Dear Parents and Carers,
On behalf of the Governors, Staff and Pupils may I warmly welcome you to Springfield School.
The Prospectus has been designed to help you find out about the school but we are aware that no booklet will give you all the information you may need. Please come and visit the school where you will be able to meet our staff and pupils, ask questions and see us at work. If a visit is not possible we will be happy to answer any questions over the telephone and, on request, provide any additional written information you may require.
At Springfield School we are committed to providing high quality education for all our pupils and helping them to develop the skills which will form the foundation for future learning. We strive to create within the school a happy, calm and purposeful atmosphere, as we believe this leads to effective learning.
Every pupil at Springfield is highly valued as an individual and as a member of our school community. All our pupils’ achievements are acknowledged, celebrated and shared with parents or carers.
We work closely with parents and carers and hope that if your child becomes a pupil at Springfield you will support us by becoming actively involved in your child's learning and the school community. Together we can achieve the very best for your son or daughter.
The word ‘parent’ is used in the Prospectus as an overall term, which includes all members of the pupil's family and primary carers.
Diane Finney Head of School
We have 7 school aims incorporating celebrating success, delivering a broad and balanced curriculum, keeping pupils safe to make positive progress, nurturing emotional development.
Our whole ethos is underpinned through engagement in education through tailored and personalised programmes of study.
The Manor Hall Academy Trust is a growing Multi Academy Trust. The strength of the Trust and its distinctive feature is that it is a Collaborative Educational Trust between Special Schools who meet a range of needs. Schools, working together with the same values creating secure foundations for the future.
Historically, the special school sector has been a strength in Staffordshire. This was in no small part down to how special schools worked together in collaboration. We believe this strength is something we cannot lose and that special schools share common problems and issues which require similar solutions. In the future, the growth of the Manor Hall Trust and its Special School membership can only be to the benefit of the individual schools and most importantly the children and young adults. We also recognise that historic boundaries are gradually disappearing and we are open to working with schools across the West Midlands.
