NEWS FLASH - BOOK BENCH TRAIL
This summer from July 16th until 13th September, across the West Midlands there is going to be a Book Bench Trail. Following on from last years The Big Hoot Owl trail, the company launched this year’s trail in order to encourage and enthuse children to read. Springfield House is incredibly proud to be taking part in this exciting project. Children from KS1 through to our Year 6 classes have worked super hard to create a beautiful bench. The children chose ‘Elmer’ for their design and the finished result is absolutely beautiful. Our bench is located in the new Solihull arts and theatre complex, The Core. So! Grab those walking boots, pack a lunch and discover all of the wonderful benches from the regions schools, see how many you can spot! We would love to create a display for our school entrance of children visiting the benches, so grab the camera and get snapping! Happy reading!

Making a Difference, Together
A warm welcome to Springfield House School
Springfield House is a Birmingham LA day/residential special school situated in a rural position near Knowle, Solihull. The main house is a former country residence and the listed buildings provide a pleasant environment in which the children can feel valued and begin the long process of raising their self-esteem. Our extensive grounds provide an excellent opportunity to enhance the curriculum and engage the children’s interest.
Our provision is targeted to meets the special educational needs of young people, aged 5 -11, who experience social, emotional and mental health difficulties. In previous settings our pupils have exhibited challenging behaviours, which are frequently associated with a wide range of complex conditions, including ASC, ADHD and Attachment Disorder. We provide a nurturing environment, with firm boundaries, where we support pupils to develop strategies to manage their responses appropriately. We seek to celebrate successes and achievements to build self-confidence and esteem, whilst allowing space and time to reflect on the issues that prevent their full social inclusion.
I hope that you find our website useful and informative, we welcome visits and enquiries to our school.
