We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in their Number Day on Friday 8 February 2019.

To help raise money for the NSPCC, we are asking pupils to collect sponsorship / donations using the sponsor form which will be e-mailed separately. As well as this, we will also be taking part in Dress up for Digits, and pupils will be invited to wear an item of clothing with a number on it (football shirt, cap, netball shirt or even a onesie!).

Severe Weather Procedures

Added on by School Administrator.

We are writing to remind you of the procedures in the event of snowy weather conditions. 

Please listen to HEART Radio or Wiltshire Radio who will start announcing school closures from 6.45am.  You can also go on the HEART FM website and click on NEWS and then SCHOOL CLOSURES and they give a very comprehensive list of Wiltshire School Closures. 

You could also check the “Our News” page on our school website www.neston.wilts.sch.uk for information.  Please do not rely on social media for an accurate update.

Please be assured that whilst every effort will be made to keep the school open, the safety of students and staff is of paramount importance during extreme weather conditions.  Also, the majority of our teachers live in surrounding towns and may experience difficulties on minor roads. We will ensure you receive information as quickly as possible; you will also receive a text if the school is closed

If you do not receive a text this is due to your mobile telephone numbers not being up-to-date on our school records.

Kind Regards

Pam Evans

Headteacher

Added on by Kate Sims.

Well done to all of our keen footballers who took part in a cluster tournament at Corsham School on 15.11.18! We had a Neston squad of 10 players and four more children who volunteered to play for Lypiatt School because they were short on numbers. Co captains William and James P did a super job of organising their team. Many thanks to Annett Eggleton who accompanied the players to the event!

Neston pupils compete in Prior Park Biathlon at Bath University for the first time

Added on by Kate Sims.

Five of the strongest swimmers and runners in Maple Class were delighted to compete against many other schools in the Bath area on 5.10.18. The new Pentathlon World Champ Jamie Cooke and World Team Silver medal winner Joe Choong were amongst the helpers at the University of Bath, where the event took place. Each of our U10 and U11 athletes had to run 800m on the track and swim 50m in the pool. They weren’t daunted by the strong competition and everyone gave a good performance. Darcey and Billy’s performances qualified them for the British Championships!

Well done to the netball team who played a total of 5 matches against other schools in our cluster on 20.09.18 and 27.09.18. All of the games were very exciting - they won 3, drew one and lost one. Top goal scorer was James though … also scored crucial goals. All of the team tried out different positions and all of them gained in skill and knowledge from the experience. Cerys and Emily were super first time captains.
