Promoting British Values

Through its curriculum, extra-curricular activities, teaching and learning, Springside Primary School will promote British values. By doing so, we will ensure that all learners understand the values that have traditionally underpinned British society. The teaching of these values will promote cohesiveness within our school and community. We will prepare pupils for life in England where the population has an increasingly rich diversity of backgrounds, origins, beliefs and cultures by promoting the values on which our society has been built. By teaching pupils these values we will help all to become good citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

We are now a Certified Online Safe School

posted 28 Oct 2020, 09:35 by Miss Thornicroft

Since September, staff and governors have been working very hard to complete online courses in Children's Online Safety and as we have now all passed the courses, we have been awarded a certificate to show we are a Certified Online Safe School. As part of this, we will be inviting parents to complete an online course in order to help you become more aware and we will also be sending you lots of useful fact sheets about apps and games.

World Book Day

What a great day we had for World Book Day! The whole school studied 'Red - A Crayon's Story' by Michael Hall. 
We all dressed in bright colours and this helped us to get involved in all the different activities. 
We also had a multi-coloured cake sale to help raise money for books in school. 
Thank-you to everyone who supported us.
