Springfield is a vibrant school at the heart of the community in Kempston.  I am extremely proud of the children, committed staff and positive ethos.  Many 

children are now second generation and parents enjoy sharing their memories of Springfield from years ago.  The curriculum at Springfield is very creative, 

thanks to our hard working staff and we pride ourselves on the number of visits and visitors which are planned into the Springfield calendar. We are a values 

school which means there is a focus on teaching twelve core values: respect, friendship, responsibility, happiness, honesty, love, co-operation, trust, 

thoughtfulness, patience and courage.
 
The school has a very lively Reception Unit consisting of 3 classes with spaces for 72 children.  This tends to fill up very quickly.  The children enjoy discovering 

through play and exploring the unit with plenty of adult supervision and guidance.  Each class has a class teacher and Teaching Assistant.  The children are 

encouraged to access activities in all rooms and of course outside.  The children are also introduced to Italian and Mandarin in Reception.
