GLF Schools

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Springfield Primary School’s website; I hope that you find it informative, learning more about our vibrant school.

Springfield Primary School provides an exceptional learning environment where all of our pupils aim high and achieve excellence. What defines our ethos is the Springfield Way, in which:

-  Pupils are kind, respectful and inspired learners.
-  Staff are dedicated, nurturing and exceptional practitioners.
-  Parents are positive, collaborative and committed to children’s learning.

A culture of high aspiration is the central premise of the Springfield Way, ensuring that children have a platform in realising excellence.  The vehicle for this is a broad and balanced curriculum in which children academically flourish and emotionally thrive. The Springfield 7 Curriculum is designed to best to support all children.

Seven strands embody the curriculum and this ensures the quality of education, which is underpinned by an unfaltering commitment to inclusion.

The Springfield Curriculum:
-  Mathematics: Teaching for Mastery
-  English: reading and writing
-  Foundation subjects
-  Inclusion
-  Pupil well-being
-  Extra-curricular

The well-being of children is at the core of all school decisions, nurturing pupils as they develop: kindness, resilience, confidence and a sense of responsibility for themselves and others.

Our beautiful grounds and excellent facilities afford children a wealth of new learning experiences, including an array of extra-curricular activities to develop more broadly their skills and wider interests.

We know the positive benefits of outdoor learning for children and this year have opened our new Forest School, alongside our onsite allotment.  Children from all year groups access this provision.

Springfield Primary School is an academy within the multi-academy trust, GLF. In this we work closely with other primary and secondary schools sharing outstanding practice, expertise and resources.

Our school sits at the heart of the local community. It works in positive partnership with families and community members, collaboratively creating the best possible climate for learning.

We are immensely proud of our school and welcome new families to meet our children and dedicated team of teachers and support staff. If you would like to visit us in person to arrange a tour, please contact our school office.

We look forward to meeting with you and your child, as you begin your journey with us.
