Coronovirus (Covid19) Statement

11th January 2021

At Springmead School we always have the safety and welfare of our whole school community at the heart of what we do.

In the light of the UK Government’s announcement, Springmead School has moved to a largely online method of delivering teaching and learning for the Spring Term. Please see details of how we are currently operating below:

Main School (Reception to Year 6)

We will be offering a full programme of online teaching and learning, and will be expecting all pupils to complete work remotely. During term time, teachers will be online daily following their usual timetables with their classes and are able to respond to pupils’ needs. Children are provided with videoed lessons, set, differentiated work to complete and return to their teacher for marking and feedback the same day. A daily Zoom session creates a sense of community and provides a range of activities. Please click here to view our Remote Learning Policy.

Admissions

Our Admissions team remain open as usual, and our Principal, Madeleine Taylor, our Deputy Principal, Sally Cox along with our Nursery Manager, Shirley Offer are happy to speak to prospective parents. We will be very pleased to hear from anyone considering Springmead School and Nursery. Please email info@springmead.com to find out more.

Nursery

The nursery remains open to all children.

Children of Key Workers and Vulnerable Children

We will provide for the children of Key Workers and Vulnerable children onsite. School parents who would like to access this provision please email our Principal, Madeleine Taylor (mtaylor@springmead.com) or our Deputy Principal, Sally Cox (scox@springmead.com) for more information.

Risk Assessment

Springmead School has robust practices in place to help minimise the risk of transmission. Parents have been sent guidelines to support these practices and staff follow strict protocols in risk management.

Conclusion

Springmead School will continue to monitor the situation and update policy as official advice changes. We will also keep our entire community aware of any developments, and any expected time frame for the resumption of normal operations.

For anyone needing more information, the Department for Education has a helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:
