School News

We had a special visitor at Siddington this term. Mrs Dougill (Siddington C of E Primary School’s previous Headteacher) surprised the children and kindly agreed to plant our Platinum Jubilee tree. The tree was donated by the Parish Council and is part of the Queen’s Green Canopy. There is a plaque next to the tree to help the children remember the Platinum Jubilee for years to come. It was lovely to see Mrs Dougill back at Siddington and a great way to finish off our new Reflection Garden space. Thank you to the Parish Council for looking after and donating the tree to the school.

An evening of music took place in the school hall, where the children danced, sang, and played instruments to their parents in the audience. It was a fantastic evening and our performers showed how hard they have been working. We have quite a talented bunch of musicians! Thank you to Mr Wiggins, Mrs Price, and Mr Meade for accompanying and supporting the children with their performances. Thank you to Miss Tranter (our school music lead) for organising the event.

The year has ended with Sports Day and the PTA Summer Fete. The quails, that the children had raised from eggs, have left school to go to their new homes. We said goodbye to our Year 6 pupils and wished them lots of luck for next year. A few sad goodbyes, but we are also excited, knowing the fun the children will have at their new secondary schools. We know our Year 6 pupils will do well and can’t wait to hear how they get on.

Thank you to all the school staff for all their hard work and relentless determination to do their best for the children. Thank you to all the parents for their continued support of the school. Finally, thank you to the children, who keep trying to do their best in all they do.

We wish everyone a very happy summer holiday and look forward to seeing everyone in September.
