Nursery trips to the allotments


The Nursery had perfect weather for their trips to the local allotments at Emlyn Gardens. The children loved it and learnt so much from the experience.

Here is part of a helper’s commentary on one of the visits: “The children wandered in single file, staying on a straight and narrow path to avoid trampling any seedlings or vegetables growing which included rhubarb, chard, rosemary and other edible delights.
A variety of creatures were spotted including spiders, ants, snails, frogs, earthworms, millipedes, slugs as well as a tame and well-fed feline that was partial to head rubs and rolling in the soil”.

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.
