Equality Information

The Equality Act 2010 ensures protection from discrimination, harassment and victimisation on the grounds of specific characteristics (referred to in legislation as “protected” characteristics).

For schools this means that it is unlawful to discriminate against pupils or treat them less favourably because of their gender, race, disability, religion or belief, gender reassignment and sexual orientation.

Springfield Academy complies with the Public Sector Equality Duty and we work to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • Advance equality of opportunity between different groups
  • Foster good relations between different groups
  • Publish information to show how we comply with the Equality Duty (we do this through the Trust’s Equality and Diversity Objectives Statement)
  • Publish equality objectives which are specific and measurable

Further information on our equality objectives can be found on the Policies and Procedures page on the EVAT website.

Pupil and Catch-up Premium

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding that the Government gives to schools for each pupil on roll who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) within the last 6 years, those who are or have been looked after by the local authority and children who have parents in the armed forces.

The amount given to the school varies each year. It must be spent on supporting pupil’s education and it is up to the school to determine how it is best spent to improve opportunities and maximise outcomes for pupils.

All schools are required to report the amount of funding they have receive, plan how they will spend it and explain the outcomes achieved from the investment made.

Swimming statistics 2023

The information below is for our Year 6 cohort, that left our school in July 2023.

What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres when they left your primary school at the end of the last academic year?63%
What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively (for example, front crawl,backstroke and breaststroke) when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?66%
What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations whenthey left your primary school at the end of last academic year?66%

 

Understanding the statistics:

  • All children are assessed  against the expected learning outcomes of the National Curriculum.
  • At Key stage 2 the expected learning outcomes that  our local authority swimming teachers assess the children against by the time they leave primary school in year 6 are as follows:- Pace themselves in floating & swimming challenges related to speed distance and personal survival.
    – Swim unaided for a sustained period of time over a distance of at least 25m.
    – Use a range of recognised strokes and personal survival skills (e.g. front crawl, back crawl, breaststroke, sculling, floating).

We believe that being a competent swimmer is an essential life skill and therefore we ensure that all of our children get swimming lessons every year. This starts with our Nursery children and goes right through until Year 6. This is possible as we have two swimming pools on site and we have qualified swimming teachers and trained teaching assistants and who deliver the swimming curriculum.
