Head Teacher's Welcome

Dear Visitor,

We wish you a very warm welcome to the Springfield Primary School website and feel sure that by using the site you will get an idea of our vision, aims and of the values we believe in.

All schools have their own unique identity and we believe that at Springfield Primary School, we have created a friendly, inclusive, caring and supportive environment that encourages all our pupils to fully learn and develop.  We are a busy and friendly two form entry primary school with a nursery onsite, with lots going on and this website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.

At Springfield our care and ethos, is reflected in our children who are happy, safe and well motivated, which is reflected in by OFSTED "there are some important aspects of it that are outstanding, such as the extremely caring attitude of staff evident throughout the school."

Every child matters at Springfield and the staff fully utilise their expertise and skills to ensure we develop strengths, and support areas for development, This is done by extending the opportunities of our pupils both in the classroom and in a wide range of extra-curricular clubs, trips and activities.

We consider ourselves to be fortunate in having a strong and committed Governing Body who fully support the school in providing the best possible educational opportunities for all.

Whilst academic achievement is obviously important, we feel the children should have fun and enjoyment through a range of activities and events. With this in mind we provide many after school clubs and wrap around care from 7.30a.m-6.00p.m

We have strong links with our all our local primary and secondary schools, and also with Sandwell College.

We are in a TRUST with 4 other schools and several external partners including higher education establishments. All of these partnerships help us to provide an extended and rich educational experience for our pupils.

Our values are success, personal growth, respect and good relationships. Springfield has a lot to offer. We give the best and expect the best

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact us directly with any queries you may have.

Thank you for visiting!
Miss S Powis
