Welcome to Southwold Primary School
Thank you for taking the time to visit our school website. Southwold Primary is a small, but growing school with pupils from 4 -11. We are at present in a collaboration with Barnby & North Cove Primary School, another small school near Beccles. We share the same Head Teacher and we work very closely together so that pupils and staff at both schools reap the benefits of collaborative working.
Aims and Values
We are a friendly and welcoming school, with a family atmosphere, strong community links and long standing traditions, which we strive to continue and develop.
We respect and show mutual care and consideration for all members of the school community, (staff pupils, parents, governors and visitors) . We value co-operation as the best way to achieve our goals.
We aim to encourage children to work to the best of their ability, to reach the highest standards in all that they do.We work together to build self-esteem, to make the most of everyone's talents and to value each others' opinions.We believe in opportunties for all.
We aim to provide a stimulating and interesting learning environment, both within the school and outdoors. We aim to foster an appreciation for our natural environment and the world around us.
We work together to achieve a wide curriculum, which stimulates a love of learning, experience and discovery and which provides skills for the future.

Pupil Premium funding


Pupil premium is a funding pot from the Government which is issued to schools to help provide for disadvantaged children, to ensure that they make the best progress they can.  It was introduced during 2012.  From September 2012 schools are required to issue a statement on how this is used on their website.

In 2012-13 the school received £7200 in Pupil Premium funding.

This money was used to help provide for the following initiatives:-

Spent on


Training for Speech and language support

After attending the training the staff were able to help children to develop their communication skills and be able to access the curriculum. Elklan speech and language course has led to the teaching of specific vocabulary, listening and information retrieval skills.


Intervention in small groups

We have invested in quality training for our Teaching Assistants so that they are highly skilled and confident in providing personalised programmes which enable pupils to overcome barriers to learning.  Interventions are closely monitored and tailored to the needs of the pupils.


One to One Tuition with a Teacher

By employing a teacher for one-to-one tuition we are able to help children reach their full potential in Numeracy and Literacy.  The children are taught in the way that suits them as well as teaching specific skills, pupils are then able to make accelerated progress.


Teaching Assistant support

For those pupil premium pupils on the special needs register the learning support assistant is able to work on the targets on each child’s Individual Education Programme.


Access to wider opportunities

Some pupil premium money is used to support families to access extra-curricular activities such as music lessons and taking part in residential trips.


Additional Resources

Resources were purchased using pupil premium funding for intervention groups such as, finger gym, Lego therapy, gym trail etc.
