Netley is a happy, rights respecting school.
Everyone takes steps to better themselves and their community, as they become responsible, global citizens.
Netley Primary School is an inclusive school, exuding a warmth and generosity of spirit that comes from our happy children and diverse school community. The school is set within Netley Campus, a state of-the-art learning environment for children and adults. We have 450 children, including Woodlands, an outstanding centre for children with Autism. In 2014 OFSTED judged both Netley and Woodlands as ‘Good’ in all categories, and we are excited to be enhancing our offering further by opening a new centre for two year olds and Science Lab in the near future.
Last week, year 3 were lucky enough to go Hampstead Heath to attend a rocks and soils workshop. The children led the experiments, testing different types of soil’s properties. We learnt what impermeable meant – waterproof and malleable – easy to mould! Word and science wizards!
Netley children have returned to the Night Zookeeper with a bang! This week, we have had not one, but TWO pieces of writing chosen for the Night Times.

The Woodlands team are having weekly Makaton signing sessions so that as a team we can develop even better ways to communicate with the children that we work with. We will post a video each week so that you can learn too!
In year 2 this week, we have been listening to the story of Drum Dream Girl and imagining the things that she might have heard making music while walking in the park in Cuba. We then learnt some new verbs to help us describe the different sounds. Once we had practised matching the nouns and […]

Last day of term Letter
On Monday, Year 5 began the final week of this academic year with a visit to Hampstead Heath. We had a wonderful time orienteering. Our task was to find posts around the heath using maps and compasses as our guides. We enjoyed games of cricket and rounders so all in all, a healthy and […]

This week all of Woodlands attended the zoo! We had a great time and saw lots of animals we have only read about! Here is what some of the kids said when thinking about our day… “I liked the fish because they were swimming and they want food!” “It’s good fun at (the) zoo!” […]
