REMINDER - we are welcoming parents and carers to join us tomorrow morning from 9-10am to join us as we open up our classrooms to allow you an insight into how we teach English! Unfortunately, as it is a lesson, it will not be suitable for younger siblings to attend.

Beautiful singing by 6 Peake this morning in their class assembly! Well done children!


6 Peake Class Assembly is tomorrow morning - we look forward to welcoming parents & carers. Please note, following some confusion last week, siblings within the school won't be watching class assemblies going forward.


We do hope as many Parents & Carers will join us next Wednesday 3rd October from 9-10am, where teachers will be opening up their classrooms and allowing you to observe how English is taught at Southgate!

Year 5 had a lot of fun playing team building games in PE last week!


Year 6 had a wonderful morning at The Hawth taking part in the annual Junior Citizen event! They learned all about staying safe whilst out and about. 😎👍


This week in year 1 we have been working hard on our handwriting. We have been ordering sentences and we made paper boats to sail around the world.


We have had a brilliant morning with Simon Drake Photography today, taking updated photos for our prospectus. The children looked so smart in their new uniform!


Year 5 have enjoyed a busy first week - doing a Mayan artifacts investigation, playing the maths game "nice and nasty" and preparing and delivering a presentation on a Mayan city - well done Year 5!


Year 1 have enjoyed exploring numbers to ten this week. They have been learning to write, count and recognise these numbers and have enjoyed getting creative with their learning by drawing number in glitter and building them with pasta.

School Council

Southgate Primary's School Council is the voice of the children at our school.

The role of our School Council is

  • to represent the views of the children;

  • to raise issues with the adults and tell them about any problems;

  • to have a say in decisions about things that affect the children at our school;

  • to play an active part in making our school a better place.

At the beginning of the school year, each class from Year 1 to Year 6 elects a Councillor and a Deputy Councillor to represent the views of the children in their class.  The School Council then meets every half term to discuss issues that are important to the children or to provide pupils' opinions to help our school leadership team make decisions. 

Sometimes the children will choose items to be discussed, and sometimes the school leadership team will ask that a matter is taken to the School Council so that they can find out what the children think.  In recent months this has included decisions about how children would like to celebrate Book Week and fundraise for Comic Relief, how we can improve our school website, giving feedback on school grounds, etc.  

The agenda and minutes of School Council meetings are shared amongst our whole school community, giving all children, staff, parents and carers the opportunity to see how our School Council works, the decisions they help to make and the impact they have on Southgate Primary as a whole. 

We are very proud of our School Council and the important role they play in our school.

We are currently in the process of electing our school Council. Watch this space!
