Dear Parents and Carers
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 the SNOW TAB 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.

Our inspection was a full and thorough inspection and we are very proud and delighted that our school remains "Good".
During the inspection, inspectors noted that there was a lovely atmosphere to the school where "staff look after the pupils very well and keep them safe". The team also reported that "the quality of teaching is good. Teachers plan interesting lessons across a wide and balanced curriculum".
The inspectors discussed the performance data that is published by the school and also the day to day data tracking system. We discussed how data fluctuates depending on the academic and emotional needs of specific cohorts. The inspectors recognised the steps the school had taken to ensure rapid and accelerated progress of each cohort and how it had addressed specific needs of particular groups of children.
Our accurate school self –evaluation based on rigorous data analysis identified the need to accelerate the progress of the higher achieving learners so we are clearly on the right track. Our Maths – No Problem work is already helping to achieve this and the inspectors recognised that it needs some time to embed. The inspectors commented on the strength of the leadership team because the areas for further development have already been identified and implemented.
We want to thank the parents and staff who gave such overwhelming positive feedback on all aspects of the school both through Parent View and directly to the inspectors. The children were amazing - speaking to inspectors with real passion about our school and all that it stands for. I would also like to thank the Governors for their time and commitment to the school - their dedication and hard work has enabled the school to continue to be "Good".
I am very privileged and lucky to work with such a dedicated and strong team who work tirelessly to ensure that the children are successful and enjoy their time at school. We will continue to provide as many "Learning Adventures" as we can muster in order to provide all our children with a fabulous standard of education.
This year the Book Fair will be held in the school hall on Tuesday 13th March. Further details will follow.
Due to a delivery issue, the following two Monday lunch time menus will be served as follows:-
Monday 26th February will be Macaroni Cheese
Monday 5th March will be Sausage and Mash
To celebrate "World Book Day" the children are invited to dress up as their favourite book character on Thursday 1st March.
Congratulations to Tom, Thomas, Willow and Maddy who took part in an aquathon (swim and run) at Springfield Campus just before half term. They were competing against athletes from other schools in our cluster and were very proud to come first! They are great examples of the benefits of an active lifestyle!
Well done to the Neston Hockey team (Emily, Ciara, Lauren, Lenny, Maddy, George D, Eddie, Seth, Izzy and Alyssa) who came second in our cluster festival (losing out to Colerne only on goal difference) and who have made it through to the play offs for the county event. Our top goal scorer was Lauren, with Emily and Lenny also sending the ball to the back of the net! All of the players improved their skills during the matches, particularly with making themselves available when we were attacking and marking the opposition when we were defending. Good luck for the 2nd of March at Devizes School.
To mark Safer Internet Day, which takes place on 6th February 2018, we are pleased to be able welcome the Corsham Institute who will be discussing with the children in Chestnut how we can make the internet a safer place.

On the last Thursday of term, everyone from Year 3 up to Year 6 played in 8 a-side matches for their sports team (Red, Yellow, Blue and Green). It was wonderful to see our experienced footballers, who play for local clubs, supporting our players who are less experienced at playing football competitively. Last year, Blue Team won the cup but this year some excellent team work (lots of passing and communicating) took Red Team to the top in our 2017 intra-KS2 tournament - Go Reds! There was a lot of fair play in evidence from all the teams (well done everyone) but the team that shone the brightest in this respect was the Green Team! Many thanks to our School Games Crew for organising this exciting event and to the adults who helped out too despite many being under the weather.
