Headteacher's Welcome from Mrs Mathews
Welcome to Southwood School's Website. It is very new and we hope you will find it easy to find everything you need here.
As of September 2020, the world is a very different place because of the Coronavirus and the start of term will not be the same as any before. However, we want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to help keep the children and staff at Southwood as safe as we can. There is a dedicated page in the Parent and Carer Information section of the website about what we are doing at school, but please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions, or if you'd like to talk through your concerns.
Southwood is a Junior school, for children in Year 3 to Year 6, placed close to Central Milton Keynes and is within walking distance of many lovely outdoor spaces such as Linford Wood and Campbell Park, as well as the Shopping Centre itself. At Southwood, we pride ourselves on academic achievement and also sporting achievement, as well as the development of children as individuals. Our four values of Respect, Responsibility, Reflection and Resilience underpin everything we do and help our children to grow into independent, considerate pupils who strive for the best.
We have a brilliant staff team who know our children extremely well and we all work closely across the school to ensure all children are kept safe, engaged well with their learning and given academic or emotional support when needed. We usually welcome parents and carers into school regularly to see performances and their child's work and although this may be a little different this year, we will continue to share the learning and achievements of our pupils with you in creative ways!
