Outstandingly Happy

Here at Southill we are extremely proud of our Outstandingly Happy status, awarded to us in June 2019 in recognition of our positive thinking and wellbeing focus throughout the school.

As part of an ambitious and revolutionary project in collaboration with The Art of Brilliance, we embraced the challenge of implementing many positive thinking strategies and techniques led by our children, which not only help us with our learning but most importantly boost our confidence, self-esteem and general wellbeing.  As a result this naturally boosts happiness!

Being so passionate about positive thinking, we have included the 2%er award within our Celebration Assembly each week, awarded to children who choose to be positive every day.  Having a positive attitude really makes a difference.
Our GIGANTIC banner outside school represents the continuous stream of positive thinking and behaviour that we adopt, ‘Outstandingly Happy’ is a status that will stay with us and has become an important element to the ethos of our school.
