So, I wanted to turn the focus of the next two articles on the practical steps, aside from taking on a tutor, that everyone can work on to improve their end of year achievement I carry out many consultations…

Christmas has come and gone and, whilst at the time the Christmas break felt like a long one, it now seems like a distant memory! Always when I think about Millfields’s contribution to the Littleport Life, I focus on the learning opportunities and activities that the children have been involved in. This time I’d like to think more about the role that governors play in the life of a school, as they have an important…

Something I kept hearing her say was “I don’t like school.” It felt like she was comparing herself to her friends and, in her mind’s-eye, coming off worse. In one particular case, the…

A few issues ago I wrote about the need for Millfield to recruit additional teachers for September due to the growth of Littleport; on just one day we were asked by the LA Admissions team to admit 15 additional children in September, in addition to those who had already been given reception places. We are now welcoming 4 new teachers. The growth of Littleport has also had an impact on our Nursery. Nearing the end…

‘There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: one is roots. The other is wings.’ – Hodding Carter Jr. A Collection of Poems. I love this quote, because for all the noise and chatter of the modern-day world it cuts through to two simple truths that have guided parents, carers and educators throughout history.
