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 i.e. Disadvantaged, Disadvantaged White British and SEN/D through developing interventions, parental/carer involvement and robust assessment.

Our website demonstrates the many ways in which we enjoy learning and answers most questions parents have about our school. If you don’t find the information you’re looking for on our site please contact us directly.

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.
