Springwell is a primary school for children aged 4 – 11 years with complex learning difficulties. All our children have a severe level of learning difficulties and many have associated disabilities such as autism, speech and language disorders and challenging behaviour. Every child within the School has an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP).
All staff at Springwell work together to uphold our Rainbow Values, to ensure that our pupils have the best education possible. We pride ourselves on the quality of each individual pupil’s education and our work with families and carers. Working in partnership, we strive to achieve the very best for each child and offer support and guidance to families to enable consistency across home and school.
Our purpose-built school has recently undergone a significant expansion, which has created two buildings within our main site: Puffin Building for Years R, 1 and 2 and Partridge Building for Years 3 to 6. Both buildings have wonderful facilities and specialist teaching rooms, including food technology rooms, art rooms, ICT Suites, soft play rooms, multi-sensory interactive rooms and a hydrotherapy pool which is located in Puffin Building, together with dining halls and office space.
In addition to our classes on the main site, we have three Resourced Provision classes in local mainstream schools, Willow, Packham and Mian classes. These classes are taught by Springwell Staff and pupils are full members of our school, but on a daily basis are taught in Springwell classes based in different schools. The majority of our Early Years Pupils are also based in off-site classes at Start Point Sholing.
Springwell continues to develop educational practice to support children and their families with SEND, for example, training new teachers, running courses about SEND and taking part in research to enhance what we already provide.

As newly appointed Co-Headteachers, we are looking forward to working with stakeholders across the school community and city.
We welcome and encourage visits from prospective parents to have the opportunity to meet with you and share further information and details about our school. If you would like to book a Parent Tour please contact the school office.
