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.

Each year we plan a special week for the children so they learn something a little different to the statutory curriculum. In the past we have had a One World Week, learning in depth about other countries around the world, and an Enterprise Week, where each class was given a sum of money and had to find ways to increase it. This led to a wonderful market at the end of the week and children having talks from parents and community members about different businesses and careers.

This year we are planning for the children to learn all about carnivals and religious festivals, a chance for them to increase their knowledge and understanding, but also a time to get very creative in the arts. This week starts on Monday 4th June. During the week children will make costumes, headdresses and musical instruments and they will have workshops on traditional dance and music. We will end the week (Friday 8th June) with a parade and we would love community members to join us by being outside their houses, or along the roads, or even join in with our parade! We will be leaving Siddington CE School and go down the track to Pound Close, along to Parkway and down the road to Ashton Road, turn right and walk along to Elizabeth Way, up through Elizabeth Way, through the alleyway, back to Parkway and have a quick play at the park before returning to school along Pound Close. Please support us to make this a very special event!
