Food and Nutrition

At Springmead we provide well-balanced and nutritious meals, prepared on site using fresh produce, locally sourced where ever possible. 

In addition to lunchtime meals a healthy mid morning snack is provided with a drink of milk or water (water is available to children throughout the day).

Afternoon tea is given to those children attending after school clubs.

Health Advice

To reduce the infection risk and to protect our children, if your child suffers from diarrhoea and/or vomiting please keep them away from school for a 48 hour period after the final episode of diarrhoea/vomiting. If your child has a fever or ‘flu-like’ symptoms they must remain off school until they have had a normal temperature for 24 hours. 

Online Safety

The use of these new technologies can put young people at risk within and outside the school. We have an online safety curriculum that teaches our children how to be safe and we run an online safety parent focus for parents annually. 

Some useful resources:

Springmead School Refund Scheme

A School Fees Refund Scheme is available to all pupils.  The Scheme offers cover for absences under the following circumstances:

  •  Absence from school from accident, illness or contact with infectious disease, or
  • The necessary closure of the whole school owing to an outbreak of infectious disease.

Claims for a refund of fees, for a period of absence, are covered by this scheme. 

Pupils accident & Insurance Scheme

A Pupils’ Personal Accident Insurance Scheme is provided for all pupils and covers the risk of an accident happening that causes bodily injury resulting in death, permanent disability or dismemberment, to a maximum of £600,000.  

All pupils will be covered by this scheme at no additional cost, unless parents explicitly inform the school in writing (please email info@springmead.com), that they do not wish their child/children to be included in the scheme.

Supporting your child at home

If the school has had to close for unavoidable reasons or if you cannot get your child into school, please continue with homework, mental math activites and reading. On this page we have placed links to websites that have many educational activities you may wish to access.

School Travel Plan

The School Travel Plan identifies ways in which the school can support parents using sustainable means of transport. By reducing the number of vehicular trips that come to school, we can:

  1. reduce our impact on the environment;
  2. reduce our impact on Beckington and retain the good will of our neighbours whose support we value;
  3. through good example, educate our children to be environmentally responsible.

If your child travels to and from Springmead by sustainable means you can claim up to 10% discount from the term’s fees. Sustainable means of transport are:

  • Public bus
  • Cycling
  • Walking
  • Car sharing

Car Sharing

We operate a brokering system to put parents in touch with each other who have space in their car with appropriate seat belts and would be willing to provide transport for pupils local to them would like their children to receive a lift in another parents car to and/or from school.

Parking

When attending the school with your car, please park on the Frome Road. There are designated parts of the lay-bys that you may use; you can park on the other side of the road, or park on the school side of the road beyond the School Keep Clear sign. It is a requirement of the Terms and Conditions of Admission that parents / guardians do not use Church Hill, Church Road and Castle Corner for vehicular access when dropping off or collecting their children.

Why Carpe Diem? What if it’s a rare snowy day? What shall we do? Timetable as usual? No way!
