Our heddlu bach have gone from strength this year working in partnership with Gwent Police, Crimestoppers, the community and other organisations in order to make a difference and to promote community safety. Our 20 strong mini police force have enjoyed teaching the rest of the school about safety and recently ran a whole school assembly about Stephen Lawrence – students were encouraged to make good choices and to “Live your best life.” Our heddlu bach have also been busy learning about being fearless and reporting crime. Thank you to Fearless.Org and to PCSO Metcalfe-Davies for your support.   

During the spring term our whole school theme has been Cymru a’r Byd, Wales and the World. Whilst continuing to focus on the global goals, our students have focused on The Well Being Goals for Wales – in particular goal 6: a Wales of vibrant culture and thriving Welsh language. Our classes have taken every opportunity to explore our Welsh language and to research and celebrate the Welsh culture. We are very grateful to the whole community for taking part in our home culture learning project. We had the most amazing pieces of work all dedicated to celebrating Wales. Well done and thank you everyone! 



We were also delighted to celebrate the Welsh language and culture during our whole school Eisteddfod. Well done to Ty Ruby for winning the Eisteddfod and well done to Katie for being crowned Millbrook Bard 2019!

The school has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly between schools and Gwent Police.

Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to 9am on the next school day, when a child or young person has been exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident. Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the school staff, known as a Key Adult, will use the information that has been shared, in confidence, in order to support any children who have been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident.

We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.

Our Y6 pupils were delighted to welcome Sophie Howe, The first Future Generations Commissioner for Wales, to school the other week. The pupils shared the work they have done on the sustainable development goals and the well-being goals for Wales. Our Children First Group and our Heddlu Bach also shared their work around improving our fabulous community. Sophie was so impressed with our children and our school that she featured us in her January newsletter. She even quoted Cherish in Y6: 

‘It’s like dropping a pebble into the water, it will create a ripple and will reflect on people and help change the world’.

We are very proud of our whole community and we are grateful to Sophie and her team for taking the time to visit us. 

We are very grateful to our whole school community for the support and effort given to promoting kindness and joy across the community this Christmas. Kindness is one of our school core character values chosen by our students and community members. 

Our students have sung and performed for our elderly friends at Willow brook nursing home in Bettws; our Friends of Millbrook have held our community breakfast with Santa event and we are working with children and families to create Christmas angel tree decorations all in aid of raising money for Newport Mind. 

We urge our community to take our kindness challenge this Christmas – think of a random act of kindness that you can do for someone this Christmas and put it into action. Any act of kindness, however small, can make a difference to someone’s life. 

We are delighted to announce that our school has been awarded The Cymraeg Campus Bronze Award in recognition of our promotion of the Welsh language and culture across our whole school community. We are so proud of everyone. 

Llongyfarchiadau! Congratulations!

Criw Cymraeg 2018-2019

Meet our fantastic Criw Cymraeg for 2018-2019! Our role is to help promote Cymraeg – Welsh – through our school. 
Gadewch i ni siarad Cymraeg! Let's speak Welsh!

Year 4 recently ran their own Community Coffee sessions for the whole community. They served refreshments and cakes in exchange for donations to Macmillan Cancer Support. Their hard work raised an amazing £220.55 for this worthwhile cause. We are very proud of all the children for planning, organising and running the event themselves. A big thank you to our wonderful community for your support.
