Thank you for visiting the Navenby Church of England Primary School website.
The school is at the heart of the small, rural Lincolnshire village of Navenby with around 200 pupils on roll. The school building and environment house a range of appealing facilities including a fantastic outdoor Reception area, drama studio, library, bicycle and scooter store, trim trail, community cairn, outdoor classroom and a stunning field.
Navenby Primary School was judged to be a 'good' school by Ofsted in December 2021 which we are very proud of. It has been a tough two years with the pandemic and its impact but the grade reflects the hard work we have put in to ensure we maintain our consistently high standards and nurturing 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) for our ambitious 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 (November 2017), 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'. 100% of parents who returned the end of year questionnaires (July 2023), report that their children are happy at school, that they are happy overall with the experiences Navenby provides for them. and that Navenby keeps their child safe and the school values them as an individual and encourages them to do their best.
Our pupils are 'Ready to Learn' (school motto) because of the belief and value we place in every single one of them. Visitors are always welcome to see this for themselves and to witness the opportunities for learning and development we provide for our children.
