Our apples and how we used them

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.

Dear Parents/Carers of children in class Genesis,

Please return your permission slips tomorrow so that your child can go swimming.  They will also need their swimming kits and have earrings removed.  Their first swimming session is tomorrow (Tuesday 22nd Nov) and then it will resume again after Christmas. Exciting!

Dear All,

Distressing news, a SJM parent's car was vandalised today between 3:05pm and 3:12pm along Woodman's Road.  Someone walked past the dark blue people carrier and scratched a deep line across the whole length of the vehicle.  If anyone saw anything we emplore you to contact the police.  It is depressing to think that someone would do this mindless act and if you can help please do so.

We look forward to seeing you tonight at 6:30pm for our pyjama party. Adults will need to stay but there will be refreshments! Remember your Teddy Bears.See you later.

Diary: Head Teacher

02/11/2016

Today our Years 5 and 6 had a wonderful surprise Tudor Day.  The teachers hired fabulous Tudor costumes for the children to wear and arranged a wonderful banquet in the Main Hall.  Our thanks go to the PTA for providing the 'Wow' money for the event - it was a special day that the Upper Juniors are sure to remember.  The teachers would also like to mention Ethan G who showed thankfulness for the day - reflecting our school values.

WOW! What a wonderful turnout from our parents this morning for the Growth Mindset meeting.  The session was an opportunity to find out a little more about what we are doing as a school and how we can support our children (and ourselves) employ a growth mindset approach towards life and learning.  Follow-up coffee mornings will provide opportunities to share ideas, resources and ideas.  It was great to hear how many parents were already hearing their children reflecting this positive approach.  We will be reading your suggestions and feeding back to everyone further information about our school's journey and we want to hear from you too.  Our thanks to everyone who was able to attend and join in so positively. In the meantime, have a pleasant rest of the week and an enjoyable half term.

Well the day started with a big smile on our faces as Nursery and Reception sang and recited their Nursery Rhymes and songs with great enthusiasm which was a joy to see.  Thank you to everyone who came along to watch and join in!.  Mrs Welsh and Miss Hewson led the Shark Song with gusto (and great props!) and I have been humming the song all day.  The coffee morning raised just over £100 for Macmillan nurses - we know they will be very grateful for your generous contributions.  We look forward to seeing you tomorrow for our Growth Mindset coffee morning in the Main Hall at 9am.
