We are delighted to be partnering with Premier Education to deliver before and after school clubs for our children on roll at the school. Clubs take place in the school hall and run from 07:45 in the morning and until 18:00 in the evening. Bookings can be made via the following link.
St Sidwell's School Council is made up of 12 children who are elected by their class to represent them. They meet every 2 weeks to discuss issues to think of creative ideas of how to improve the school.
The Green Team meet with Mrs Hallett and take an active interest in how eco-friendly our school is. They have monitored energy use and been very pro-active in reminding us all to switch off lights and projectors when they are not needed! They have investigated waste and are ambassadors for re-cycling.
The Team also take an interest in creating an eco-friendly outdoor environment and are now involved with Devon Wildlife Trust and the Devonshire Place Residents' Association.
Please catch up with us in the outdoor learning section of the website. We are trialing a new approach to involve more children in outdoor play over the year.
Green Team worked collaboratively to complete the 'toad hole' in the wildlife area.
Music is part of our general curriculum and will be taught to all children in lessons.

Our Year 6 Peer Mediators have been specifically trained to support the children on the playground at break times and lunchtimes.
They are positive role models, modelling our school values of Respect, Friendship, Peace, Hope, Trust and Forgiveness.
They ensure that no child is left alone outside and that everyone always has a friend to play with. They support children who may be experiencing friendship issues by encouraging restorative conversations.
