Reducing Barriers to Learning
Our Ofsted inspection in 2012 stated that:
'Pupils feel that the school is safe and that everyone is respectful of others’ safety...all pupils are ‘signed-up’ to the EPIC (Effort, Participation, Improvement and Celebration) vision of their conduct and learning in school.'
At Springbank Primary Academy, we passionately believe that all of our children should be able to reach their full potential, regardless of their circumstances, race, gender or ability. We are fully inclusive school, our hard working team of staff supporting all children to reduce barriers to learning.
Our Behaviour and Emotional Support Training (BEST) team provide additional nurturing, coaching and mentoring support as well as a number of personalised programmes to help some of our more vulnerable children unpick 'blocks' to their learning. They are also available for any child who simply needs someone to talk to.
We also carefully plan support and interventions for all groups of children, including our more able and pupils with specific educational needs.
