Why Nacton Primary?

Including all our children

We provide opportunities for all our children to play an active role in the life of our school, asking their views on important decisions through our School Council, which includes children from each class. The children are encouraged to take part in charity fund-raising events, concerts and our annual whole school dramatic production.

All our children enjoy learning French within the curriculum, have regular swimming lessons from Year Three, learn to play a brass instrument in Years Five and Six, and enjoy a wide range of educational visits that enrich their learning, including a residential visit.

Extra-curricular opportunities

After school sports clubs are organised for netball, football and athletics; children take part in competitive fixtures, both locally and nationally. Other after-school activities include, drama, art and cookery clubs, alongside lunchtime recorder groups, book club meetings, gardening, ICT short tennis.

Commitment to the Arts

The school was recognised in 2007 and again in 2010 with the award of Artsmark Gold by Arts Council England. This top national award recognises the school’s commitment to giving all our children a wide range of arts experiences in lessons, out-of-hours activities, visits, and partnerships with arts practitioners and organisations.

Involving our parents and carers

We welcome your participation in the life of our school, both at home, where you can contribute to your child’s learning in literacy and mathematics, and in school if you would like to be involved with the activities taking place.
