A message from Rebecca Deacon, Head of school for Springfields South-

Springfields South is a satellite provision part of the Springfields Academy. The school is located at the Sarum Academy in Salisbury. We are a happy, creative school where all our children belong. Our organisation wide intent to 'build safe, independent lives' drives our curriculum, culture and ethos.

We provide a broad, balanced and creative curriculum for each and every one of our pupils. We teach an immersive and engaging topic based curriculum and provide exciting opportunities for active learning.

Our staff have a shared drive to constantly review, improve and enrich our curriculum to ensure learning is relevant and exciting for all our pupils. Our highly experienced staff inspire and enable our children. They provide pupils with appropriate challenge and an excellent breadth and quality of education provision.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our family.

 Approach to Learning:

Children develop their communication and language skills with strategies such as 'word aware' embedded into the curriculum. The team work very closely with the Speech and Language Therapist to ensure age appropriate communication scaffolds are in place to support everyone to access the curriculum. Emotional Literacy Support is embedded throughout the pupils' day and personalised interventions are put in place as required. In partnership with the Occupational Therapist the team ensure the learning environment and access to learning meets need. Learning is active and multi-sensory.
