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.

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!

Wow, what an exciting netball match last night!  It was a thrilling match as SJM fought back from 2:0 to win 5:4.  I was so proud of how well the team played.  Wohoo, well done Team SJM!
