Neston Primary School - Our Ethos

"Inspiring Individuals to succeed"


Our aim is to: "Work hard to make this a welcoming, busy, safe and healthy school, where you will see happy, respectful children who enjoy learning and are doing their very best to achieve their full potential now and later in life”.

Our Ethos & Values

We are here to provide high quality teaching and learning experiences, enabling our children to be happy and successful. We provide a safe, secure, quality learning environment where children gain enjoyment and satisfaction from their education.

We put children first. When children enjoy all aspects of school and are enthusiastic they gain the most from their education. We believe this is delivered through the creation of a partnership between children, parents and the school.

The curriculum at our school is broad and balanced fulfilling all National Curriculum requirements. We structure learning to allow for as many creative cross curricular opportunities as possible. We want our pupils to learn from meaningful, memorable and exciting opportunities.

The school provides children with the opportunities to become involved in activities and roles inside and outside school. Children are invited to share their experiences and successes with the rest of the school both in the classroom and also during our weekly celebration assembly. 

Good behaviour is encouraged and expected from children at all times promoting self-discipline and responsibility both for themselves and others.

Great emphasis is placed upon positive relationships, between pupils and also between pupils, staff and parents. Close links with home, school and the community are fostered at all times. Good manners and respect are considered to be very important. In our school we hope that children and staff always consider the needs of others alongside their own. We aim to be an inclusive school in all aspects of school life.

We want our pupils to grow into young people who are fulfilled and able to make positive contributions to society. We hope our pupils will feel compassion and understanding for all members of society irrespective of gender, creed, race or ability.


Our school mascot is a bee. You may see one or two bees on our website and around school.

Great school. Great teaching team. School does an amazing job at supporting ALL my child's needs. They have always gone the extra mile for him. So thank you all. You do a great job!
Fabulous school with a friendly atmosphere. Staff and the Headteacher are approachable. I cannot praise the school highly enough.
For the past 9 years, through 2 children, I have always felt NPS goes the extra mile to support it's students in all areas of the curriculum. The staff are fantastic, hard-working and very approachable. It is a great school and I am glad we chose it all those years ago.
This school has always been a positive influence on my children (2 of which didn't want to leave!) I have recommended this school to several people in the past and will continue to do so in the future. High praise for all the teachers and assistants who make the school what it is!
Great team of staff at NPS. Ladies at reception are so helpful. Newsletter and Facebook page are very informative and helpful. Breakfast club - excellent - my child raves about it. Love the Friday celebration assembly. The sense of pride and encouragement felt is overwhelming - a wonderful celebration of the children.
