The Wellbeing of the children and staff at Springvale Primary is of the utmost importance. At our school, we believe that in order to flourish academically, it is vitally important that children are first provided with a positive and happy place to learn. In order to ensure that our children develop into life-long happy and healthy people, we promote health and wellbeing across school in a variety of ways.

Firstly, we follow a curriculum programme called One Decision, which is taught in discrete weekly lessons, this covers the entirety of the PSHE and SRE curriculum. This coverage is also supplemented with significant additional events in school and themed weeks/special assemblies to enhance the fantastic online materials and interactive videos this provides. Where relevant, cross-curricular links are made in other lessons, such as English, Numeracy, Science, physical education and religious education.

Our wellbeing themed assemblies follow a structured plan, this ensures a thorough coverage of all areas and ensures that key areas such as online safety are revisited throughout the year.

  • A designated wellbeing support officer- Mrs A Kent- who is able to support children with a variety of needs

  • An experienced school councillor who visits school once a term
  • E-safety learning and support for parents and children at various points across the school year

  • Expert visitors from a variety of backgrounds who are able to provide workshops and talks around topical areas
  • School visits/ visitors promoting life skills such as swimming lessons, bikeability, Crucial Crew and Enterprise to name just a few
  • School council

Modern Foreign Languages

Our Modern Foreign Language teaching focuses on Spanish and covers Y3-6 (KS2). This area is led by Mrs H Kelly and the MfL link Governor is Miss J Alderson.

In our school we learn Spanish.

We are beginning to learn how to listen, speak, read and write in Spanish.

We enjoy singing songs, playing games and listening  to simple stories.

We find out interesting facts about Spain.

We enjoy being language detectives.

We enjoy practising our language and learning super skills!

We like to find out how we can use these skills in other languages too.
