Message From The Head

Head Teacher

Over the past two or three weeks we have been extremely busy preparing the school not only for wider opening but also for the return to school for every child in September. We want to get it right for everyone. Some newspapers are stating that the return in September will be compulsory for every child. We await the DfE guidance and I will of course let you know immediately. We still haven’t got a full complement of staff as three members of staff are shielding and therefore our capacity to welcome more children back into school in some year groups has been restricted but we have tried our very best for all of you. Our key focus for return between now and the end term (July 17th) therefore has to stay as places for children of key workers and those with a social worker. If your employment status has changed just pick up the phone and let us know. We are nearly ready for the full return to school in September. Our learning bubbles have all been designed and created. We stay alert to the fact that COVID-19 is still in general circulation and we have COVID-19 safety checks twice a day to ensure Springbank remains a safe place for children and the staff to be. There have been no positive cases within our school population. Very pleasuring for all of us. We have decided that the best form of communication with parents/carers is a personal phone call from teachers or the teacher email facility. This will remain in place until the end of term and for the whole of the 2020-2021 academic year, as will our regular community visits. They have made such a difference.

In the next week we will be receiving the guidance from the DfE for the provision in September. Again, I will let you know straight away what we intend to do, and which teachers will be teaching which year group. As yet this is still unknown, but it will be approved at a governors’ meeting on July 14th. Do bear in mind though that COVID-19 will probably be with us over the autumn and spring terms next year and there may have to be flexibility of staff where illness or self-isolation occurs. We will also be finding out more about the summer food scheme intended for all those who are eligible for Free School Meals. We will be directed from the DfE on the way to claim the vouchers for the 6-week summer holiday period. Remember if you are eligible to apply for Free School Meals, please do so. If you contact Mrs Roper, she will help you if you want to do this. Unless the Local Authority have not approved your eligibility, we cannot apply for the vouchers for you. Also, it is vital you let us know if you have changed your email address. Again, Mrs Roper is there for you. We are also very busy creating Google Classrooms so that if you or your child is ill, or your family has to self-isolate there will be lessons filmed by the teachers that you can access from home. We are taking part in a very exciting two-year project that a grant from the DfE has enabled us to start using a team of school specialists. If you have only queries/ need support for anything just pick up the phone. We are always here for you and will help you and your family whenever we can. Take great care all of you and keep as safe as you can.

With Warm Wishes… Julie Vaccari

Welcome To Springbank Primary School


Springbank Primary is a place where all of our children and staff will have the opportunity to excel.

Everyone will be safe, happy and cared for.

Our curriculum and values will inspire everyone in the school family to be motivated and curious learners and offer core skills, knowledge and enrichment to enable all to gain the foundations for a quality future and a love for life-long learning. 

To the right is our STARFISH which are our values for our school.

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. We see ourselves at the heart of the local community, in a partnership with parents and carers, offering excellence in education and helping the children to learn the core learning skills they will need for their future.

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.

If you would like your child to attend Springbank Primary School, please contact the Nottinghamshire County Council Admissions Office using the following link   School Admissions
