A festive time was had by all on Christmas Dinner Day!


Well done boys! Great team spirit and a determination to succeed. We are all proud of you.


We thoroughly enjoyed our author visit. We read the story, created our own character and did illustrations too.


Well done Southgate for your team spirit and tenacity at the netball tournament last week. Those smiles say it all (this was before it got dark and poured with rain!)


We are thrilled to invite Danielle Verbeeten into Southgate to talk about her super book Eddie the Elf. Danielle is the author and illustrator. There will be an opportunity to buy this wonderful book and have it autographed by Danielle herself. We can't wait!


We are striving to improve in all we do. Look at these resilient writers who persevere to do their best.

Southgate Primary School uses the GLF Maths Curriculum.

This Curriculum is driven by the DfE Primary Guidance in Mathematics and the NCETM Professional Development Materials. It ensures teaching of the whole of the National Curriculum in Mathematics, but it also identifies and prioritises the most important knowledge, skills, and understanding children need to secure year upon year to successfully progress to the next. The identified complex concepts are presented as a series of connected, microscopic steps in learning that logically build on one another, which are collated within purposefully and coherently sequenced units of learning.  Teachers’ subject, pedagogical, and pedagogical content knowledge is supported with rich guidance, which includes signposts to manipulatives and representations, language, difficult points and common misconceptions, and ideas for independent practice and application exercises.  As such, it exemplifies principles of effective curriculum design outlined in sources including the recommendations of both the EY-KS1 and KS2-KS3 EEF Guidance reports, the DfE’s Early Career and NPQLT framework, and Ofsted’s applying the EIF to mathematics documentation.


Our aim is that all pupils:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics so that they develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including in unfamiliar contexts and to model real-life scenarios.
  • Can reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry and develop and present a justification
