Southfields Primary School

Lower School



Welcome to Lower School!

Lower school is an exciting place to be! The children are no longer the youngest in the school and they have had their first years at Southfields. They are already well-equipped for life-long learning with the excellent foundations set out in Early Years. 

In Year 1, children will become more independent learners and explore the curriculum through exciting learning opportunities. 

In Year 2, children will be the eldest in Key Stage One and this is something the children relish. They become role models to the younger children. They demonstrate independence, good learning behaviours and they are encouraged to be inquisitive about the world around them and their learning.


Southfields has amazing facilities and staff who inspire children every day!

With many of us at Southfields Primary being working parents, we fully appreciate the pressures of modern day living and in particular the need to communicate at short notice.  Whilst we will always have a member of the Year 1 & 2 team available to speak to and pass messages on to in the morning, we urge all parents to ensure they are set up with Class Dojo.  We find that this is the most effective form of communication between parents and teachers alike. If you are unsure of how to set this up or use the app, please don’t hesitate to talk to your child’s class teacher who will be more than happy to help.
