School House System

Springfield School has recently renamed its houses, planned and delivered its first exciting event, Sports Week during the Autumn term. During Sports Week, children participated in extra fun sporting activities throughout the week in their newly allocated houses. Teachers were excited to introduce classes to sports or activities that they may not have much experience with before.


We were lucky to have the Barclays Men’s Premier League Cup and the Women’s Super League Cup visit the school, and children had the opportunity to have their photographs taken with them. Representatives from the Premier League team delivered a workshop to the children, detailing the history of the cups and their importance.

These include, a Carol Concert and each house choosing a charity to raise money for through events in the Spring term.

House Fun Run 

It was thrilling to see all the children dressed in their House colours today, whilst competing in our first House event of the year – The Springfield Fun Run. The children ran around a pre-determined course for a set period, aiming to complete as many laps as possible to earn points for their house team. We were proud of the great effort many made to complete multiple laps. Beech House won for the KS1/EYFS run; Beech House also won for the KS2 run; and the overall winners, of course were Beech House. All had fun and demonstrated a great team spirit when competing. Well done to our House Captains and Sports Leaders for running the event so efficiently. Great work Springfield!


The primary purpose of the House system is to create a sense of spirit and belonging across the school and allow pupils to mix with all year groups.

During spring one, Mrs Wilson, our House lead, led an arts and craft project, with finished designs going on display. Well done to our House leaders from Year 6 who helped with the organisation - they demonstrated good leadership skills and were positive role models to the younger children.
