Good and Improving

Welcome to Calum Foad

We were delighted to welcome singer and songwriter Calum Foad to Springfield today.  Calum took time out of his busy schedule to perform to our Year 10 pupils and delivered an eye opening drug education talk.  Calum spoke to the pupils about making good life choices and the dangers and consequences of taking drugs.  He treated everyone to some great musical performances.  Thank you to Calum for giving up your time today.

Year 8 Options Evening Information

Please find below a copy of the powerpoint used during the Year 8 Options Evening on Tuesday 17th April along with the Options Booklet also given to pupils. 

Future Choices for Year 8

As you may know our Year 8 pupils are currently deciding which options to study from Year 9. To assist them we held a 'Future Choices Day' thanks to EBP South Limited. Local business volunteers, colleges and universities kindly gave up their time to showcase their businesses, courses and/or apprenticeship opportunities. Pupils were fully engaged in this informative and interactive day and had time to reflect on what they would like to do when they leave Springfield. Special thanks to EBP South Limited for organising the day and to all the companies who participated.

9E Get Tidy!

On 22nd March 2018 9E helped me clean and tidy their tutor base. All the computers and the desks are now dust and dirt free and the classroom looks much better. They have been awarded house points for this good deed and I am really very proud of their hard work. We were following the good model used in Japanese schools, where students are developing these kind of responsibilities from an early age. 9E are going to continue the good deeds over the Easter holidays.  Each pupil is hoping to spend an hour of their own time taking part in a good deed in the local community whether it be tidying the beach or park or something similiar (buddying up with a friend or family member).  Well done 9E!

Mrs Nikolova, Tutor of 9E

Pupils Presented with Prizes

As previously reported some of our Year 8 pupils were pleased to attend a 'Get Inspired Portsmouth' event on 1st February 2018.  As part of the event run by EBP South Limited pupils had the chance to enter various competitions run by local businesses.  EBP South Limited and Eaton were delighted to present two lucky pupil winners with their prizes on Tuesday 27th March 2018 at the Year 8 assembly.  Congratulations to Oakley Vernon (8F) who won an 'Echo' and Lucy-Jo Allcock (8L) who won a book voucher.

Careers Themed Focus Day for Year 10

We were delighted to welcome a huge array of guests to school to support our Year 10 pupils on a careers themed focus day. Sessions were varied and included presentation skills, personal branding from a company called CragRats, stress busting and risk taking. This was enriched by mock interviews with a large number of local business professionals in support. A great step forward on their journey to develop employability skills. Next challenges will be post sixteen taster days in June, work experience in July and lots of local open evenings from now on. The aim is for all pupils to know where they intend to go and what they intend to do by February 2019. Parents will now be thinking where has the time gone. As per the modern art sculpture in the school quad, the world is your oyster!  Thank you to IBM, CragRats, The Girls' Network, Manpower, The Civil Service, BAE, Queensbury Shelters and Springfield Governors for giving up your time to visit us today. 

Mr Lomas, Head of Enterprise and PDL

The Impact of Social Media on Pupils

Nine out of ten headteachers say social media is damaging the mental health of pupils.

A survey of headteachers has found that 95% feel that social media use is damaging the mental health and well-being of young people – and that there is overwhelming support for new laws and regulation to keep children safe online.
