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.

 

Latest news

We held a prayer space morning recently and the children, with community members and parents, came together to create new spaces in school where they can reflect, be at peace and say prayers if they want to. Our theme this time was caring and it enabled children to reflect upon our vision, not only how they care for others, but people who care for them. Thank you to everyone who helped to make this a very special morning.

We are now thinking about Christmas and the countdown has begun! Over the coming weeks we will focus on the very beginning of the New Testament and how, after many years of waiting God sent his son to care for us. Our nativity 'Hoity Toity Angel' will allow the children to learn about the news of the birth of Jesus in a fun way. We hope that many of you will be able to enjoy our Christmas celebrations with us. Although early, we wish everyone a very Happy Christmas! See you all in the New Year!

Until next time,

 

Carol Dougill, Headteacher
