We value the partnership that we have with all Millbrook families. We strive to create as many opportunities as we can for parents, carers and families to be involved and engaged in school life and in learning with our children. We believe that this really does make all the difference to our children’s learning. The strength of this work has been recognised in a Welsh Government guidance document:
Congratulations to Millbrook Primary’s Tag rugby team who took part in The Newport Tag Rugby Tournament last week. Not only did the team come 3rd out of the entire tournament but they were awarded The Fair Play Award for their outstanding behaviour, respect for others and sense of fair play. Well done boys and girls! The whole school community is very proud of you!
A big thank you to the whole school community for helping us to raise money for Comic Relief. Staff, pupils, parents and community volunteers got into the “Red Nose Day spirit” by making their faces funny for money, wearing funny clothes or hair and most importantly by donating money for this worthwhile cause.
Special thanks to pupils and staff of The Bridge Achievement Centre for holding a cake sale in school and making a big contribution to the event.

Millbrook Primary School has been categorised as a Yellow Support School. Staff and governors are delighted with this outcome particularly as our standards and our capacity to improve place us on the cusp of being a green support school. Being yellow also means that we can access support from The Education Achievement Service. See the attached document for information about how Millbrook’s categorisation was calculated:
