Futures Overview

This part of our website has been put together to share information with all stakeholders (students, parents, staff, governors and employers) about our Futures and Careers programme at Springfield School.  Futures and Careers incorporates Preparing for Adulthood, work readiness, independence and community engagement - everything that our young people need to achieve as much independence in their futures as possible. 
We have rebranded to Futures and Careers as this is more inclusive and better represents our offer to our students.
The Futures tree represents the fact that every student is unique - just as no two leaves are the same.  Each student will go on to live their own future and we will do our best to support them on this journey.

    Head of Sixth Form, Supported Internship Lead and Futures and Careers Lead


    I have been at Springfield for almost 10 years now. As a school community, we see the potential in our students and aim to support them to achieve this when they leave us. I am honoured to be leading the Futures and Careers Team to ensure all students achieve their potential in the future.

What we already do well - all subject leaders take responsibility for their subject areas, ensuring their curriculum meets the needs of our changing cohorts.
In Sixth Form, students access internal work experience on a weekly basis as well as external placements when suitable.
Students are able to move from Sixth Form over to The Springboard Project, our supported internship programme, if this is the most appropriate option.
All of our external placements are set up by Safe Opportunities, taking students' vocational profiling into consideration.
Coming soon - 
New offer for KS3/4 - Futures and Careers lessons timetabled for every week
Workskills accreditation offer for Post-16 students
