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

December was a very hectic month with nativities, and thank you to our local residents who watched and passed on so many thanks, the choir singing in church at the Christmas Tree Festival, the pantomime in Cheltenham, the school Christmas Fair, held by our wonderful PTA, the Christingle service at St Peter's Church, thank you to Rev. McKenzie and our church members, the Christmas lunch and party day wearing Christmas jumpers and raising money for Save the Children, and of course all the craft with glitter and glue galore! It is always such a special time in school and brings everyone together in true village school / community style.

January has / is going to start with a bang (as this is being written in December). All the children in Kemble and Siddington CE Primary Schools are going on a trip to London Science Museum to add a little sparkle to a grey month. The children will all have a science theatre / workshop and learn about different areas of science – we are hoping to inspire, excite as well as educate and have fun of course! It will be a wonderful start to a week of science.


Until next time,


Carol Dougill, Headteacher
