If you would like your child to attend please let us know by Thursday at the latest so that you child can start on Monday.


School will be open on Friday 5th June until 12.30pm



This week there are home learning booklets for each year group under the 'home learning' tab.  You do not need to print these booklets off.  These are an aid to home learning this week. There is no expectation that your child uses these booklets. 




Message from Mrs Bowden 29.05.2020


Dear Parents/Carers,


Thank you to all those that responded to the email regarding children attending school on Monday 1st June 2020. I was taken back by the responses that were sent and the kindness, consideration and support shown to all the staff. If you haven’t replied please do not turn up on Monday 1st June as we will not have planned for your child to return on this date.  Some parents have requested that their child may return on the Monday 15th June 2020. If this is required confirmation must be sent to secretary@st-neot.cornwall.sch no later than 11am on Wednesday 10th June.  When we receive information regarding children in Years 2, 3, 4 an 5 we will inform you of our intention for their return.


A huge thank you to all those keyworker and vulnerable children who have made these last few weeks so memorable and pleasurable, you have been incredible and a joy to have in school.  Also thank you to the parents for their kind words and appreciation of the support that the staff have been able to give. Thank you to Harry and his mum for getting up early to make flapjacks and to Anna and Faith for delivering pasties and sausage rolls.  I feel walking to school compensates for these treats. 


I would also like to thank all those parents, relatives and friends who voted for the school to win a Charlie Bear with such incredible comments … I can declare that we did win! We now have an amazing lion cub called Nuala who will take pride of place in Dee’s office. 


To all those children who have sent in their home school learning to share with us on the website we are really proud of you. Some of you will be continuing with home learning, we do understand that this may be tough at times but it is essential that reading, writing and maths skills are still being taught alongside creative activities. This week under ‘Home Learning’ booklets are available for each year group. There are also plenty of websites on the resources pages to help. From Monday 8th June teachers will be posting learning activities to be completed at home, please share these at, so we can plan the next steps to learning.  


Congratulations to Mrs Martin whose beautiful baby grand-daughter was born Wednesday 27th May at 7:15am weighing 6lb 7oz.


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.
