Nateby Primary School


Welcome to Nateby Primary School…. a quiet village school?…… We don’t think so!


The Nateby Ethos

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

Our Aims:

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.

We will make every effort to keep school open during our statutory hours of 8.55am and 3.15pm even in bad weather. If the playground is too icy we will grit an alternative route around school and children will go straight in.

We apologise if this is sometimes inconvenient for parents and families but decisions will be made with regard to the needs of our pupils and staff. We do not close early at the end of term and we start all after school clubs on the very first day of every term. We may need to cancel clubs if staff cannot attend and we are unable to cover their role or if weather conditions become a Health & Safety concern. We will endeavour to give timely notice in these circumstances.
