Pupils across school had a wonderful time on World Book Day last week! Different classes enjoyed sharing their favourite books with each other and lots of fun was had on our 'sensory bear hunt'.  Some pupils from our semi-formal and formal classes even wrote their own versions of the story! What a fantastic day - thank you to everyone who celebrated reading with us!

I was delighted to welcome Gary from Smart Arts to school on Tuesday, where he made a  generous donation on behalf of Smart Arts amounting to £2000. We are so grateful to Smart Arts who support Springwater each year following their Pantomime season. They are continually generous and we welcome their partnership with us. The funds they have presented to school will be split between Youth Club and The Big Build!

Thank you Smart Arts from all of here at Springwater!

Students attended Morrisons for an hour of bag packing on Wednesday 6th March and did not want to leave! We had a really good hour and the students really engaged with helping customers. There were lots of positive comments from shoppers about our wonderful students. Thank you to all who took part; the students, the wonderful community of Starbeck that supported us this morning and to the Morrisons team for welcoming us and allowing us this opportunity.

As part of their Business Enterprise work, some members of Kites class have been handing out free samples of their handmade dog biscuits for market research and quality control! They have had some great feedback so far and hope to have them ready to sell soon. Watch this space!
