Springfield Primary School is situated on a large spacious site on Barton Road, Tilehurst. Opened in 1969 (with just 38 children on roll), Springfield has grown into a thriving school with a reputation for excellence. We currently have 336 pupils on roll, from Nursery (aged 3)  to Year 6. (aged 11). Parents can apply for a place in our Nursery class for their children from age 2 .

As a school we aim to encourage curiosity, interest and enquiry, encouraging a lifelong love of learning. The school motto is 'Born Curious, Stay Curious'. 

The school is housed in a singular building with direct access to spacious outside areas. Our extensive school grounds include a wooded environmental area, a ‘fairy den’, pond, a running track, a large field, play equipment and the EYFS ‘Monkey Do’ copse. The copse area includes a fire pit which is used regularly for cooking and a range of wooden play equipment for imaginative play and the development of gross motor skills. We incorporate forest school principals into our teaching and learning and every pupil has access to all areas of the school environment. 

We have fully resourced and highly stimulating Nursery and Reception classes for our younger children, with access to a well-equipped outdoor learning environment. The EYFS outdoor area also includes a home for our school chickens.

Children transition from the Foundation Stage into Key Stage 1 which is also bright and engaging, with lots of resources. From Year 2, children move into Key Stage 2 where we continue to prepare and equip them to meet future challenges. We work alongside Little Heath and other local secondary schools to ensure all of our children are well prepared for the next stage of their education at Key Stage 3.
