The Primary First Trust are very pleased that Springhead Park Primary School will open its doors for the first time in September 2020, offering a holistic approach to primary education for the local community. Springhead Park Primary will be an empowering place of learning where children are taught to the highest of academic standards, and love to learn- we will educate the whole child: their brain, their heart, their talents and their outlook. We will achieve this through a real breadth and richness of our everyday curriculum, ensuring that every child has an entitlement to the whole curriculum in order to find their individual talents and passions.

To meet this aim, there are 4 cornerstones on which we will build our educational culture:

• Academic success: to succeed in life, we will ensure that our children have the basic skills to access the world around them and understand how they can contribute to it.

• Experiential, Enquiry-Led Learning: we will create circumstances whereby children can explore problems, current issues and themes, then create their own innovative solutions. In this way we will develop our pupil’s knowledge, curiosity, resilience and creative problem-solving skills.

• Learning beyond the classroom: children will be inspired by heritage sites, cultural opportunities, the arts, sporting opportunities and make efforts to engage in issues that will affect their communities and the future.

• Complimentary technology: children will have regular access to technology to help them access their learning, develop creative solutions and communicate their thoughts, ideas and creations across the entire curriculum. 

As a newly opening school, Springhead Park can offer you the chance to contribute to establishing this holistic, creative and outward facing culture from the very beginning of the journey.
