Nettlesworth Primary School is a place where inclusion, pupil voice and respect are valued.
Our school aims to provide all children with a well planned and balanced education taking full account of National Curriculum Statutory requirements. Within the bounds of this we also provide for individual children’s special needs which may require more challenging work or additional help. We are an Inclusion Quality Mark School, who focuses on the pursuit of outstanding teaching and learning and creating an environment in which every student, including those who do not have disabilities, has the opportunity to flourish.
We are a NACE accredited school (an award in recognition of school-wide high-quality provision for more able learners within a context of challenge for all) and ensure there is a whole school commitment and a clear focus to providing for More Able Gifted and Talented pupils. We provide pupils with a wide range of experiences and opportunities individualised to their personal needs and interests. Parents are closely involved in the education of their child and are consulted about their provision.
As a Rights Respecting Gold School, we place the UNCRC (United Conventions of the Rights of a Child) at the heart of its planning, policies and practice. The school has a Rights Respecting Ethos, where children are empowered to become active citizens and learners.
Nettlesworth Primary School is like a family, where everyone is cared for. We provide a secure and happy environment in which children, as members of the school family, acquire the basic skills needed in order to make progress in all aspects of their life. We work together where all members of the community feel safe, achieve and make a positive contribution to the school and the wider community.
Children are given opportunities to broaden experience, listen and talk about what they explore and investigate, develop skills and practice them.
All year groups cover a 2 year rolling long term curriculum plan which covers the core subjects of Literacy, Numeracy and Science as well as the other foundation areas. Details of these plans can be found in the Our Curriculum section of Quick links on our homepage.
