Who we are
As Headteacher, I am delighted to be able to introduce you to the Springfields Academy. Naturally, the education and care of your child is very important and, like you, we want them to fulfil their potential and be prepared for a safe independent life after school, whilst enjoying a wide range of exciting opportunities on the way.
Springfields Academy is a large special school for pupils with a diagnosis of autism that is split over two sites. One in Calne and a smaller satellite centre in Salisbury. We benefit from a well-resourced site, where we offer education, therapy and residential provision.
Our team of staff are highly qualified specialists. We believe that the three-way partnership of pupil, school and parents is vital to enable all children to thrive. Their success needs your support and our school is committed to working with you to provide that.
We are fully dedicated to maintaining our strong ethos and high standards, whilst offering experiences that support the children’s diagnostic and developmental needs.
Pupils at Springfields are “supported to succeed and become independent learners”. As well as a broad and balanced academic curriculum, designed to provide the qualifications needed for further education and skills required to succeed in an adult working life, Springfields offers a wide range of therapies and interventions to support the presenting needs of the individual child. These provide the foundations and skills, that enable pupils to progress, thrive and ultimately develop into well rounded young adults who will contribute positively to society.
Visitors are always welcome at Springfields. If you would like to come and see the school in action then please get in contact and we can arrange a tour. If you are prospective parent then we strongly advise that you come and have a look. We understand how important getting the right school for your child is and coming and spending some time on site can only help inform that decision.
Springfields is a wonderful place to work, learn, and in some cases reside. I am proud to have the privilege to work and lead Springfields Academy.
We look forward to you attending or visiting the school in the near future.
