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 and 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.

In addition to this St Sidwell's also offers opportunities for children to learn to play instruments individually. These lessons are run by external providers and we currently have teachers who visit for the following instruments:

  • Guitar
  • Piano
  • Violin
  • Drums
  • Saxophone 
  • Flute

Children in years 4 and 5 have also been learning to play brass instruments in the Summer term over the last few years and this opportunity is funded by the Friends of St Sidwell's School.

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. 

Every Monday and Tuesday, Premier Education offer the children the chance to take part in a range of different sports. These take place on the court, and range from football, basketball, netball, team games etc.

Knitting is a great skill to learn. It requires concentration and a steady hand. Children enjoy spending time learning how to knit whilst socialising with their friends at lunchtime. 

Learning how to communicate using British Sign Language is a useful life skill. It adds to the inclusive culture and ethos of our school. The children start by learning the alphabet and then build up to being able to sign a simple conversation with someone else, asking and answering questions. We learn how to sign songs and we share these in Worship with the rest of the school. 


Our Digital Leaders do a great job of ensuring that our IT equipment is well looked after. 

They are responsible for making sure our class Chrome Books are always fully charged, and that they are put away safely at the end of each day. 

They also take responsibility for making sure that the KS1 ipads are looked after and they help the younger children with putting them away and on charge. 

It is because of our Digital Leaders that we always have access to technology to support our learning across the curriculum. 

Year 1 and Year 2 children love spending lunchtimes in GOAL Club (Get On and Learn) where they get to explore lots of different ideas through exciting activities. These sessions are led by the children, following lines of enquiry and the children's interests. 

Children's creative writing skills are encouraged through this lunchtime club. Each session is centred around a writing stimulus that captures the children's imagination and offers them the opportunity to build on their vocabulary and writing skills.
