Snowsfields Primary School is a one form entry school taking 28 children into our mainstream classes each year. The school includes a nursery class with 30 full time and part time children and a Centre for children with Autistic Spectrum Condition. The school offers a Breakfast Club that starts at 7.30am and an After School Club that is open until 6pm.
The Tim Jewell Centre is based in 2 classrooms on the ground floor and also has its own playground and soft play and sensory room. Admission to the centre is arranged through SouthwarkÂs Special Needs Department. The children spend the majority of time in the Centre, but integration into the mainstream is encouraged.
Snowsfields is based in a fascinating part of London, close to London Bridge Station and GuyÂs Hospital. It is within easy walking distance of the Thames, Tate Modern, The Tower of London, ShakespeareÂs Globe, the Golden Hinde, the South Bank and the London Eye. The school and the children reflect the diversity and excitement of the area. We are extremely lucky to be sited so close to the City. This enables us to access considerable voluntary support from private companies and local colleges.
The school has a beautiful garden which has been developed over the years. Currently we are able to use it as an outside learning environment, with specific sensory areas for children with special educational needs. The playground is well resourced, with the additional benefit of a shared community kick-about pitch.
Our pupils are polite, kind, enthusiastic and love our school. They are ÂI canÂ children. They enjoy the range of activities we provide, both within the curriculum and after school. They participate fully in improving the school through the School Council and Eco Council.
The school is committed to promoting and safeguarding the welfare of children. We are fortunate to have a strong and proactive pastoral team who offer support to children and their families, removing barriers to learning and improving life opportunities.
