Family Learning Success

May 9th, 2015

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:

What really works for the early years? – Guidance for the Early Years Pupil Deprivation Grant

We are grateful to all families, community partners, staff and children for their continued support.

Pupil Deprivation Grant spending plans will be updated in the “Millbrook Plans for improvement” section of the website shortly.

“Learning about caring;

Caring about learning.”

Red Nose Day 2015

March 14th, 2015

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.

Together we can make a difference! Thank you!

School Categorisation

February 8th, 2015

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:
