We believe that children should enjoy coming to school and it is our aim that every child who comes to Springfield Primary School should feel that he or she is becoming part of a special community. It is our fundamental belief that a school should reflect a sense of partnership, understanding and awareness that is shared by staff, governors, parents, the community and, of course, the children themselves.
We hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you to share this process. We feel it is important that school life should extend beyond the classroom to encompass sport, links with the community, spiritual, moral, cultural and social development, with the aim of developing a well-rounded individual.
We look forward to welcoming your child to our school and with your support we will endeavour to provide a first class education in the all-important years that lie ahead.
We aim to develop a safe, secure and caring community where each child`s happiness is of great importance, there are high expectations of good behaviour and where each child can develop positive and co-operative relationships.
We aim to ensure that every learner fulfils their potential.
Through a process of regular review and evaluation, we aim to have high academic standards achieved through a stimulating curriculum and teaching that is targeted to children’s needs.
We aim to promote and celebrate success, thereby raising the confidence, enthusiasm, motivation and self-esteem of all, encouraging an appreciation of achievement in themselves and others.
We aim to develop the whole child through:
· the provision of a broad and balanced curriculum
· sporting opportunities, including sport for all and competitive sport
· art, drama and music opportunities both within school and through visits,
visitors and extra curricular provision
· assemblies and lessons which encourage children to think through important
social, moral, spiritual and cultural issues
· the provision of a stimulating environment, respected by the whole school
Our aims are achieved through the positive involvement of children, parents,
staff, governors and the wider community.
The school provides a balanced curriculum and is constantly concerned with the quality and learning of each child. The curriculum is delivered through a combination of stimulating topic and themed curriculum days as well as timetabled subjects.
Within each class a number of tasks will be offered to groups organised by ability. This work will be differentiated to match the ability of these groups, to enable them to have access to the National Curriculum at the appropriate level. Each teacher has responsibility for one or two curriculum areas and a class may at times be taught by the subject specialist rather than their class teacher.
We also recognise the value of a positive working atmosphere within the school in which the achievements of all children are applauded and celebrated through class assemblies, thoughtful displays of work, as well as children’s individual portfolios which are shared with parents on a termly basis.
