Rugby Team take home fair play trophy from cluster tournament

Added on by Kate Sims.

A super well done to the Neston Tag Rugby team (Chloe, Leo, Theo, Harriet, Max, Charlotte, Reegan, Molly, Olivia and Izzy) who played in 5 fast-paced matches at a cluster festival last week! Our top try scorer was Leo with 11 tries across all five matches! His co-captain Chloe also did us proud, leading the warm up session, supporting the less-experienced players and by being a very safe pair of hands to pass to. Some of our new-to-rugby players had impressive pace and got us many tags. The entire team worked brilliantly together and won their first two matches by 2 or 3 tries. Both of the matches that they lost was only by 1 try each - very close, exciting contests!

Neston Hockey Team Compete in Play offs for the County event

Added on by Kate Sims.

It wasn’t our day but the team did really well to have made it to this level having won our cluster tournament. They competed in 5 gruelling matches at Devizes School and gained a lot of experience in the process. Many thanks to Mrs New, mum of one of our captains, for accompanying the team to the event. A big shout out also to Mrs Van Dongen, for providing the GK kit and coaching advice, and to Mrs Frost, for dropping everything to help transport members of the team. You can see why our Neston children are so helpful and supportive with these kinds of examples!

All of the team supported each other to do their very best and there were many great performances.

World Book Day - Thursday 7th March

Dear Parents and Carers

We shall be celebrating World Book day on Thursday 7th March when children are invited to "dress a potato as their favourite character"!!

We have received some feedback regarding our upcoming World Book Day.

Our initial thoughts were based on past parental feedback regarding the challenges some families face on days like these. The high cost of costumes, or the time required to make them can mean that the experience is not accessible to everyone. Also children with other additional needs can find the whole experience of dressing up quite confusing and uncomfortable.

With this is mind, options are as follows;

1. Come as you are

2. Dress up as your favourite book character

3. Dress a potato as your favourite book character - please click here for further information and inspiration!

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
