About Springhill Primary Academy

Letter from Nikita Silvester-Grant, Headteacher, Springhill Primary Academy

Dear Candidate
Springhill Primary Academy is a one form entry school located in Burntwood. The school opened as a new academy in January 2014. There are eight classes in school, from Nursery to Year 6.
Our school is a happy, thriving school that is proud to be part of our local community. We like to think of Springhill as a family that embraces everyone in its community, from pupils and staff to governors, parents and carers. As a school, we live and breathe our school motto: ‘Reach High, Learn Together’. This message underpins everything that we do, be that in the classroom, on the sports field or in the wider school community.
Our bespoke, creative ‘mini-mission’ curriculum enriches children’s learning experiences and ensures that a love of learning is fostered in every child, in every classroom, every day. It is delivered through a wealth of relevant, real-life problem-solving opportunities where connections are made between subjects. Our lively curriculum is designed to be varied and engaging and as a result, children are absorbed in their learning, actively seeking ways to overcome any obstacles that they meet.
Springhill pupils are resilient: they relish a challenge and use mistakes as further opportunities to learn. They are encouraged to become independent, autonomous and confident learners who take every opportunity to be the best that they can be.
Every member of the Springhill team believes passionately in the importance of learning in a caring and nurturing environment so that all children develop and achieve their best as valued members of the school family. We strive to ensure that every child fulfils their potential in all areas of school life and look forward to welcoming you to our happy school.
We are looking for creative, dedicated individuals who share our passion, vision and ethos to ensure we offer a first-class educational experience for our children. We welcome professionals who can help to continually shape our school community and our curriculum, and ‘go the extra mile’ in order to ensure that Springhill Primary Academy remains a thriving provider of outstanding educational experience and achievement for all our pupils.
Nikita Silvester-Grant, Head Teacher, Springhill Primary Academy
