Southfield Junior School

  • "This is a good school. Southfield is calm and orderly, but has a 'buzz' of activity. Leaders have set out clear and high expectations. Teachers have the secure knowledge of the curriculum to be able to challenge pupils." - Ofsted 2019

Our Community

We know that one thing that makes Southfield a really special place is the community that surrounds it.

We feel incredibly lucky to be part of a supportive community that wants our school to be the best it can be.

Over time, as we make even stronger links with different groups in our community, this page will grow.

Our Partnership with Eastrop Infant School

Our strongest link is with Eastrop Infant School which is where the vast majority of our children come from when they start Year 3.

We work together as a partnership to make sure that the children’s transition is smooth and they start their time at Southfield feeling confident and eager to learn.

Highworth Warneford School

The vast majority of our children in Year 6 move onto Highworth Warneford School and Year 7.

During the year, the staff and pupils of Warneford organise events which we join in with:

  • PE multi skills days for Years 3 – 5
  • A swimming gala
  • A science-themed transition morning for Year 5
  • Science workshops for Year 4
  • Links with Maths and English Leads from both schools
  • A transition day for children moving into Year 7

St. Michael’s Church

Southfield is closely linked with St. Michael’s and the children work regularly with Bella  and the wider team. 

We visit often to learn about key events in the Christian calendar.  They work with teachers to support the delivery of our R.E. curriculum in classes.  We are also able to attend the Christmas and Easter workshops which the children enjoy. 

Fundraising 

The children and families of Southfield are keen fundraisers and this year we’ve managed to support:

  • Swindon Food Bank (Harvest collection)
  • British Legion Poppy Appeal
  • BBC Children in Need
  • Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day
  • Empower Gambia
