I am delighted to welcome you to Naburn Church of England Primary School’s website. We are a small school, set in the beautiful rural village of Naburn just outside the city of York.

I hope this brief glimpse of our school, via our website, will give you an insight into the life of our school, our ethos and our vision for all our children. I also hope that it helps you to see  what makes our school so special. I know that we have so much to be proud of.

As a church school our faith is vitally important and we follow the Christian Values in all we do: the way that we treat each other, the way that we look for opportunities to help those in need and in the example we demonstrate to those we meet. We aim to develop confidence and independence, recognising that each and everyone has a part to play as a responsible member of not only our learning environment but in our local community and wider society. Our  Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) Report in May 2017 stated that:

‘Pupils’ personal development is carefully nurtured through a vibrant, distinctive curriculum which does not narrowly focus on academic achievement measures and through the outstanding commitment of staff towards the school’s Christian ethos.’

We were awarded Outstanding in this inspection, an achievement we are all very proud of.

At Naburn, we believe that all children thrive in an environment in which they are happy, having fun, challenged and secure.

Secure in the knowledge that they are safe and cared for; challenged to achieve their best through a fun, enriched and engaging curriculum and happy in the knowledge they are appreciated for their individuality and their achievements both in and outside of school.

Our SIAMS Report also stated:

‘Naburn Church of England Primary is a small, tightly-knit community where adults and children work joyfully together inspired by the Christian values of compassion, trust and perseverance’.

It is difficult to sum up in a short introduction everything that makes Naburn CE Primary School such a special place, of which we are all proud to be a part. Please do not hesitate to contact us at school for any further information or to arrange a visit so that you can observe our school in ‘real life’. We truly are a Small School with Big Ideas!
