Thank the school
Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.
Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.
Special Education Needs
Southfield is a purpose-built primary school for children with moderate learning difficulties. We cater for children in the age range 4 to 11 years and have 80 places. Our children are taught the full range of National Curriculum subjects but in smaller class groups and at a pace more suited to their needs. We place a strong emphasis on letting the children know they can succeed and that we value individual achievement. At Southfield, the staff and governors are determined to create a caring environment and provide learning experiences that are challenging and exciting. In recent years, we have received several awards; School Achievement Award for Excellence, Artsmark Gold, and Eco-Schools' Green Flag.
