Progression Pathway


The provision of life experiences for our children is very important at Nantwich Primary Academy. Through various opportunities we enhance the delivery of our curriculum and the lives of our children by inspiring them and building their curiosity to ultimately have a positive affect on their outlook on life.


However, to specifically impact upon the life chances of our pupils, we aim to reduce the social inequalities in our society by developing the knowledge, tastes and attitudes of our children. We aim to ensure that they develop high cultural capital that will be valued by further education and future employers.
