Ethos and Values

The Millbrook Way... means that everything we do is driven by our school values:

 

Striving for Excellence Caring for All

 

Our aim is:-

To create a holistic learning experience

 

We are a strong, caring community with a warm and friendly atmosphere.  It is our belief that children thrive in an environment where there are clear routines and where they are encouraged and cared for – which is what we endeavour to provide everyday. 

 

Everything we do at Millbrook Primary & Nursery School is designed so that our pupils develop as learners, individuals and citizens in an ever changing world.  Millbrook pupils are caring and can work together. They are also able to think critically, creatively and manage risk. This powerful combination emanates in excellent results and happy pupils.

 

We have an outstanding, dedicated team who are very caring and committed to providing the very best education for our children, and we have developed a broad, balanced and creative curriculum.

 

As a school, we believe in fostering strong and meaningful co-operation between home and school – partnership is a key factor to ensuring success in school. If at any time you have concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school or make an appointment to see me. I look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Headteacher

Children needed to achieve a scaled score of 100 in the reading, mathematics and GPS tests to achieve the expected standard and a scaled score of 110+ to achieve the high standard.

The reading, writing and mathematics combined measure consisted of children achieving the 100+ scaled score in mathematics and reading and being teacher assessed at the expected standard for writing.

 

Progress

Individual pupil progress scores are calculated in comparison to other pupils nationally. For all mainstream pupils nationally, the average progress score was 0. A school progress score for individual subjects will be presented as positive and negative numbers either side of 0.

A score of 0 means pupils in this school, on average, do about as well at key stage 2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally. A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally. A negative score does not mean that pupils did not make any progress between key stages 1 and 2. A negative score means that they made less progress than other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment.

 

The pupils’ average progress at Millbrook:

Reading = -0.7

Writing = -0.15

Mathematics = 0.94

 

Curriculum

 

Information about the subjects we teach can be found in our Curriculum section and on our class pages.

If you have any questions regarding the curriculum we teach, please contact the school directly.

Behaviour Policy 

Complaints Policy 

Pupil Premium Grant

 

The Pupil Premium Grant is intended for pupils from familes on a low income to enable them to achieve at the same rate as their peers and reach their full potential.

 

The document below outlines the interventions available to pupils in receipt of the Pupil Premium Grant. The Pupil Premium Grant is also used to enable a wide range of curriculum enrichment activities and extra curriculum clubs. 

 

It is important to note that at Millbrook we are also acutely aware of our moral obligation to all pupils, their happiness and their attainment. Therefore, an average of 10% of pupils who participate in these interventions are not in receipt of the pupil premium grant but are selected through our detailed knowledge of our pupils’ needs and outstanding teacher assessment.
