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…

The new school year at Millfield has started well and we have welcomed some new members of staff. Ms Dutton and Ms Sibson have joined key stage 1, while Ms Rush and Ms Wright have joined key stage 2. Despite being on maternity leave, Ms Ashley keeps popping in which is lovely – time will fly and she will soon be back! It is with sadness that we said ‘good-bye’ at the October half term…

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…

In my 8 years as Headteacher at Millfield, the Highfields housing development has always been ‘in progress’ – sometimes there has been lots of building activity and at other times, the building sector has been going through quieter times. In the last few months it feels as though, all of a sudden, the Highfields development is nearing its completion. How true this actually is, I don’t know, but certainly houses have been springing up on…

Christmas now seems a long time ago, however, as always in school, it was lovely… if very busy! Particularly memorable were the reception nativity, our carol service at St George’s and out singers who visit residents at The Grange every year to sing carols. Since my last piece for Littleport Life children at school have been fortunate to take part in a number of sporting and enrichment activities that bring the curriculum to life and…

As I write this, the school year has come to an end- I would say we have survived the year, but what would be more appropriate would be ‘we have survived the heat!’ It has been another busy term with lots of wonderful enrichment activities taking place that will hopefully give the children lasting memories. Our Year 1 and 2 children had the opportunity to take part in a sleepover in the school hall- very…

As I write this contribution for the Littleport Life the sun is shining, we are having some of the hottest April days for 70 years and yesterday we received our Ofsted report following a 2 day inspection towards the end of March- both the sunshine and the report are bringing a smile to our faces here at Millfield! Those of you who have been members of the Littleport community for some time, will know that…

Primary Schools are not just about reading, writing and maths- they’re about engaging children in the environment around them, awakening an interest in, amongst other things, science, sport, music and the arts. At Millfield we now have a very established commitment to sport and are developing our provision for music at the School. I am delighted to share with you that at the beginning of the autumn term, we were successful in being awarded the…

This has been such an exciting venture for the School and local community. Our Nursery opened on September 11th and I have to say has been an absolute joy from day 1. The Nursery staff made home visits prior to the children starting and parents and children were invited for taster sessions before their ‘proper’ start date. This enabled parents and staff to get to know each other and for children to become familiar with…
