Discovering Potential

01484 504544

Our vision is to offer a safe nurturing school where we always see the best in people and believe in them. We celebrate difference, take great joy in our young people and seek to discover and develop their unique potential.

School Council

Allowing our pupils to have a voice is integral to our values.  We believe that this prepares them for life after school as a member of a community.

Our school council is made up of one pupil from each classroom.  Classes frequently have communication sessions where they make contributions or have a vote.  The school council representatives then feedback this information to the Head of Lower School/Assistant Headteacher Ruth in their fortnightly meetings.

During the 2016/17 academic year, this system was used for pupils to choose the school uniform that we use at Southgate today.  The school council played and active role in the high levels of staff recruitment as our school has expended in size.

This year, it was the decision of the school council to move fish and chips to Friday, and we are working through a number of school council priorities as the year progresses.  They would like to bring cycling to Southgate alongside school clubs and activities. 

There is a representative from each class on the School Council.  The representatives for 2018/2019 are:

Badger Class - Liam

Butterfly Class - TBC

Cedar Class - Harvey

Chestnut Class - George

Dragonfly Class - Alex

Fox Class - Charlotte
