Testing is available to anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19, whatever their age. Tests are free and can be requested through a single portal on GOV.UK.

People returning from those countries to the UK are required to self-isolate for 14 days. If you travel overseas after 18 August, it is essential you check https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice to find out whether you are required to self-isolate. If you are, your child MUST stay away from school for 14 days from first day of your return to the UK.
Welcome to our wonderful school, Five Spires Academy. We are a one form entry school that welcomes children from Nursery right through to Year 6.
Our school is a happy, thriving school that is proud to be part of our local community. We like to think of Five Spires as a family that embraces everyone in its community, from pupils and staff to governors, parents and carers. As a school, we live and breathe our school motto: Everyone Inspire, Everyone Aspire'. This message underpins everything that we do, be that in the classroom, on the sports field or in the wider school community.
Our bespoke, creative ‘learning-adventure’ curriculum enriches children’s learning experiences and ensures that a love of learning is fostered in every child, in every classroom, every day. It is delivered through a wealth of relevant, real-life problem-solving opportunities where connections are made between subjects. Our lively curriculum is designed to be varied and engaging and as a result, children are absorbed in their learning, actively seeking ways to overcome any obstacles that they meet.
Five Spires pupils are resilient: they relish a challenge and use mistakes as further opportunities to learn. They are encouraged to become independent, autonomous and confident learners who who take every opportunity to be the best that they can be.
Every member of the Five Spires team believes passionately in the importance of learning in a caring and nurturing environment so that all children develop and achieve their best as valued members of the school family. We strive to ensure that every child fulfils their potential in all areas of school life and look forward to welcoming you into our happy school.
