Navenby Primary School
Headteacher: Craig Elliott
Navenby CE Primary School is at the heart of the small, rural Lincolnshire village of Navenby with approximately 200 pupils on roll.
We are judged to be “an outstanding school” by Ofsted and we strive to maintain these consistently high standards and to nurture everyone’s talents and strengths so that every child can achieve success. Our strong supportive team works cohesively to ensure each child feels safe, valued, cared for and respected so that they develop an excitement and enthusiasm for learning which they can take with them through their lifetime.
We plan many exciting cross-curricular themed activities (many initiated by the children) based on a question-focused ‘Learning Challenge’ Curriculum. Contexts for learning are meaningful, modern, motivating and challenging so that our children take great pride in the learning they display. Our pupils have a positive attitude; they are confident, well-mannered and well-behaved and they genuinely care about each other, further fostering our Christian values and ethos which are evident for all to see when speaking to the children or walking around the site.
On our most recent ‘outstanding’ church school inspection the inspector noted that ‘the positive Christian ethos, based on secure values, underpins an inclusive, caring and spiritually rich environment where all members of the school community are valued’ and ‘the outstanding behaviour of all the pupils together with a high degree of respect and politeness is engendered towards others’.
Our pupils are ‘Ready to Learn’ because of the belief and value we place in every single one of our children. We give the children the skills so that they learn to choose and also choose to learn.
