To the right is our STARFISH, showing the values important to everyone in school.

Springbank 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.

Our commitment to excellence in education and learning and our partnership with parents and the local community 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 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, keeping up with 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.
