Aims and Values

Our school has very clear aims and values which underpin everything that we do and every decision that we make.


Springmead Aims

We build our school life around giving our pupils the very best life opportunities through ensuring:

  • That children develop an understanding of what learning means and how they can learn things for themselves, so that they will be equipped for lifelong learning
  • Their families are engaged in the learning process and are involved
  • That the children experience a broad curriculum
  • That learning is high quality, and lessons are fun, with teachers making the best use of recent research to help them plan and deliver the best learning opportunities
  • They have the core skills and knowledge necessary to access secondary education successfully


Springmead Values

We expect children, staff, parents and governors to adopt the ‘Springmead Way’ of care, respect and self-control in everything that we do.  Our learning values underpin our daily life and curriculum, which are:

  1. Being brave and taking risks – learning happens when we take that important step
  2. Reflection – thinking about what worked and what to do differently next time
  3. Teamwork and collaboration – working together to achieve a shared aim
  4. Independence – owning learning and developing individuality
  5. Problem solving and exploring – being curious and bringing all knowledge together
  6. Creativity – resourcefulness, originality and innovation
