Welcome to Soudley School
We are a caring and successful primary school in the beautiful village of Soudley in the Forest of Dean.
We promote a safe, happy and stimulating learning environment, where expectations are high and our children take pride in their achievements.
Our recent Local Authority Review (November 2015) noted the distinct way in which the teachers, support staff, parents and community work together. People that visit always comment on the friendly atmosphere, and we are very proud of this. Our recent successful Ofsted report (November 2011) said the inspector recognised the “very special ethos and caring nature of the school that provides children with a very safe environment in which to learn and develop.”
Underpinning everything we do is the sense of care, trust and responsibility that we feel are necessary for all children to succeed.
Our school’s vision is for us to be a community of learners, working together to improve the outcomes and experiences for our children.soudley-school-a-community-of-learners
The school dates back to 1875 and has been extended and refurbished over the years. This year we have added more space for our youngest children, providing them with access to our Early Year outdoor area directly from the classroom.
Our buildings are set in extensive grounds in the heart of the village. We have four teaching spaces, a library, study room and a hall. In addition to the indoor learning environment, we have a large playground and playing area. Last year, with the help of Big Lottery and Active Gloucestershire, we were able to enhance the playground and develop the children’s play with new additions including a climbing wall, climbing frame and performance stage.Just beyond the school gates we have the fantastic resource of a woodland circle in the forest adjacent to the school field. Alongside the natural environmental resources and historical heritage of the village (which includes the Dean Heritage Museum) the children at Soudley School are given many opportunities to enhance learning through outdoor study.
There are five teachers and nine learning support workers who work together with the governors, parents and community in the teaching and learning of our pupils. We extend a warm welcome to you to visit our school..
