We are a well staffed school in order to ensure that our pupils have the opportunity to access quality first teaching, and all pupils are able to make excellent progress during their time with us at Southbury.

We have a Teaching Assistant in each class to further support the learning of our pupils, and we also have additional teachers so that Maths lessons across the school are taught in smaller and more targeted groups.

Our staff work exceptionally hard and are fully dedicated to ensuring that our pupils here at Southbury leave us as well-rounded individuals, ready for Secondary School.
