Welcome to Garfield Primary School.

Recent Events at Garfield Primary School.

As Head15-10-08-karen-khwaja-phototeacher, I would like to warmly welcome you to Garfield Primary School.

I am delighted you have chosen to find out more about us. I hope you find our website informative and that it also gives you a true flavour of our friendly and ambitious school. I am regularly at the school gates in the morning (come rain or shine) so that I can meet informally with parents and gain your views. Parent partnership is very important to us at Garfield.

We are a vibrant, two form entry primary school in New Southgate and are welcoming more pupils than ever to join us. So much so, that we are now expanding to be a 3 form entry school. Our recent Ofsted Inspection in November 2014 judged us as a ‘good’ school in all categories. We are now well on our journey to becoming ‘outstanding’.

Our Year 6 SATs results in 2015 continued to show very high attainment and we were above national standards in all subjects. This includes being above national for our more able pupils (achieving Level 6). This year we were delighted to be in the top 6% of all schools nationally for our progress which was outstanding progress.

We are at a very exciting time in our history as we are building a brand new school within our current school grounds (on the adjoining field). We plan to move into our new school building in the New Year. Our pupils, staff, parents and governors will all play an important part in shaping our new school and we are determined that it will be seen as a beacon of excellence and at the very heart of the local community.

We are confident that our vision for our new school building will be translated into a reality and be a source of inspiration for all of our school community.

As we undergo this dramatic transformation, we continue our uncompromising commitment to ensuring all of our pupils receive a good – outstanding education. Our vision and values are integral to all we do at Garfield. Please read them to understand what we stand for.

Prospective parents are more than welcome to visit the school. I conduct tours regularly and these can be arranged by contacting the school office. Dates are regularly scheduled and are on the website.

I look forward to working with you.
