Message from Mrs Bowden 17.07.2020


Dear Parents and Carers


We only have a few days until the end of term, I would like to say a huge thank you to you all for your support and understanding through this unprecedented time.  This has been a very trying period for us all and decisions at times have been very difficult to make. We are sad that we haven’t been able to accommodate all pupils during the summer term. Well done to all those both in school and at home, and to parents who have continued to provide a stimulating education for all the children.


Careful consideration has been given to provision for after school club. At parents request we will resume normal hours from 3:10 until 5:30pm in September for Riverside and 8.00-8:45 am for Breakfast Club.  If you would like to book your child’s place for September please email by Wednesday, 2nd, September. 


I would like to say how extremely proud I am of the year 6’s this year, Jack, Kerenza, Evie, Alex, Jessica, Emily, Dottie, Hudson, Ben, Morgan, Harry, Ellie and Joseph. They have missed out on many experiences, but have done this with maturity, tolerance and understanding. I wish every one of them good luck in their new schools.  I am sure that their future will hold opportunities for them to become well rounded and successful adults. A huge well done from all at St Neot School.


The cross country team have been very successful this year. William J was to run in the County Championship but unfortunately this was cancelled. Each of them have received medals for their outstanding performance, a very well done to Kerenza, Neave, Summer, George, Oscar, William, Ben, Imogen and Samuel who all won medals.


Mr Jewell and the children have secured the Unicef Bronze Award for Rights Respecting School for St Neot School. Unicef works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. Our Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens. Well done. 


Thank you for the kind donation from Xander’s and Mack’s grand parents and from Samuel's parents. The money will go towards toys for Riverside. Thank you to Alyce for the kind donation of toys which will also be used in Riverside and Breakfast Club.


Tom is able to resume drum lessons in the autumn term. Please contact for further information. All outside agencies will follow the procedures we have in place. 


The staff and governors of St Neot have been exceptional this year. They have shown such dedication and commitment to the school and the community. I personally can’t thank them enough for their support, generosity and care during this unforeseen time.  Each person has been a team player and has shown that even through some difficult times, by working together we can still ensure a stable environment for the children.


I would like to wish you all a safe and happy holiday. We all look forward to welcoming the children back in September.


Take care and best wishes to you all.


Sam Bowden

Teach your child about social distancing

What parents can do:


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.
