Nateby Primary School.

A quiet village school......?

We don't think so!



Our Class 2 Harvest production 'The Little Black Cloud' was fantastic. The children really helped us to think about how lucky we are to have the weather we need to grow crops. It was a wonderful play followed by their dance from PE which followed the term's theme of The Stone Age 'Sticks and Stones'.



We had a super time at Tower Wood again. Our younger pupils enjoyed their first school residential and started to learn the basics of kayaking, climbing and sailing; our older children improved on what they already knew culminating in year 6 kayaking four and a half miles down Lake Windermere. Now we're back-we can't wait to go again!



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.



"This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment."

For further information about safeguarding please refer to the policies section (menu left)



We aim to ensure all Nateby Pupils are confident learners and global citizens.

We will achieve this by:

Instilling a life-long love of learning and a passion for knowledge.

Nurturing our pupils so that they are proud and confident.

Celebrating success so that children feel valued.

Creating a positive environment where children flourish and are safe and happy.

Developing resilient, well balanced, healthy pupils who are caring considerate citizens.

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 2015-2016


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

This academic year our themes are: 'Sticks and Stones'; 'Detectives' and 'Water Water Everywhere'.


Sign To Sing


For over three years now we have been learning sign language with the help of one of our fantastic teaching assistants- 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.
