Mrs Drew and Mrs George travelled to London where they were presented with our award. We are grateful to Experian for their support and to Newport North Communities North. Our whole learning community has embraced the need to develop and improve financial awareness and understanding. Thank you all pupils, families and staff for your hard work.
Please note that Millbrook Primary School has a food hygiene rating of 5 in respect of our school kitchen, canteen and all food preparation undertaken by the school. This is the highest rating that can be achieved.

School has broken up for the half term break. We have set a whole school homework task to help learners and their families to flex their learning muscles and to get creative. Your task is to design and make a model of your dream house.
How many rooms will it have? Will it have a garden? How many floors? Will it have any special features? Be as a creative as you can. Models and ideas should be brought to school when we return after the half term break on Monday 31st October.
Our newly appointed global ambassadors were delighted to welcome learners from Pillgwenlly Primary School, St Andrews Primary School and St Woolos Primary School last week. The children forged new friendships quickly enjoying pointing out aspects of global learning around the school. Our global ambassador group defined what they felt the role of a global ambassador should be and presented some of their ideas to the rest of the group. They aim to lead the way in developing an understanding of global learning in each of their schools.
