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-west 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 Education 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.

A big well done to our new House Captains who have taken over from the previous fabulous Captains almost seamlessly.  A huge thank you to  Reece's dad (and family ) for fitting our new bird box and camera.  We look forward to seeing little visitors soon.


Huge thanks to the PTA for hosting such an enjoyable evening and special thanks go to Mr Paul Robins for being such a fabulous caller.  I am sure everyone who attended would agree, it was a great night.  It almost made up for having to miss our children singing at the Bath Forum, an opportunity I am sure they will all cherish and remember. 

On Monday it's our Easter Service so we look forward to seeing you if you are free to join us.


Happy New Year!  It is wonderful to see our children coming back to school enthusiastic and raring to go.  A special big well done to our Stars of the Week: Ellis and Courtney for good effort with their learning; Tate, Jess, Madison and Oliver for fabulous homework and great presentation; Ryan and Jensen for applying their VCOP skills to their writing; Callum for being all round great!  Phoebe for effort and kindness, Alfie, Melissa, Jonathan, Caitlin, Ciaran, Abi, Evie Daniel, Elin and Sebastian for great effort in subjects such as reading, maths, homework, behaviour  and attitude.  WELL DONE!
