About Springfield Primary School

Springfield Primary School opened in 1969 and has been at the heart of the Kempston community. We pride ourselves on being a family-centred school where up to three generations of some families, including some of our staff, have been part of our Springfield journey.

We are proud of our children and have often been complimented on their exemplary behaviour. From the start of their school journey, we encourage our children to foster positive relationships. As a values-led school, we are committed to the development of the whole child.  

At Springfield Primary School we provide pupils with a global curriculum based on knowledge and skills that is relevant for the 21st century. These skills are critically important for future success. We believe that global learning helps pupils make sense of the increasingly complex and rapidly changing world in which they live. Our curriculum enables pupils to think critically about world issues and to develop an awareness of the impact our own actions can have on others.

The six themes children are exposed to across all year groups are:

  • Social justice and equity
  • Identity and diversity
  • Sustainable development
  • Peace and conflict
  • Human rights
  • Power and governance

These six global learning themes are broken down into knowledge and understanding, skills, and attitudes. The six global themes outlined above are explored through all areas of the curriculum and across the subject disciplines.

We provide rich opportunities for the children to explore citizenship and real-life world issues, which at times they may have to grapple with to make sense of it. This, in turn, helps them to develop skills such as collaboration and communication, thus equipping them with the necessary skills for life in the 21st century. Across each year a number of high-quality core texts are used to bring the themes to life for our children and to promote a connectedness with the learning.
