Nateby Primary School


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

Easter 2021

The children had an ‘eggstatic time’ making Easter Bonnets and ‘Egg in a Box’ scenes for our competitions. They certainly made us ‘crack’ a smile.

Despite the Lockdown Nateby pupils are determind to do their bit to improve the local area. We are focusing on litter picking at the moment. All the children felt it was very important to try to clean up the environment as they had seen so much litter on the streets and in the surrounding countryside. We will be doing more litter picking in the next few weeks and hope to add many more photos of all the binbags full of litter we have collected.


Over the Lockdown period we worked with local schools to create our mural thanking keyworkers for their hardwork. Many of the children that created the mural are in fact children of keyworkers so they knew exactly what their parents were going through. Take a look at their work- it is now hanging in Garstang town center.


We now have a school uniform online shop. Please use the tab above to go to school office or follow this link:

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?

Nateby Primary School is at the centre of the Nateby community. The Team at Nateby aims to provide a full and rich curriculum which excites and motivates all pupils. Each child is seen as an individual. We believe that it is the duty of the school to ensure that each individual’s needs are met both educationally and personally; that each individual should be supported in achieving their full potential and develop in to confident, responsible members of our society; that all pupils aspire to and are able to succeed in the modern, multi-cultural country they live in.

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.
