Headteacher – Springhill Primary Academy

REAch2 Academy Trust

Springhill’s Primary Academy is a thriving school community that provides first class learning and enrichment opportunities for all children right through from Nursery to Year 6.

All of the team at Springhill work towards nurturing independent children who can ‘reach high’ to attain personal and academic goals and who are equipped with lifelong skills for successful futures.

This nurturing approach is achieved by:
• Providing a safe, happy school in which pastoral care is given a high priority by dedicated staff;
• Expecting and promoting the highest standards of behaviour and respect towards one another, reflected in our value of being courteous;
• Giving children an excellent, secure start to their school experience;
• Teaching children how to keep themselves safe and healthy;
• Establishing positive relationships with parents and carers;
• Developing a strong sense of community and pride, with a welcoming “family feel” to the school;

Combined with this nurturing approach, all children at Springhill are encouraged to excel by:
• Striving for the highest possible standards of achievement through the provision of an engaging and enriching creative curriculum, reflected in our value of high-achieving;
• Being inclusive and committed to providing for individual children’s needs;
• Developing ‘go-getters’ who are enthusiastic about their learning;
• Teaching our children to be aspirational about their own futures and preparing them to become responsible global citizens;
• Ensuring that staff are given opportunities to continue their own learning and to share quality practice with other professionals.
