Letter from the Head of School
Springfield Academy is an ambitious school where children are valued and placed firmly at the heart of everything we do. Everyone is committed to making a difference for the children and families in our community. Making a difference at Springfield Academy really does mean just that. Our children are fantastic and the job satisfaction that you have from working with them and being part of our community is enormous. We have a constant drive to improve so that everyone, children and adults alike, can succeed. People ask me why they should work at Springfield. My message is clear: at the end of each day you know that you can go home, having worked hard, but really know that you have had a big impact on the lives of our children and their families. You have made a real difference. We do work hard and set high expectations of all our team but your career development and professional worth is huge and much greater at Springfield than in other schools. In addition, being part of a growing group of academies brings many more opportunities for your own professional growth. We are a diverse community in Nottingham, many of our children live in deprived households yet we ensure that they all achieve their potential. We recognise that this takes everyone working as a team, united in striving to give our children the best possible education. If you are considering joining us then please take the time to come and visit us to see for yourself why we think Djanogly primary schools are the best. I look forward to reviewing your application form and possibly meeting you in the near future.
Kind regards J B Francis Head of School
