About Springfield Infant School and Nursery

Springfield Infants is a unique, exciting place to work. Within it's urban setting you will find many hidden gems; a dedicated, talented team of staff; enthusiastic, happy children and at the heart of our grounds, an oasis of wildlife.

Visitors to our school always comment on the 'feeling' they get as they look around, a distinctive atmosphere which I believe is a special blend of high quality learning experiences, care for every individual and a little Springfield 'Magic' which ensures the high standards of behaviour, independence and confidence that each and every one of our 310 children aged 7 or under demonstrates.

As Head Teacher I have the pleasure and absolute privilege of working in this atmosphere every single day and I hope you will want to join us in playing a vital role in a child's first steps on their educational journey.
