Welcome to Southam Primary School!


Respect           Responsible       Ready 


On behalf of all the staff, governors, helpers, parents and children I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and thank you for entrusting your child’s education with us, this is a responsibility that we take very seriously.


I believe that Southam Primary is a wonderful school to be a part of. This is because of our brilliant children, dedicated and enthusiastic staff and supportive parents. By working together we have established a school environment that is happy, exciting and inspires children to be the best that they can be.


Children are at the heart of our school. Everything we do is aimed towards helping our children develop as individuals and to equip them for life in the future. Our purpose is to give each individual child every opportunity and encouragement to achieve their full potential intellectually and physically; to develop emotional, social, spiritual and moral values; and to become a valuable citizen. This is supported by a highly talented and enthusiastic team of committed teachers and learning assistants, who work incredibly hard to provide the children with an exciting curriculum within a friendly environment in which each child feels happy and safe.


One of the many strengths of our school is the close relationship that we have between all members of our school community- staff, governors, parents and the wider community. For children to reach their full potential we need to work in partnership with you. Helping children to do their best is vital. It is important for us to work together so that we all understand what children are learning and are able to achieve.


Children are at the heart of everything that we do at Southam Primary School – we aim to give children an educational experience that they will always remember and will equip them to be lifelong learners.


We welcome you to our lovely school which we are incredibly proud of and are delighted that you have chosen to send your child to join us.

We achieve this by:

·         Providing an inspirational learning environment that stimulates curiosity, enjoyment, excitement and raises aspirations
