Headteacher Welcome

A welcome message from Mrs Samaira Nasim, Headteacher

Hello and welcome to Burnley Springfield Community Primary School. I hope that you find the information on our school website both insightful and informative.

For our children and staff, Springfield is not just a school but a real community of enthusiastic learners. As a school we strive to inspirechallenge, and empower our children so that when they start the next stage of their educational journey, we can be confident that not only have they reached their full academic potential but leave with high levels of resilience, self-worth, confidence and are equipped with essential skills which will allow them to make their way in the world.

Our educational philosophy is based on developing the whole child that is not just focused on academic success. Consequently,  we also place considerable emphasis on emotional literacy and positive mental health and development; we believe these underpin positive behaviour for learning. We wholeheartedly believe that these factors, alongside high-quality teaching and learning;  delivering an ambitious curriculum- fit for all- that considers our children’s life experiences as well as providing enrichment experiences, to build their cultural capital, is what leads to success.

As parents and carers, you are vital partners in the work we do. We recognise and understand the importance and significance of building positive relationships between home and school. For this reason, we encourage as much parental participation as possible whilst your child is with us.

The stars of our school are, of course, our children and the staff themselves. We have a dedicated team of passionate staff who are always willing to go above and beyond to ensure everyone experiences success within a happy, safe and secure environment. In terms of the children, very few visitors fail to comment on their politeness and enthusiasm. For this reason, I feel very privileged and proud to be the Headteacher of this fantastic school.
