May I, the Principal of Springfield Primary School, on behalf of the Pupils, Staff and Board of Governors, take this opportunity of welcoming you to Springfield Primary School and Playgroup's website. Springfield Primary School is a hive of activity and this website aims to give you a taster of our school life. We hope that you enjoy your visit and find our website beneficial and informative.
Springfield Primary School was established in 1910 and retains a central place in the community of North-West Belfast. The strong family ethos which permeates the school has been nurtured through good relationships at all levels and enhanced by loyal and committed families, some of whom are third and fourth generation pupils. The school has well-established links with the local primary and post primary schools, the local churches, leisure centre, shops and community organisations. Parents are encouraged to take an active interest in their children’s progress by attending regular information sessions, overseeing homework and supporting our healthy eating and school uniform policies.
The abiding aim of the school is reflected in its motto - Achieving over the Years. The school is committed to providing opportunities to develop the talents and abilities of all the children in a positive, challenging and caring learning environment. High standards of work and presentation are emphasized at all levels. Underpinning our teaching methods is the belief that learning should be 'fun' and that children should enjoy school. The broad and balanced curriculum is designed to meet the needs and interests of the pupils. Extended-schools extra-curricular activities include Literacy, Numeracy, ICT (Coding), Sports, Eco, Judo and the Glee Club.
I hope you enjoy visiting and browsing around our school website! Please do not hesitate to get in contact with me at anytime.
Mr S Osborne (Principal)
