Our vision is to create a school community where children excel, develop a love of learning and create magical memories that will last them a life time. We have high expectations for every child to succeed through the provision of personalised, real-life learning experiences which enable them to grow into productive and valued citizens. Through our curriculum, we aim to equip our children with the skills and knowledge they need for their next stage of education as well as a passion for life-long learning and development. We believe that every child matters and that every child has the capacity and the right to succeed. We endeavour to develop the whole child, meeting their individual needs in a safe, secure environment where our differences are celebrated. We believe that our school should reflect the community we serve. The role of our school in supporting children and their families to enable academic success and social cohesion is hugely influential. We aim to create a collaborative environment where all members of the school community are highly valued, make positive contributions, and work cohesively to create an inspirational learning environment for our children to succeed.
Our values underpin everything that we do here at Southwark Primary School. They help us form our attitudes, guide our choices, and influence our behaviours. We firmly believe that these values must be shared values across our whole school community in order for us to achieve our vision. At Southwark, we have 11 values - one for each month we are in school. Each month the children, staff and parents focus on a different value, exploring what it means and how we can use this value to develop a positive, safe and inspirational place to be.
Southwark Values - as we go through the year, we will focus on a particular value each month. Please click a value below to read how these values influence our behaviours and guide our choices!
Our aims for our children can be divided into four areas which we believe are equally essential for well rounded and continued growth and development throughout childhood and into adult life.

These four elements are the chief purpose for everyone here at Southwark. Each and every member of the school community can make invaluable contributions to help us achieve these aims for all of our children.
