Siddington Primary School


Siddington Church of England Primary School is a small school serving the village and its surroundings. Tucked away down a single track lane, it is bordered by glorious countryside and a peaceful environment where children can learn and grow. The small class sizes help provide the support that the pupils need.


There are three classes with about 25 pupils in each class and a caring professional staff that deliver a broad curriculum. The school has strong links with St Peter's church and throughout the year the children celebrate Christian festivals such as Harvest Festival, Advent, Christmas and Easter with activities like fruit and vegetable market stalls, a Christmas Fayre and Christingle Service, and an Easter egg hunt or Easter hat parade. The church community also provides an Open the Book assembly each week with Bible stories. At the end of each year there is a leavers' service at Gloucester Cathedral.


The head teacher leads the school with a dedicated band of teaching staff and an active Board of Governors made up of the vicar, members of the diocese, Siddington community, the local authority, and parents.


The school kicks off each day with a breakfast club at 8am, but the actual school day starts at 8.55am and ends at 3.15pm. There are also some lovely after-school clubs which run until 4.15pm, Monday to Friday, for anyone who wants to join in.

What a treat! My aconites and snowdrops are nice and early this year in all the mild weather. The daffodils in the school flower beds are already quite tall and will not be long before they burst into colour reminding us of the spring not far away.

We have started the year with a new school website – please have a look at it and all the wonderful things the teachers prepare and the children have fun doing. We are proud that as a small school we achieve so much. Our first week was great fun with a science theme and lots of excitement with each class carrying out experiments.

We are hoping to grow our Local Governing Body and require a Foundation Governor. If you are a regular church goer or you have an involvement in the church or diocese and you would be happy to support our school in maintaining its Christian Distinctiveness, then please contact Reverend McKenzie on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Thank you.

Until next time,


Carol Dougill, Headteacher
