Head of School’s Message

I am delighted to introduce this website which I hope provides you with an insight into all that makes Springwell such a special place to learn.

Here at Springwell we strive to provide the best possible care and education that we can in both of our academies. Unconditional Positive Regard underpins the work we all do here and our learning community believes in creating chances for all students. Our strong tradition of success is built on a firm foundation of strong pastoral care and we ensure a climate for learning which is well ordered, safe, calm and focused on positive, trusting relationships.

We have a hugely talented and committed staff team, with a range of well qualified and dedicated professionals to make sure that our curriculum, guidance, care and support meets the different needs of every young person. Our aim is for all of our students to achieve their potential and to prepare them for further education, employment and to participate in society as respectful and responsible citizens. We pride ourselves on being creative, innovative and having high expectations of all of our young people.

We take great pleasure in building very close, open and positive relationships with parents and carers and expect them to be fully involved in supporting the learning of their child. We also realise that at times they will need our support too. We work closely with other agencies and schools to make sure we do all we can to make learning and life the best it possibly can be at Springwell.

We work with our young people in a collaborative and orderly atmosphere with kindness and trust at the heart. This gives our learners a sense of belonging and a pride in our school and in themselves. Above all, we are committed to working together as a team. We believe that by working together we can ensure opportunity and success for everyone. Every young person has unlimited potential and together we can make sure that this potential is fulfilled and helps them fully realise their potential.

Exploring this website will give you a clear idea of the culture and ethos of our school but please contact us if you need to find out more.
