I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be the headteacher of such an amazing school! One lap of our building brings you into contact with such a broad and diverse range of young people; they are all unique, very important, and at the centre of everything we do. We pride ourselves on being a highly inclusive school where everybody is equal.
Our staff are both dedicated and highly skilled and contribute to a very nurturing environment where the pupils can thrive. Relationships in our school are a strength, and visitors comment on the very calm and warm environment.
The pupils who attend Southgate all have complex needs, are aged between 4 and 16, and have an Education, Health and Care Plan. We are a popular school and therefore our places are in high demand. Ofsted confirmed that we are a ‘Good’ school when they last inspected in November 2018.
We continue to strive to become the best provision we can be for our pupils and their families, aiming to become a highly specialist special school in all areas. To support this, we are committed to working with a full range of external agencies and professionals, the wider community and partner schools. Southgate School is highly committed to the safeguarding of children.
I hope our website provides you with the information you need about Southgate, our provision and offer. If there is anything else you need, please do not hesitate to contact us.
