Springfield Primary Curriculum

Our Curriculum

'Tell me and I'll forget: show me and I may remember; involve me and I will understand.'

Learning and achievement drives everything that we do at Springfield Primary School. Our role, in partnership with parents, is to provide an exciting and purposeful curriculum which builds the foundations for a successful education, to enable each child to discover the joy of learning, to help them to fulfil every aspect of their potential and to encourage their growth into effective citizens, ready to play their part in the world and their community.

We want all our children to experience success and enjoy their learning when at school. We aim to achieve this through high standards of teaching within a happy, structured and caring environment. While following the National Curriculum, we ensure our children enjoy their learning through encouraging creativity. Through a rich and engaging curriculum, we motivate our learners to accumulate skills for life: children are encouraged to learn through enquiry.
