Walking to school this morning I could hear the birds singing, saw a squirrel scurrying across the moors and the cows happily chewing the grass. Then to my delight I saw a rainbow picture in the Saunders window, a note and picture from Harry and also one from Seb on the notice board outside school wishing everyone well, this really did make me smile, thank you. 

Keep safe and take care,

Sam Bowden

Message from St Neot Church

Dear all,

 We pray that you are well and safe with support around you at these times.

 A moment of calm

 A little before 6.00pm each day, consider accessing our church website and using the video on our front page to take a moment to be still.

 On the website you find a short video which includes the Church clock striking 6.00pm followed by familiar images and a prayer for you to share.

 You can find this on the St Neot Church Website from Sunday:




We have a long history-the school began in the 1870s and the new school was opened by HRH the Princess Royal in 2003.  We have excellent accommodation comprising classrooms, hall and reception area grouped around a spacious library.  Outside there are extensive grounds including garden areas, hard play, verandas, play equipment and sports facilities. Children attend from the village and a wide area beyond.  We also offer wraparound care including Breakfast and After School Clubs.

You and your child are very important to us.  Each child is provided with work to suit their age and ability, and proceeds at an appropriate pace.  Children are under the particular care of their class teacher who builds up a supportive relationship with them.  We endeavour to ensure all children have a happy and purposeful education at all times.  We aim to equip them with the necessary social and academic skills to enable them to achieve their full potential in today’s ever changing and technological society.

We are always happy to discuss any matters individually with parents.  A visit can always be arranged and you will be most welcome.

At St Neot School we promote British values:

  • democracy
  • the rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.
