MESSAGE FROM MR GROVER
Welcome to Springfield Primary School’s website. We hope that you find everything you need to get a good feel for our school and what we do on a daily basis to ensure that the education and care that our children receive is of the highest quality.
Our school is on a very exciting journey. I am excited to have been asked to work with a number of education professionals whose task is to transform our school in to a high performing 21st century Primary school. It is a great privilege to work with the governors, staff, students and parents of Springfield Primary School and help them to realise this vision.
We enjoy an extremely important partnership with Moor Green Academy, which is part of REACH 2 Multi-Academy Trust. Nicola Fisher, Executive Headteacher from Moor Green Academy, with the assistance of outstanding staff expertise at Moor Green and from across the Trust, is providing our school with specialist leadership and teaching support.
The future for Springfield Primary School and our children is incredibly bright. We intend to provide our children with an education that will lay the foundations for successful learning and development throughout their school career and in later life. Within an environment that values people, hard-work, resilience, humility and respect, we intend our students to leave us fully prepared for their next adventure. To achieve this, we expect the very highest of standards in everything we do. It is my expectation therefore, that staff and students are the very best that they can be, every single day.
I hope you enjoy our website and that the information you find inspires you to find out more. I look forward to meeting you and possibly working with you in the future.
Mr R. Grover
Interim Head Teacher
At Springfield Primary School we aim to be an ambitious, successful, innovative and dynamic school where positive change and advancement is welcomed, valued and sought after. We are a school that is built upon sound educational values, with an ethos that allows and expects every single member of the school community to thrive and achieve excellence, whilst enjoying their learning and personal development.
The education that we provide our children will cater for their academic, moral, physical and spiritual development, which in our opinion are instrumental in supporting and nurturing a child’s whole education. With these aspects forever at the heart of their curriculum and experiences, our young people will gain the knowledge, skills, resilience, aspirations and moral purpose to make a significant and valued contribution to our immediate and wider global society.
It is our job to help the young people in our charge overcome any barriers they may encounter, so that they are inspired to continue on a life long journey of learning, seeking out and embracing new experiences and challenges. Our pupils will leave us fully prepared for the future challenges they will face, having successfully learnt to work with and care for each other, whilst constantly striving to be the very best that they can be in everything they do.’
Springfield Primary School will receive a Pupil Premium grant allocation of £240,240 for the 2017/18 financial year. This is based on 182 pupils who attend our school and have been identified as meeting the criteria for additional funding.
Due to the improvement journey that our school is currently on, new leaders are engaged in assessing the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school and the extent to which these needs are being met. 2016/17 Key Stage 2 data would suggest that the performance of the school and therefore the performance of disadvantaged students is not good enough. It would be safe to assume therefore that there are significant improvements needed to ensure that the school is closing any achievement gap between these students and their peers. Our aim is to ensure that there is no achievement gap between Pupil Premium students and Non Pupil Premium students.
Once we have identified the barriers to learning we will decide on the best strategies that we can employ. Action research and case studies that have highlighted successful strategies and measurable impact within similar contexts will be considered. It is our intention that our strategy will be in place by 1st November 2017, after consultation and review has taken place with the Interim Executive Board.
The date of the next review of the school’s pupil premium strategy will then take place in September 2018.
PE and Sport Premium:
Springfield Primary School received a PE and Sport Premium grant allocation of £10,705 for the 2016/17 financial year. We are aware that this year we may have a slight increase in funding, which is yet to be confirmed.
Sports Premium funding will be used to provide our students with:
Weekly swimming lessons in Year 4, including transport to and from the venue and professional swimming teaching.
Provision of competitive sports participation through the Schools Games movement and after school fixtures. This will also include transport to and from any off site venues
Specialist sports coaching in PE lessons for each Year group, at least once a week. This coaching will include copies of planning so that teaching staff can observe and interact with the lessons and build up a bank of resources and experience that will allow them to become more proficient in delivering high quality PE lessons, in the event that any funding is stopped in the future.

Why choose us
Pupils behave well. They are polite and usually attentive in lessons. In most lessons, pupils discuss and share ideas and this is improving their confidence to speak and listen to other pupils.
