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

What a strange few months it has been for all of us here at school since we closed on March 20th for most of our pupils. The school community remains a happy and positive one. Pupils at home have been busy following our home learning challenges with daily maths lessons, English tasks and creative tasks. Our home learning platform allows children to photograph their work and upload it to their individual portfolios. Staff have been busy planning work and offering feedback to the children and their parents.

Since the start on June we have welcomed back the majority of our YR, Y1 and Y6 pupils. The children are in "bubbles" and only come into contact with other children and staff in their bubble. The playground looks a little different too with zones. The start and end of the days are staggered in order to avoid children crossing their bubbles. The day runs smoothly and the children are happy, safe and glad to be with their friends again- of course, whilst socially distancing as much as they can! It is amazing how quickly they adapt to new routines.

We are looking forward to welcoming 2 new members of staff in September: Mrs Katie Cook as our new head teacher and Miss Madeline Smith as our new early years' teacher. They will both be spending some time in school before September. We are hopeful that September will look a little closer to normal but meanwhile send our best wishes to you all.
