Nateby Primary School.

A quiet village school......?

We don't think so!



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.

Humblescough Farm


Class One had their second trip to Humblescough Farm this week and the weather could not have been more perfect! We had a fabulous day looking for signs of spring, going on a minibeast hunt and observing the new born lambs. Mr Seddon was there too, providing all the fun and games in the wood and of course toasting marshmallows on the campfire whilst listening to his hilarious stories!



This week we have been learning about the aircraft used in World War II such as V2 rockets, Doodlebugs, Spitfires and Lancaster Bombers. This will not only help us with our history but also with our writing when we try to imagine what it must have been like to live through a war. Our models are based on a scale of 1/4 so imagine seeing the real thing flying above your head!




 We will endeavour to keep school open however if school does have to close we will announce this through BBC Radio Lancashire ((95.5, 103.9 and 104.5 FMV) and on our school website (here!) not via the office.

If school is open please send your child with wellies or other suitable outdoor wear as we will go out and play no matter what the weather! A change of trousers etc for them to play out in would also be advisable.

We will only close school if it is dangerous for parents, staff or pupils to travel or if there is a failure to our utilities. If school is open but very icy please enter school via the front gate as it will be the only gritted entrance.

Take care!

Mrs Vardey




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 - this year the whole of the juniors will be learning to play the keyboard. 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 2014-2015


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

This academic year our themes are: 'Wheels, Weapons and Warfare'; 'Inventions' and 'Where we live'.


Sign To Sing


For over three years now 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, 2014 and 2015. At the front of the hall you will see members of our sign language club- look at all the videos and you'll see how much they've learnt over the years! More signing (of Frozen) on our 'Community' pages for Christmas 2014.
