We have been pleased to offer Mandarin training for our staff and other teachers across the region as part of our work with The Confucius Institute, Cardiff. Our staff have attended training after school to learn Mandarin Chinese. This is supporting us in our work to develop our provision of a Modern Foreign Language. We are an official Confucius Classroom school and, as such we offer Mandarin as part of our curriculum. This also fits with the new curriculum in Wales. 

“Learning about identity and culture through languages prepares us to be citizens of Wales and the world.”  (Draft Curriculum for Wales, 2019)

We are very proud of some of our older students who have been working with students from Malpas Court and Malpas Church Primary Schools to research what makes good learning. The students have been visiting eachother’s schools and using The Excellence in Teaching and Leadership Framework to research what makes good teaching and learning. Well done everyone! 

We have had a great year developing our learning and awareness about people who have dementia. Staff and students have received training and, as a result, we are on our way to becoming a Dementia Friendly School. Well done everyone! 


Sports Day 2019!

June 16th, 2019

A big thank you to the whole school community for supporting this year’s Sports Day. We were very lucky with the weather. The children displayed great sportsmanship, resilience and talent. We are very proud of them all. 

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.
