Welcome to Milwards Primary School and Nursery. We hope you will enjoy using our website and that it will help you to discover more about our school community, the exciting learning that takes place and the high expectations we have of children - and of each other.


As we all know, the experiences a child has during the first years of their life have such an impact on the kind of person they will develop into and become in the future. Such a lot of this important time is spent at school so it is crucial that we work in partnership with parents so that we can make a positive difference and create a strong foundation that can be built upon as children continue to develop, flourish and grow.


Our aim is to create an inclusive ethos where every child is valued and included. One in which they feel safe, secure and happy; a positive learning environment where children can become learners for life because they are motivated and excited about learning. We encourage a genuine curiosity and thirst for knowledge.


We will nurture a child’s desire for learning through a child-centred approach within a rich, varied, challenging and inspiring curriculum that will enable every individual to fulfil her or his potential to the highest possible standard. We want all of our children to have the very best education.


We believe that every member of our community has a vital part to play in our children’s educational future. At Milwards we aim to provide an ethos of care and respect for every child and for every member of staff. We do this by encouraging pupils and staff to work respectfully and collaboratively together. There is a collective responsibility to ensure that each member of the Milwards School community feels included, valued and supported.


We want to encourage our pupils to become independent and confident life-long learners, who have empathy towards one another and are prepared to take risks in their learning.


At Milwards we want to ensure that in our school everyone can experience a whole range of successes and where children are encouraged to become confident individuals who are independent and creative in their thinking. We want to establish a climate of care and consideration in which children respect one another and enjoy learning about each other’s achievements. Also, we want to create an ethos underpinned by strong moral values that will provide children with an exemplary model for living.


Visitors often comment on the warm, friendly and inclusive atmosphere here at Milwards. If you would like to come and meet us to see this for yourselves, please feel free to make an appointment to visit us – you will be made most welcome.
