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.

The hatching of the chicks has caused delight across the whole school community with everyone popping in to see them battling their way out of their eggs.  They are now looking more fluffy yet still very chirpy!

Today the year 2s had a fabulous morning in Yate enjoying a local music festival.  Our thanks go to all the parents for supporting with costumes etc.   So that everyone gets the opportunity to hear the children sing we are holding a mini festival of our own this afternoon.  The event has been advertised in the parents evening letters and newsletters but just in case you missed it here is a reminder:  Tuesday 15th March 2:15pm in the Main Hall.  This will be an opportunity to hear your children (in Years 1 and 2) sing and then afterwards share their books.  We look forward to seeing you later.  If not, the children's books will be available during next week's parents' evenings.

Congratulations to our fabulous football team who played their first match on Thursday and won conclusively 12 - 0. It was a terrific team effort - they even shared the match report to the school on Friday.

A huge THANK YOU to all the parents, governors, staff and children who made Saturday's Working Party so successful.  As always, the day was a fun one filled with good cheer with everyone working together to make the school grounds look wonderful.  Special thanks to Mark, Ian and Tim (and children) who removed and replaced the benches in the KS2 playground.  There are a few more to replace so do not worry if your favourite spot has disappeared.  Planters were weeded, repaired, painted and sometimes removed and replaced; trees trimmed and hedges hacked.  I am sure you will agree, it all looks great.  Thanks also to all those who contribued wonderful cakes and soups to keep us going throughout the day - yum!  Our thanks from the whole school community.
