Ofsted Through the Ages

What we now know as Ofsted Inspections began in 1840. The school log books have a number of reports from “His/Her Majesty’s Inspectorate” including a report from 1914. A hundred years later in 2014 we had a very similar report and we can celebrate being a great school for the last hundred years.

ofsted report

“This is a very well managed school. The Headmaster’s duties of organisation, control and supervision are discharged with ability and energy. There is an atmosphere of steady and intelligent work throughout the school and as most of the children come from good homes this attainment are such as reflect credit on their teachers. Whilst much of the work is of a high quality special mention may be made of the composition of a large proportion of the boys and girls in the highest class which is of unusual merit”

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.
