Parent & Carer Guide | A Warm Welcome
Everything we do at Southwark is designed to keep the children at the heart of it. Southwark children are very special to me and to all of our team. As Head Teacher, I make sure that everything that takes place in school is done so that it can have a positive effect upon the children as well as the wider school community we serve. Southwark is a place of learning and should be a sanctuary where everyone in our community can feel valued, safe, supported and empowered.
We all believe that children need to grow into healthy, well-balanced citizens who are keen to learn throughout their lives. They need to develop a breadth of knowledge, skills and understanding to equip them for life and to enable them to positively contribute towards society. We also want them to be inspired by their school experience, feel safe, happy and confident when they are here, and take great memories with them that will stay in their heads and hearts forever when they leave us. Our whole school curriculum is designed with this in mind and we all work very hard to achieve it. My role as Head Teacher is to make sure this is happening – all day and every day. I spend considerable time making sure that each child is receiving the highest quality teaching resulting in each child making good progress. All children need to have individualised attention to ensure they get the best out of school and it is my job to oversee this and ensure that it happens.
Our office staff are the first port of call for any enquiries you may have and will direct your request to the appropriate member of staff. Should you wish to receive any paper copies of any of the information published on the website, please inform our school office. Any copies will be free of charge.
