Springfields Academy

{Play}There is a survey to elicit views on the potential closure of residential provision at Springfields Academy.


Sharing on behalf of a parent - all parents of pupils should have received this notice.


The purpose of this consultation is to elicit views on the potential closure of residential provision at Springfields Academy.


Springfields Academy is a large 5-19 special school for pupils with a diagnosis of autism. The provision is split over two sites within Wiltshire. One in Calne (170 pupils) and a smaller satellite in Salisbury for 40 pupils.
The schools residential provision is based at Springfields North in Calne and offers 5 day, 39 week residential care for up to 10 pupils (aged 10-16). The Springfields residential provision is inspected under the national minimum standards and is currently rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted (March, 2022).
Our current residential funding agreement runs to August 31st 2022. However, the school has been given notice that this funding agreement will not be renewed. As a result, the school is considering its next steps, which includes closure.
This potential closure of residential provision will affect some pupils, parents and carers. As a result we are consulting with you as stakeholders to ascertain your thoughts and feelings on this potential closure from Sept 1st 2022.
Further information to support this summary can be requested via or by accessing the school website and clicking on the ‘residential’ tab and viewing the document named ‘residential public consultation’.

The consultation will run from Monday 6th June, 2022 to Tuesday 5th July, 2022. We will carefully consider all views before we make final decisions. We would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this survey.
A face to face meeting will take place on Tuesday 21st June, 2022 at 7pm at Springfields, for people who would like to discuss this consultation in person.  - link to electronic version
