Spring Bank Primary School

Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to the Spring Bank Primary School Website. I hope that you will find it informative and that you get a good feel for our wonderful school. Our website is designed to provide a flavour of the school and to celebrate some of the work and achievements of our children.

I am delighted and proud to be able to introduce myself, as the new Head Teacher at Spring Bank Primary School, which sits at the heart of the local community.

I have been made to feel really welcome by all the children, staff and families and I am very excited about working in partnership with the whole community. I grew up in Cambridge until the age of 14 when my family then moved to Harrogate. I have lived and worked in a number of different counties and for the past ten years I have been working in primary education in Norfolk. I am thrilled to be back in Yorkshire and to have been given the opportunity to play a key role in shaping the education and raising the aspirations of our young people at Spring Bank Primary School.

Working together as a team, myself and the staff aim to provide a supportive and caring environment, inspirational teaching – concentrating on embedding the basic skills, while engaging and motivating our pupils through enrichment activities, to be the best they possibly can be. Children who join our school begin a seven-year learning journey, which will prepare them for their secondary phase of education and beyond.

I believe that working in partnership with parents and families is crucial, if we are to ensure all of our children feel safe, happy, valued and achieve their full potential. I look forward to meeting you all in the near future at school events, assemblies, social occasions or even a quick chat on the school yard!
