Networks and Events
The Springfields Academy embraces an ethos of collaboration, not competition.
As part of Reach South Multi-Academy Trust, the academy works closely with a large number of schools. However, we also value building partnerships outside of our organisation. The academy runs a number of events and networks on a ‘participation not profit’ basis.
For all enquiries regarding networks and events please email:

Chartered College of Teaching SEND Network
The academy is proud to run a SEND network for the Chartered College of Teaching.
To date over 100 education professionals have attended over 8 events, covering topics such as: anxiety, mental health, trauma-informed teaching and good SEND practice.
A-Fest 2023 will take place on Tuesday 21st February 2023.
A-Fest, A Festival Celebrating Autism, had its inaugural festival in February 2019.
Our desire to learn, share and celebrate good practice led to the creation of A-Fest. In 2022, 75 external attendees joined us for a day of celebrating autism. We hope you can join us next year when A-Fest turns 5!
