Welcome to Southill Lower School
"Classrooms and corridors are filled with laughter" -
OFSTED report 2021
Southill Lower School is a warm, caring and supportive environment, in a special village environment.
I am delighted to welcome you to the school website which will give a good flavour of what we are doing and what we want to achieve for our children.
Our professional team works tirelessly to ensure children here are safe, happy and that their education is of the best quality. The curriculum, which is shared across the federation, is challenging and follows a cohesive and coherent structure from EYFS to Y4. We continue to work to develop the curriculum offer in line with the best research led practice and we value the input and collaboration with parents through attendance and with homework, to achieve the best possible outcomes for the children.
We are fortunate to be based in an idyllic setting. As well as a playground area, we have a wildlife garden; pond area that all classes access; the local woods and the playing fields with updated play equipment. Pupils are able to enjoy learning both in and out of the classroom. If you are thinking of applying for a place here, please see a link to our internal virtual tour or contact the school office arrange it. . https://tours.e4education.co.uk/southill_lower_school/
Our professional and committed governing body fully supports the school in providing the best possible educational opportunities for all and this is very much evident in providing strong direction towards excellence. In addition we have strong links with the Redborne Sports Partnership, which helps us to provide an extended and rich educational experience for our pupils and important opportunities to learn from colleagues and share best practice.
Our high expectations and excellent behaviour for learning mean that we have superb results, but in a unique setting with close links to Southill Estates and our local community. I know that all the children and parents who come to Southill find themselves wishing it was already a primary school and not wanting their children to leave.
