At Springcroft, our curriculum prepares our children for a constantly changing world, giving them the necessary skills to both appreciate and contribute to British society and lead happy, healthy lives. Our Values; Resilience, Creativity, Integrity and Collective Responsibility, are quite simply ‘The way we do things around here’ and they form our foundation and provide the justification of our behaviours in everything we do.
Why? We believe in preparing our children for life in the modern world, becoming resilient adults with integrity, radiating creativity, able to take responsibility for their actions, and shape their future.
How? We have a holistic philosophy to each child through providing a truly broad and balanced curriculum, nurturing creativity and one that fosters independence in both learning and thought.
