My role is to support the children, parents and staff of Springwell and the offsite provisions. I am the lead for all first aid and medical needs across the school. I am able to liaise with the School doctor and the school nurse and other health services. I support the class teams to ensure that children’s health and medical needs are meet whilst they are at school. I also coordinate all the moving and handling of the children to ensure everyone remains safe and support staff with offsite visits.

I work on the main site but am available to support any issues parents may wish to discuss.

Pupil's Communication at Springwell
Thank you to all those parents who participated in our online survey back in the Autumn term 2020 regarding communication with your child. As a part of that survey we asked you what communication courses you would find helpful in the future. Based on this information we are pleased to tell you that we are working closely with the Speech and Language Team to run one course a term. The  first one will focus on ' Understanding Communication'. Details of how to access this training will be shared soon.

Parent Workshops on Positive Behaviour Management 

In the past we have run a series of workshops for parents to support understanding of their child's behaviour. 

Due to requests from parents and issues raised at Annual Reviews and Parents Evenings we are planning a series of workshops for this academic year which will begin during the Spring term. The focuses are going to be;

                         Supporting your child's first few years at Springwell

                         Makaton sign language 

                         Supporting communication

                         Strategies to support toilet training and establishing bedtime and meal time routines. 


WATCH THIS SPACE for dates and more information. Letters will also be sent nearer the time.

Emotional Literacy Support

Springwell School is proactive in promoting 'emotional literacy' for pupils and staff. Ultimately we hope to improve emotional well being throughout the school.

Emotional Literacy support is available to all pupils. This is provided within class but can also be provided by an Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) on an individual or small group basis.

We hope to support our pupils to learn the skills necessary to understand and regulate their own emotions and also respect the feelings of those around them.
