Neatishead CofE Primary School

What People are Saying

I would like to say we have both really enjoyed coming into Neatishead the last couple of years. It’s a lovely school and all the staff and children have made us very welcome and are a real credit to the community. 

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the staff who organise the choir. Charlotte absolutely loves it and I have to say how lovely it was this morning as I heard them singing for a brief few minutes it brought tears to my eyes with how beautiful they all sounded!

Assembly with Revd Taylor was a wonderful explanation of The Epiphany. It was easy for the children to understand and very moving for myself.

I thought the play was fantastic last night.. Well done to all staff it was brilliant. 
Loved the 12 days of Christmas getting all the audience up, that was hilarious and fun. 

It was interesting to see how maths is taught today and to see the enthusiasm of students and teachers. Thank you.

Really lovely morning. Shows us fun ways to learn. I’ll be pinching some ideas for home. Thank you.

Mr Murphy clearly has magic in his fingertips! “Click, click, click!”

The option to chose the difficulty level of challenges is super!

We would like to say a huge thank you for inviting us to the Harvest Festival. It was lovely to all celebrate together again. Also a big thank you for the lovely cake and soup. Amazing to eat produce grown by the pupils in school! Poppy and Pippas Grandad Norm tucked straight in!!

Well I just wanted to say the church this morning was an absolute delight 😊 The children spoke so well
Well done to all the staff 👏

Thank you for allowing me to join you in your assembly. It was wonderful to see how engaging both Reverend David and Reverend Taylor are. The children were engrossed (as was I). Everyone joined in beautifully with happy smiling faces and the year 6 children putting chairs away at the end were very polite and helpful. I really enjoyed it and am already looking forward to the next one. Thanks again. Well done everyone! 

“Lily has been incredibly happy at Neatishead and we simply cannot match the level of care you have provided her with. To say we are grateful would not do how we feel about the school justice. You have genuinely assisted Lily more than we could ever have hoped for.”

“This school has a nurturing and friendly atmosphere”

Meeting such a motivated and enthusiastic group of children and seeing those qualities replicated in all the teachers and support team was quite inspirational.

“What a lovely bunch of children you have. They asked questions and were interested in what I was doing. They were also very polite”
