We are firmly committed to developing the talents and potential of all our staff and place great emphasis on their wellbeing.

We are focused on, and committed to, making rapid progress towards delivering an outstanding provision and are looking to appoint staff who have high expectations of themselves and pupils.  This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a forward thinking pro-active team committed to further improving outcomes for very vulnerable young people 

Springfield House School is a mixed day/residential special school meeting the needs of pupils who have been assessed as having social, emotional and mental health difficulties. We have 96 pupils on roll from reception to Year 6.  Many of the pupils have medical diagnoses including ADHD, ASC, PTSD, PDA, ODD and Attachment Disorder. They have also experienced significant disruption to their education due to multiple school moves, fixed term and permanent exclusions and long periods of part-time or no placement in a school.  

Springfield House School received a judgement of “Outstanding” from Ofsted in January 2016 and its residential provision was also judged “Good” in March 2017.

This is a school where you can make a real and lasting difference to the young people in our care. We are highly ambitious to provide our students with the best education and preparation for a happy and successful transition into secondary school.
