Curriculum

Neston Primary School offers rich and memorable learning experiences that motivate and inspire our children to become independent and confident learners.

We constantly strive to achieve excellence in all aspects of school life and reach standards of which our children are rightly proud. We follow the national curriculum across all subjects.

In maths there is a focus on fluency, reasoning and problem solving, and children enjoy using 'Rock Star Maths' and 'Numbots'.

In writing, we provide phonics teaching that is rigorous, structured and enjoyable. At our school, we use 'Pathways to Write' from The Literacy Company to build pupils’ writing skills.

At Neston Primary School, our approach to reading is based on developing reading skills through spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG) activities and independent reading.

Our science curriculum allows children to gain a solid grounding in scientific knowledge, developing their skills as science investigators. RE is a valued area of the curriculum and is taught in a cross curricular style.

Overall, our curriculum  provides exciting learning opportunities to prepare happy, confident children for the future.

For the past 9 years, through 2 children, I have always felt NPS goes the extra mile to support it's students in all areas of the curriculum. The staff are fantastic, hard-working and very approachable. It is a great school and I am glad we chose it all those years ago.

This school has always been a positive influence on my children (2 of which didn't want to leave!) I have recommended this school to several people in the past and will continue to do so in the future. High praise for all the teachers and assistants who make the school what it is!

Great team of staff at NPS. Ladies at reception are so helpful. Newsletter and Facebook page are very informative and helpful. Breakfast club - excellent - my child raves about it. Love the Friday celebration assembly. The sense of pride and encouragement felt is overwhelming - a wonderful celebration of the children.
