Southill School was opened in October 1973. It was designed as three units and a reception classroom opening on to a central hall. Each unit has two traditional teaching areas. Between the teaching areas is a "practical" area where children from both classes can paint, design, make models, do woodwork, clay work, needlework, make music and listen to stories, according to the timetable rota. Each classroom also has its own entrance, toilets and coat trolleys. The Reception Class has its own self-contained classroom.
The school curriculum consists of eleven different subjects, as follows.
- Design and Tech
Before a child starts school we invite parents / guardians into school to meet the Infant Staff and exchange information. Following this visit children and a parent / guardian are invited to come to Southill PIP Club ( Pre Infant Programme Club ). This is to enable parents and children to familiarise themselves with the staff, the other children and the building. The PIP Club is held in the Reception Classroom on Friday afternoons for a number of weeks preceding the term in which the child starts school officially.
Children are admitted to school on the following basis and providing conditions allow:
5th Birthday between 1st September to 31st August - child commences part-time from September ( mornings only ). Child commences full time from January.
When children come to us from other schools, we aim to introduce them to their class, teacher and unit before starting so that we are not strangers to them when they finally arrive. Please feel free to arrange a preliminary visit.
