Last December, some pupils in Year 6 were awarded a grant by Unilever of almost £1,000 towards an air quality project. We want to measure the air quality on the streets around Netley as we are concerned about the effects of pollution on the health of our community, particularly children. We invested in some diffusion […]
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.
In light of recent events, our children have been thinking about what we can do to help London. Inara in Class 1VB spurred the school to engage in dialogue about the terrorist incident in London Bridge and Borough Market with her heartfelt plea. Class 1EH in their class assembly beautifully showcased the importance of being […]
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!” […]

Last week Nursery went on a trip to London Zoo. It was a very hot day but the animals didn’t seem to mind. We were lucky to see one of the tigers really close as it slept against the window. We really enjoyed looking at the penguins. They looked like they were having so much fun in […]
On Monday, 5KA had an opportunity to visit the City Learning Centre for a workshop in robotics. Using robots created by LEGO, we programmed them to move, sense obstructions and even identify colours. We had a wonderful and insightful day which increased our coding knowledge and gave us the chance to use new coding programs.
Netley had its first ever Spelling Bee and it was epic! The children battled it out in front of a live audience to be crowned their year group Spelling Bee Champion! Well done to all the contestants who took part, our runners-up and indeed all the children who practised their spellings at home. The children are raising […]
On Wednesday, Woodlands joined KS1 and reception for Sport’s Day. We left school at 11am and walked to Regent’s Park, where we sat under a tree and ate our packed lunches. We then walked to an oval where we participated in different activities! These included running, egg and spoon, rob the nest and different parachute […]
1EH enjoyed the warm weather in the garden with our special friend Elmer (our class toy). We made sandwiches and watermelon slices to enjoy while listening to some stories. Mustaqim found a spider in the grass! He made sure our new eight legged friend was safe.

Tarin’s […]
