Virtual Open Evening 2020 

We regret that we are unable to host our normal open evening event this year (2020) due to the risk of transmission of COVID-19.

Instead, we hope that you enjoy watching the films that we have produced, which tell you about the school and its positive learning environment (available on this page from 01 October 2020).

We are also hosting some virtual ‘question and answer’ sessions with senior staff on Tuesday 6 October at 6pm and would warmly invite you to sign up to these sessions via the link below:


The sessions will last for approximately 45 minutes and be hosted by two members of staff.   Capacity is limited and so places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis – with one place available for each Year 6 child.  Please sign up no later than 10am on 02 October.    


We hope that you enjoy the films and look forward to meeting you in the future. 

Admissions Service


Admission to the school is managed by the Admissions Service of Portsmouth City Council, which is required to take part in a cross-border co-ordinated scheme for main round admissions. This allows parents to complete one application form from their home local authority, regardless of the school and the area in which they wish to apply for a place. This is known as a ‘Common Application Form’.

Please contact the Admissions Service directly for information regarding applying for a place at Springfield.

Portsmouth operates an ‘Equal Preference’ admissions scheme in line with government requirements. If the school is oversubscribed, applications will be considered first according to the following priorities in the order set out below:

  1. Children who are or have been looked after by a local authority.
  2. Children or families who have a significant medical, physical, psychological or social need.
  3. Children living within the school’s designated catchment area.

If the school cannot admit all applications from the catchment area, priorities (as defined in the Portsmouth City Council Admissions Policy) will be used.
