Guided Reading

Children at Southfield have a dedicated Guided Reading session every day in addition to the daily Literacy lesson.

During the Guided Reading sessions the class teacher works with small groups of children everyday. These focus sessions allow the teacher to support the children in reading challenging texts and enables them to make accurate assessments that will inform future teaching.

Groups of children that are not working with the teacher are engaged in other reading activities that promote independent learning and also help them develop strategies to get the most of their reading. These activities include: making links about what they have read to real life, summarising the main parts of what they have been reading and regularly sharing what they have learnt with others.

The Sunflower Fund

We aim for Southfield to provide a happy, nurturing community which inspires children to learn and to be their best. To do this there are two main areas we would like to improve: the quality of the learning materials that are on offer to our children and the environment in which they learn. The funds we have can take us so far, but we believe if we could generate additional financial support it could benefit the school significantly.

After discussion between the Governing Body and our Headteacher, The School agreed this is an opportunity we would like to try. Therefore, to help achieve this we are asking for your support in making a voluntary financial contribution to a new ‘Sunflower Fund’.

If you would like to support the ‘Sunflower Fund’ you can do so by logging into your ParentMail account and going to the “payments” area where you will find an option to pay in installments of £5, or more if you choose (see box titled custom installment), or a one off payment of £60 per year.

Alternatively, you can set up a standing order with your bank. Please pay to the school account using reference “Sunflower”.
(Southfield Primary School, NatWest Bank Ealing, Sort code: 60-07-10, Account: 03715566).

We will also gladly accept cheques handed in at the front office.

The Governors propose reporting back to you each term on the funds that have been generated and how they have been spent.
