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.

Remember: labelled sunscreen lotion, waterbottles and hats! It's going to be a fun day!


Reminder: Children will need to wear their PE kits to school on Wednesday for a day of sporting events.  Please remember sun cream, hats and water bottles - we are feeling optimistic!


Congratulations to our cross country runners who did very well in the recent cross country races.  The Girls Team came 2nd, Boys Team 4th and Alex came 2nd in the individual boys.  Well done Speedy SJM Runners! 


Inset days

Diary: Head Teacher


What a wonderful morning!  The children organised a fabulous fair with a wide range of stalls for everyone to enjoy.  I'm typing this with very bright orange nails thanks to Sienna-Jade and her team!  Apparently Brazil was the chosen country, Candyfloss the name of the bear and 200+ the record for 'keepie-uppies'.  Huge thanks to all the parents and grandparents who supported the event by providing prizes, resources and loose change.  Everyone had a great time and the money raised will go to charities of the children's choosing.


Huge THANKS go to Mr Wesley Henderson-Figg who saved the day last night by stepping in to run the Children's Disco due to a last minute family emergency of the previously booked company.  It was a fun night and there was some fabulous dancing.  A special mention to Phoebe for her wonderful dancing and Chantelle too! 


Congratulations to our fabulous Year 6 who had us laughing and crying during their final performance and Leavers' Service in the church today.  Every child reminisced through anecdotes, poems or prayers and the singing was a joyful celebration of their time at SJM.  There was hardly a dry eye in the hall last Friday either.  Thanks to Mrs Sillick for the photo show afterwards showing the children through their years at primary school.  Now it is time for the Leavers' Lunch!
