Thank you to Rhodri and Alex who on behalf of the Scarlets Rugby Team visited our school on Monday 12th June to show our children the Pro 12 Trophy which they won playing against Munster on Saturday 27th May 2017. The Scarlets had a fantastic win, beating Munster in the final by 46 points to 22 at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.
On Monday 3rd July – Class 5PW spent a wonderful morning ‘Oscars Style’ at the Torch Theatre in Milford Haven.
This was the culmination of 6 months hard work where they won Neyland School’s Film Festival. This annual event saw three classes compete against each other on a common theme – this year Roahl Dahl’s – Snow White and the seven dwarfs. Staff, pupils and parents all watched the films on the big screen in the school hall – a month earlier.
The children began the morning with a strawberry and ‘champagne’ breakfast followed by their visit to the Torch. The management of the Torch Theatre kindly opened the Theatre especially for a VIP trip – where the children watched both their own film and also Despicable Me 3. The Friends of Neyland school paid the reduced special theatre price and Edwards Coaches offered a special rate for the transport (paid for through DVD sales).
Thank you to all involved!
Armed Forces Celebration Day – 30.06.17
A massive thank you to the 14 Signal Regiment from RAF Brawdy for allowing Corporal James Cash and Lance Corporal Connor Hamilton to join us for our armed forces celebration day. They carried out team building and communications exercises with the children and fitness sessions.
Also thank you to all our parents and friends who have donated cakes for the day using ingredients and recipes from days gone by. All proceeds from the sale of the cakes will go to the NSPCC and the Reading Dogs Society.
A few sports day photos.

On Wednesday 12th October our school hosted a sensory impairment coffee morning. It mainly targeted children with hearing and visual problems. It was well attended by children from all around the County and we hope to make it an annual event.
Several of our pupils accompanied by our Headteacher and governors from our school attended the short service at The Cenotaph in Neyland at 11am on Friday 11th November 2016. The children laid crosses and a wreath on behalf of the school. The service was officiated by Reverend Alan Chadwick and Curate Marc Walford.
Dosbarth Oren and Dosbarth Glas visited Tesco’s in Haverfordwest on Tuesday 18th October 2016 for a ‘farm to fork’ experience. They saw how bread was made in the Bakery and tasted a selection of different types of bread and fruit! It was a brilliant trip.
Another stunning display of wild flowers to the front and back of the school. Well done to Mrs Moir and her Eco Club for their hard work preparing the ground.
Our Year 6 pupils held their prom night on Wednesday 13th July 2016. As you can see from these photographs they had an amazing night. The Magician was mesmerising and the fabulous food was prepared by our own Mrs Mills. Thank you to everyone who gave up their own time and helped make the event a success.
Friends of Neyland Community School organised a car boot sale and fun day on Sunday 26th June. Despite the weather it proved a big success and was well attended by friends and parents. Thank you to everyone who came and supported our school.
A selection of photos from our Sports Day held on 22nd June 2016. We have pictures of all the winners with their certificates but unfortunately we can not show them as they have the children’s names on them. All winners will be given a photograph to take home with them.
Congratulations to our school football team on coming 3rd in the Fair Trade Euro 2016 Football Tournament held at Tavernspite School on 24th June.
We were told that our school brought talent, skills, fairness and fun; with the Spanish flag flying we helped to make it a great event!
We recently held our school elections for the various groups and committees within our school. Here are some photos of the successful candidates.
The Annual Film Festival. Mrs Jones accompanied several of our Year 6 pupils to the annual film festival held at the Torch Theatre on Thursday 14th July. This was a red carpet event and the children were treated to a sparkling reception prior to leaving to attend. Unfortunately we did not win this year.
Congratulations to our girls kwik cricket team who came runners up in the tournament held on 25th May at Cresselly Cricket Club.
End of year certificates were given out to selected pupils for making a huge effort with Welsh this year. The decision was tough for teacher’s to make as all pupils have put in a tremendous effort. Da iawn a diolch i pawb wrth Miss. C.
On Friday 14th October we celebrated “Shwmae Day”. Everyone was encouraged to dress up in red, white and green. We held a special assembly, sang Welsh songs and gave out “Welsh Speaker of the Week” awards. At playtime we had a Welsh graffiti wall to write down our favourite Welsh words. We also had Welsh vocabulary around our canteen serving hatch so we could ask for our lunch in Welsh. In the afternoon, we invited parents in for tea and cake and to learn some basic Welsh vocabulary. They met up with their children who showed them some of the work they have been doing in Welsh lessons.
We are a “Get Reading. Keep Reading. Change Everything.” school. We use the highly successful Read Write Inc. Phonics programme to teach our children to read, write and spell. Our children do well in the phonics screening check and by Year 2, the majority are fluent readers with the best chance of success in the KS1 tests. Ruth Miskin Training recognise us for teaching the programme with fidelity and passion – we know what it takes to make reading and writing pleasurable and rewarding for our children. This badge recognises that we:
- Raise standards in reading and writing for our children
- Are all expertly trained by Ruth Miskin Training – including our headteacher (Mrs E Griffiths)
- Gain the latest programme updates through regular visits from our Ruth Miskin trainer
- Support our most vulnerable readers with extra one-to-one teaching every day.

The Friends of Neyland Community School held a very successful and well supported Bingo evening to raise funds for Christmas activities for the pupils of the school. Thank you to everyone who attended, helped out or dressed up in fantastic Halloween costumes.
We held a summer tea party for the members of our School Council, Criw Cymraeg, E Safety Committee and Eco Committee to say thank you for all their help and support over the year. Even though the weather meant we had to hold the party inside it didn’t spoil any of the enjoyment!
