Welcome to the St John's Mead School Web Site

The Good Life.
The Good Life.

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.

As you know, Skoolbo, the free on-line programme for English and Maths, has taken off at SJM.  We currently rank 4th across the country!  As a follow up to the parents' meeting  there will be two drop in sessions for parents and carers to work with their children in the computer suite on Skoolbo:

Tues 10th February 2:45 - 3:15pm

Thurs 12th February 2:45 - 3:15pm

The places will be limited to 12 per session, so let the office know if you would like to attend. 

You are also welcome to use the computer suite after school on Tuesdays to supervise your child using Skoolbo or researching homework (although printing is not permitted).

We look forward to seeing you soon or hearing how Skoolbo is taking off in your home.

Great news!  Miss Dolan, Mrs Hicks and Mrs Lodge have started a new Reception and KS1 (Years 1 and 2) singing club on Wednesday lunchtimes.  'Sing along a lunchtime' started this week and has already proved a big hit. 

We know how popular and wonderful the KS2 Choir is and now that has been extended with a Singing Club aimed particularly for boys on Thursday lunchtimes.  It is fabulous how music is thriving across the school.

Wow, the weeks are flying by and it is already halfway through the school year so time to say thank you to our old House Captains and a big welcome to our new ones.

Congratulations to Grace C and Jack S (Yellow), Danielle G and Callum R (Red), Abi B and Edward L (Blue) and Emma C and Oliver C (Green).  All these children were nominated by their peers to represent their house teams and I know they will do a fabulous job as House Captains.

WOW!  All our children have performed so wonderfully this week in their Christmas performances.  The singing across the school has been fabulous as demonstrated by the SJM Now That's What We Call Christmas CD!  I'm looking forward to hearing our choir sing with the Westerleigh Brass Band tonight.

What a fabulous morning spent with our grandparents.  The KS1 children enjoyed performing their play, the choir sang and grandparents were shown around the classrooms.  At 2pm it is the turn of KS2 to perform their dress rehearsal to grandparents and parents/carers with small children.  Exciting, it is definitely the Christmas season!
