Our Vision for Millfields

We work together as a community to provide a happy, secure and stimulating environment where every learner is entitled to an experience of learning which is rich and varied, enjoyable and challenging, and inspires all to strive for excellence so that every individual is able to shape his/her own destiny and create a better future for themselves and others.

 

As children are at the heart of our learning community, we actively seek their involvement in the development of the school, valuing their ideas, opinions and contributions.

 

We recognise the importance of parents as the first educators and we aim to build on that foundation.  We see them as partners in the learning process and we seek ways to strengthen that partnership for the benefit of the children.

 

We encourage and support people to become effective members of, and contributors to, their local communities. We work with the wider community to enrich our learning opportunities and promote understanding, tolerance and respect for others’ differences and beliefs.

 

We will aim for effective communication between children, staff, parents and governors, which will provide a sound basis for learning together.

 

We provide an exciting curriculum which is relevant to children’s lives, where provision is matched to need and which ensures that pupils have the skills, knowledge and understanding to prepare them for the next stage of their education and the changing world in which we live.  In addition, we feel it is important that the curriculum also promotes children’s creative, expressive, empathic, social, moral, spiritual and physical development. We encourage pupils to take responsibility for their own actions and make informed choices in order to prepare them for adult life and lifelong learning.
