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 – 6
- An area Sports competition
- A swimming gala
- A science-themed transition morning for Year 5
- A transition day for children moving into Year 7
- Christmas lunch

St. Michael’s Church
Southfield is closely linked with St. Michael’s and the children work regularly with Geoff Sowden and Bella Fasham.
We visit often to learn about key events in the Christian calendar. The whole school, including parents and grandparents, attends St. Michael’s for services at harvest, Christmas and Easter in which the children perform and sing together. Geoff and Bella also attend our school and deliver assemblies. They also work with teachers to support the delivery of our R.E. curriculum in classes.
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
Entertaining our Community
This Christmas, our school choirs (Eastrop and Southfield) performed a medley of festive songs for our community at the opening of Highworth’s Christmas lights.
