About Our School
Aims of the School
- Spring Grove is a caring school where we aim to make everyone feel happy, secure and valued. Learning is viewed as a partnership between school and home, within which teachers, parents and children have their own valuable part to play. The school promotes this partnership through a range of community links and family learning opportunities.
- We treat all children as individuals, acknowledging their background, experiences, interests and abilities. Children learn to develop their own strengths, interests and social skills, alongside the skills and knowledge within the EYFS, the National Curriculum the school’s Creative Curriculum. We encourage independent and lifelong learning.
- Children are challenged and encouraged to achieve their very best, having equal access to a broad and balanced curriculum. We encourage a creative approach to learning and help pupils to develop lively, enquiring minds, the ability to question and argue rationally and to apply themselves to tasks and physical skills.
- We aim to equip our children with skills and knowledge to enable them to become valued members of their local and wider community who have a true respect for themselves, each other and the environment. We emphasise the importance of teaching social skills and positive communication, alongside developing an awareness of issues relating to local and global sustainability for citizens of the future.
- We aim to communicate and work effectively in partnership with all stakeholders
- We aim to maintain high standards of work, high expectations of ourselves and others and a professional commitment, enabling us to create a reflective and forward thinking school.
- We aim to work in partnership with other schools, departments and settings to maximise the potential for success as we learn and gain support and advice from others
At Spring Grove Primary School the health, safety and well-being of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils.
We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Child Protection, and children are made aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of physical/emotional harm or neglect and are required to report these to the Named Safeguarding Lead.
The procedures which we follow have been laid down by the LA Safeguarding Team and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this, for the safety of all. On rare occasions our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies. We will ensure that all concerns are discussed with parent/carers first, before any referrals are made, unless we believe that such a move may be contrary to a child’s welfare.
The Named Safeguarding Leads are Ms M.Buckby (Headteacher) and Mrs B.Chohan (Head of School)
If you require any further information please contact the Headteacher.
If a member of staff has a child protection concern, the Head teacher is informed. If a pupil makes a disclosure about any form of abuse, the Head Teacher will inform Social Care, which the school is legally obliged to do. The Head Teacher is required by the Local Authority to report any suspected cases of child abuse. In such cases, we usually refer all information to Social Care, who will contact the Police Child Protection Team where necessary. The school will always aim to work closely with parents and carers.
