Springfields Emotional Literacy Centre

In July 2009 students, parents and teachers celebrated the results of the first year of a pioneering project at Springfields School in Calne, Wiltshire in partnership with VisionWorks.

KS3 students from various schools in North Wiltshire who spent a day a week at the Centre for Emotional Literacy confirmed that their lives had turned around.

Their attendance at school improved in over 90% of cases, and the number of fixed-term exclusions dropped conclusively for each student.

In addition, pupils said that:

  • Attitude improved
  • Improved attendance
  • Improved positive thinking
  • Try harder in school
  • Listen more
  • More confident
  • Better at asking for help
  • Understanding people’s feelings.
