Dear Parents / Carers,
If you have concerns about your child’s hearing you can book them in to one of our hearing screening clinics. The screening will be carried out by trained members of our school nursing team. If your child is identified as having a hearing problem they will be referred to the City of Coventry Health Centre for a further hearing test.
Signs of a possible hearing problem can include:
Inattentiveness or poor concentration
- Not responding when their name is called
- Talking loudly and listening to the television at a high volume
- Difficulty pinpointing where a sound is coming from
- Mispronouncing words
- A change in their progress at school
If you’re child has problems with any of these and you wish your child’s hearing to be screened then please contact your school nurse team. You can either call (asking for the School Nursing team) on 01926 495321 EXT: 7417 or send an email to email@example.com, stating your child’s name, date of birth and school.

Dear Parents / Carers,
We have all had a wonderful first week back at Southfields School and all of the children have settled in really well to the school routines and their learning.

A change to the self-isolation period from 14 to 10 days has been announced, starting today.
People who test positive should continue to self-isolate for 10 days from onset of symptoms or 10 days from point of taking a positive test if asymptomatic.
Parents must inform the school if your child is ill and we recommend that if a child has any Covid symptoms that they get a test. For speed and efficiency book a drive in or walk in test, you will get results within 24hours. Speak to our Pastoral team if you need help with this. To protect the school community please inform the school of the results of the test immediately as it may affect others in school. If someone in your family tests positive the rest of the family members must isolate for 10 days. If your child tests positive please inform the school immediately via our email address firstname.lastname@example.org
Southfields School now uses an online payment system called SIMS Pay which you can use to pay for school meals, school trips and school uniform. SIMS Pay is a secure and easy way to make payments to school and reduces the need to handle cash. If you have not already registered to use this system please ask the school office for a Registration Invitation. All we need from you is your email address.
