• Our motto is

    'Opening Minds, Creating Futures'

Welcome to Sidbury C of E Primary School

Firstly we would like to warmly welcome you to our school through our website.  At Sidbury we are TEAM Sidbury.  We strongly believe that Together Everyone Achieves More!  We are extremely lucky to comprise of over 70 families, 140 pupils, 25 staff, and a network of local neighbours and organisations.  We all work enthusiastically together, as a committed TEAM, to ensure that everyone within our community, particularly the pupils, have open minds and bright futures ahead of them.

Our school prides itself upon being a partnership, where all parents, carers, teachers, support staff and children work together so that your children enjoy high self-esteem; and for families to see and share in their successes.  We are exceptionally well equipped for a small village school and one of our greatest assets is our idyllic location and extensive grounds.  We seek to inspire and challenge every pupil in order to help them develop their character, confidence, and sense of compassion and spirituality to achieve their full potential in all that they do.

Our success with ‘opening minds’ and ‘creating futures’ depends to a very large extent upon the formation of good relationships between home and school as well as between adults in school and your children. As a Team of staff we are all highly dedicated, forward thinking and reflective practitioners, we all seek to inspire children to become ‘Super Learners’.  Guy Claxton’s Learning Powers enable us to have a shared vocabulary with children and their families in order to achieve this.

As a school we aim to contribute to a wider community that helps children appreciate their world and the responsibility they have to preserve it.  We work in close partnership with St Giles’ Church, Sidbury, and celebrate key events within  the Christian calendar both in the church and in school.  Our school’s core Christian values are; respect, honesty, kindness, trust, and forgiveness.   These values form the basis of our daily collective worship and are a focus for reflection times in the classroom.

We hope that you enjoy viewing and finding out about our school online, our website aims for you to see a snapshot of our school in action. We encourage current parents into school regularly throughout the year to engage in their child’s education.  If you are a prospective parent please telephone the school to arrange a visit, as this is the best way to experience the school’s atmosphere in what we believe is a very special school.

Kind Regards

Charlotte Hill
