Message From The Head

Head Teacher

Welcome back... The reading for pleasure breakfast lived up to its name… it was an absolute pleasure to see parents, carers, teachers and children reading together. Thank you for your support. Rolo our reading dog popped in to see us too and Year 5 were delighted to read with him. Our history skill days have been successful with all the children being able to talk about different periods of history… Victorians, Stone Age, Romans, Egyptians, local history have all been part of our study skills session. Next half term it is our geography deep dive studies. So exciting! An exciting lunch-time picnic showed that if we don’t have something Springbank can make it! We loved the snow machine whilst we were dancing in our outside disco. The ancient Egyptian banquet and myth film was enjoyed by all. A taste of the past… and food many of us haven’t tasted before. Science week was a busy and successful learning week. The Phiz Lab was buzzing with learning and investigating. The children’s awe and wonder made the learning alive. Woodthorpe Infants also enjoyed their science – it was a joy to share our Phiz Lab with another school. A computing day saw algorithms, debugging using beebots, computer networks and systems being practised and learnt by all classes. Practising our computing skills is a next school focus. To end the half-term it was an absolute pleasure to welcome the memory café into our school yesterday for coffee and cake. Children performed on piano, recorders and sang some poignant songs. The year 6 children mingled with the memory café members and enjoyed chatting with all from young to old. A cheque for £ 796.10p was given to support the activities for the memory café. A great achievement made possible through selling our school Christmas single. We finished the session by singing our last single “Poppies of Red”. This has been entered into the Never Such Innocence Competition which they had 12,000 entries worldwide. Current feedback is that it is a powerful piece of work and they would love to hear it performed live. Watch this space. 

With Warm Wishes, Julie Vaccari



In the last week I have attended a Year 1 Science Day activity where the children carried out an experiment to see which materials were the most absorbent and which materials did not absorb any water. It was wonderful to see the enthusiasm that this experiment generated.

As part of my responsibility as Chair of Finance I also reviewed the school budget and had a meeting with Miss Keetch to discuss how we are spending the Sports Premium money. It was good to hear that Springbank is one of only two schools in Broxtowe that have received the Platinum award for School Games...........Well done.

We are a school that is committed to providing a high standard of education for every pupil. We pursue excellence at every opportunity.

Springbank Primary is a place where ALL of our children, staff and school community will be safe, happy and cared for. Our curriculum offers skills and enrichment so that EVERY child is able to gain the foundations for a quality future life and a love for life long learning.

Our motto "Caring, Happy, Healthy, Sporty, Scientific" sets out our mission for the school.

This extends beyond the school day to include a number of extra-curricular activities before and after school. We believe learning isn't restricted to the classroom and that every child who comes to Springbank Primary School has an entitlement to a range of visits and experiences that enrich and enliven the curriculum.  Outdoor learning, creative arts and being eco-friendly all form part of our teaching and learning programme.

Inviting visitors into school brings our children's learning to life. We are all learners in school and staff continue to learn too, finding out about the latest developments in education, theory and practice, keeping their skills and knowledge up to date or developing their own potential through degree or master's degree courses.
