A little more about us........
Context of the school
The South View Federation is situated close to the centre of Basingstoke in Hampshire and has approximately 240 pupils on roll in the Infant and Nursery School and 230 pupils on roll in the Junior School.
Both schools have a resourced provision for pupils with speech, language and communication needs, which is run by the school. The proportions of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, supported through SEN Support or with a statement of special educational needs or Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) above average.
Although the majority of our pupils are from White British back-grounds, 15.7% of our pupils speak English as an additional language.
The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional government funding for looked after children, pupils eligible for free school meals and children of service families, is well above average.
Both schools run a breakfast club and also provide a range of after-school activities for our pupils.
Our aim is to provide an interesting and exciting curriculum motivating the children to become interested, well rounded young people who have a love of enquiry, learning and life.
In order for this to happen we welcome parents and carers to work with us in partnership and to become fully involved in their child’s journey of discovery.
The school is dedicated to continually improving the educational experiences offered through enlivening the curriculum, maintaining high standards and improving facilities.
We have a large playing field surrounded by bushes and gardens. This provides the children with plenty of opportunities to study nature first hand as well as providing space for a football pitch and in the summer months, athletic tracks.
We encourage the children to take care of the grounds and we hope they will learn to take pride in their surroundings.
We have spacious playgrounds with markings for various games and activities as well as an outside classroom.
