Welcome to NATE Primary

A very warm welcome to NATE’s new dedicated Primary web-page. Here you will find the latest news, events and recommended resources for the primary English teaching community.

As NATE’s new Primary Officer, I welcome the opportunity to share with you the enhanced benefits for NATE primary members, sharing good practice through a new Primary IllumiNATE as well as a revised eco-friendly Primary Matters magazine (you can download these below).

The site is in its early stages so we would be very pleased to hear your suggestions for what we should include. I look forward to hearing from you – please keep in touch via our new primary email: primary@nate.org.uk

As a not for profit educational charity, NATE is dependent on membership therefore please support our work by becoming a member and spreading the word!  Join here. More details below:
