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 school priorities for 2018-2019 are:
•to further improve writing outcomes for all children, including those who are targeted for Mastery / Greater Depth;
•to further develop maths teaching and learning, including for those targeted for Mastery/ Greater Depth, through better consistency of practice and more use of practical apparatus;
•to continue to improve attainment and progress for underachieving groups across the school including Disadvantaged, White Eastern European, Somali and children with English as an Additional Language;
•to introduce a new assessment and tracking system to enable more accurate assessment and improved analysis of data;
