Millbrook Primary School

‘Learning about caring; caring about learning’

Support for parents and families

We are proud to work in partnership with parents, carers and families of the children attending Millbrook Primary School. We strive to support our families in a variety of ways:

  • By providing advice and support about your child's education/well-being
  • By providing learning opportunities and experiences for families and children together
  • By signposting and introducing families to other agencies that can provide a variety of support and advice.

 

We operate a whole school approach to parental engagement. Every class teacher will organise opportunities for you to visit your child's class on at least a termly basis. In addition we run a number of learning engagement opportunities which change throughout the year. Sometimes these are run by school-based staff and sometimes these are run by other agencies. We are fortunate to have a dedicated family room and a dedicated community block. These are utilised for a variety of events and activities involving children, parents and families. 

We operate an open door policy and should you need to speak to your child's teacher please come in and see us at the end of the school day. Alternatively, the school office staff would be pleased to make an appointment. 

 

If you feel you may need some family support please contact the school. You can speak to your child's class teacher directly or to one of our nurture and wellbeing officers - Ms Harris and Mrs Passmore.
