Clitheroe. We have put all of our knowledge about castles in to some excellent writing.

Sign To Sing


We have been learning sign language with the help of one of our fantastic teaching assistant- Mrs Ryan. Here we are joining in with a World Record attempt to have the most people signing simultaneously in 2013 and 2014.
