Amazing islands made by James and Liam - they were very resourceful with toilet paper rolls, cardboard, tissue paper and paint to create these beauties! Well done both, very impressive! https://t.co/fCGz6qL4xc

Year 2 had a lovely afternoon baking session yesterday as part of their food topic - flapjacks, fairy cakes and iced biscuits were on the menu! They smelt amazing, we are sure they tasted just as good! https://t.co/B7oaWFSMWb

On Friday 16th November, Southgate Primary got spotty. Children came to school wearing spotty clothes and accessories - they looked fantastic! As a school, we raised an impressive £411.40! Well done children, that really is an amount to be proud of! https://t.co/vzShR79aBK

Year 6 today enjoyed a free screening at Cineworld of Al Gore’s ‘an inconvenient sequel’ followed by a live Q&A. A very powerful film which built on their ‘Climate Crusaders’ learning journey perfectly. The children were utterly brilliant and received much deserved praise! 😎 https://t.co/upjvGDSo4q

Rewards

We run a house system which is successful in terms of promoting team spirit, greater links between the different Phases in our school, pupil’s attainment, behaviour and self-esteem. 

There are 4 houses at Southgate Primary School, each representing a well-known British historical figure: 

Nightingale, Seacole, Bell and Shakespeare. 

House points are given according to the school values and are awarded, recorded and collected on a weekly basis. 

Children are allocated into their house group in the summer term of their Reception year.  Children with older brothers and sisters at the school automatically join their siblings' house.  All other children are allocated their house group at random, but with the aim that house groups will be diverse and inclusive, with a fair mix in terms of gender, race and ability.  Each house has a captain from Year Six.

The children also receive awards for effort and achievement within class. Outstanding effort and achievement is recognised by the Headteacher and may even lead to a certificate or a postcard home!
