Welcome to Southway Primary School

A message from Mr Garlick, Executive Principal, and Miss Holland, Head of School


A very warm welcome to our school! We look forward to a year of continued progress where children learn lots of new facts, figures and skills, delivered through our exciting curriculum that is filled with adventure, trips, events and visitors that bring their learning alive!

We feel very fortunate to have such fantastic learning environments, both inside and out. They provide a vibrancy that help to capture children’s imaginations and, along with high quality teaching and learning support, encourages a thirst for learning that results in their progress in all year groups.

Our sponsor, United Learning, believe very much in ensuring ‘The Best in Everyone’ and we fully embrace this in our aspirations in ‘building brighter futures’. For more information on our sponsor, you may like to visit http://unitedlearning.org.uk where you can find information about the group’s vision, ethos and its schools and academies.

As always, if you need anything from us, do come and find us. All staff are outside the school every Friday at 3.00pm to support you or alternatively you can book an appointment via the school reception.

We wish all our children a very successful and enjoyable year!

Mr Garlick and Miss Holland
