"Where Childhood Matters"

Making memories 

Here at Nafferton Primary School each child is valued for what they bring to the school and community.  A child needs to be allowed to be a child, creating memories for life.  We are committed to developing the whole child.  We offer an education that is rooted in the traditions and values of England with a spirit of tolerance and respect for the individual.  Our children will have the opportunity to be creative, to be physically active and to be academically challenged.  Aspirations and expectations are high for our children to ensure they become active, responsible and caring members of the school and society.



Each term, we have a newwhole school topic which provides many exciting writing opportunities and exposure to high quality books. Children learn through a cross-curricular approach with high quality book focuses. From this, teachers teach a range of genres in imaginative ways which inspire children to write. As well as this, we believe that writing for purpose ensures that writing is meaningful and we encourage children to take part in these exciting opportunities. Some of these include:

  • Writing to the Brazilian Embassy about the effects of deforestation
  • Writing a review about Nafferton Primary School for the Parliamentary Review
  • Partaking in Water Explorers
  • Job applications for positions in school e.g. house captains, play buddies, librarians
  • Writing to authors and creating new characters for books
  • Responding to letters from fairytale characters




We teach spelling through the Rising Stars scheme. This ensures progression throughout the school and that National Curriculum objectives are met. Each week children are given a list of 10 spellings. These spellings are integrated into daily teaching and teachers use a range of practical and written methods for spellings to be learnt.
