Welcome to Springwater School!

June 2nd 2020: You can view the revised Government guidance for parents and carers by following these links https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/closure-of-educational-settings-information-for-parents-and-carers/closure-of-educational-settings-information-for-parents-and-carers and here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/closure-of-educational-settings-information-for-parents-and-carers/reopening-schools-and-other-educational-settings-from-1-june

 

June 1st 2020: We have been contacting all families by telephone over the last few weeks following the Government announcments about the wider opening of schools. Springwater has remained open to about ten percent of pupils throughout the school closure period and during the holiday periods. Last week we introduced even stricter social distancing and small 'bubble' classes to minimise mixing between staff and pupils. This week we are establishing this even further, with the same few pupils so that we can practice arrival, departure, lunches, play and one way systems into and out of classrooms. Once established we will be considering the introduction of a very few extra pupils into the established bubbles. Additional pupils can only be introduced following a health risk assessment and this can only be done at weekly intervals.  This is essential to ensure that what we introduce is both sustainable and safe for all concerned. 

If you indicated, during our phone contact that you require a school place this half term we will be in contact with you by email, so that you have some clarity about when that is likely to be. The emails about this will be sent over the course of this week. Due to the capacity of some of our smaller rooms and the need to social distance we will be unable to offer every pupil a place at this time. 

A copy of the Risk Assessment for the wider opening of school (2nd June 2020) can be found in the Parents & Carers tab under Important Information

"Parents and carers are really pleased with the school. Their children are happy and are getting on well. One parent echoed the feelings of others, saying: ‘I cannot praise highly enough the way that Springwater supports, not only my child but myself as well, to help her cope with the challenges she faces every day.’"
