Headteacher’s welcome page
Welcome to Southfield Primary School
Over 100 years ago, in 1906 Southfield school first opened its doors to pupils from Chiswick and the local area. Since then it has evolved to become the happy, friendly and thriving place to learn that it is today. The Edwardian building on Southfield Road, Bedford Park offers a glimpse into the style of education offered at the turn of the last century with three separate entrances for Infants, Junior Boys and Junior Girls. Today the school is home to more than 520 children and reflects the diversity of our local community.
For every child, we aim to provide a happy, nurturing community which inspires them to learn and to be their best.
At Southfield we value:
Our SIP priorities for 2017-2018 are:
•to further embed the school’s vision and values by widening the curriculum through better teaching of British Values and the PSHE curriculum;
•to improve reading outcomes by developing the teaching and learning of reading skills across the school;
•to improve writing outcomes by ensuring better coverage of writing skills and applying them across the curriculum;
•to develop maths teaching and learning through consistency of practice, even better curriculum coverage and more use of practical apparatus;
•to close the attainment gap for specific underachieving groups – disadvantaged, White British disadvantaged, Somali, English as an Additional Language and SEND, through developing interventions, parental/carer involvement and robust assessment.
