Welcome to the St John's Mead School Web Site

A warm welcome to St John's Mead School. We are situated in the Market town of Chipping Sodbury lying at the foot of the southern Cotswold escarpment below Dodington Park in southern Gloucestershire 8 miles north-east of Bristol. As the Chipping in its name implies, it was once an important market centre in medieval times and stands at the crossroads on the main route between Bristol, Oxford and London.

St John's Mead School is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England Primary School which serves the community of Chipping Sodbury in South Gloucestershire and is controlled by the Local Authority. Voluntary controlled schools are schools that were originally controlled by the Church.

The school currently has 308 primary aged pupils and a Nursery for 60 children. The school teaches the National Curriculum and religious education follows the Local Education Authority's agreed syllabus.

Diary: Head Teacher


Congratulations to the Junior Swimming Team for doing so well at the Saturday Swimming Gala yesterday - not only did the Year 5/6 team win the 4 x 25m relay, it looks like they have set a new course record.  Photo and more info to follow.  Huge thanks go to Mrs Pritchard (who supported the team all evening) and Mrs Hodey for all their help.


Huge CONGRATULATIONS to our Digital Leaders who created and led an interesting, informative assembly today about keeping safe in the electronic world.  The team focused upon protecting yourself from revealing personal information online.  The Digital Leaders also launched a competition to raise awareness about keeping safe with the closing date Tuesday 7th February.  


I have been so impressed with the effort and care Isaac B has put into developing this term's Art Competition.  The theme is 'Space'.  To enter children need to bring their art work in, labelled on the back with their name, class name and title of their artwork with 50p per entry.  All work will be on display the last week of term in the Library.  All entries need to be handed in by Wednesday 1st February.  Happy Art Times!
