Set in extensive grounds on the edge of the attractive village of Milverton, ours is a school with many features of which we are proud.
We have a record of continuing high academic achievenment by our pupils and the school was recently named in the Sunday Times Top 200 Primary Schools in England. Our expectations of pupils are high and we encourage every child to recognise their potential and develop their individual talents.
Our facilities are outstanding. When the school was built in 1993 it gained a design award. It has been enhanced since then by additional facilities, many provided through the fund raising efforts of our parents and Governors. Additions have included a computer suite and playground area for the Early Years classes, an area for our Special Needs team and the very popular Adventure Playground. We are fortunate to have extensive school grounds with a variety of natural habitats, which encourages an environmental awareness in our pupils. As an Eco School we are very proud to be the holders of our 3rd Eco Flag.
The curriculum continues to expand. We retain our commitment to 'hands-on' learning and the importance of the creative subjects and thinking skills despite the pressure of the statutory curriculum. We regard 'out of hours learning' as part of our services to our children and families. We run the Milverton School Sports Association every night after school, alongside our Toasties After School Club, which includes creative as well as leisure activities.
- We aim to provide a positive nurturing environment in which each individual is valued and where everyone can work and play happily together.
- We aim to motivate and challenge each pupil creatively and academically to take full advantage of the education we provide, whilst recognising differences in personal needs, experiences, talents and potential.
- We aim to develop sensitivity and awareness, encouraging everyone to treat each other and their environment with respect at all times. We are proud our school is recognised as an Eco School.
- We aim to ensure that our children have a sense of pride in themselves, the school and the community they live in. We teach our pupils to develop a sense of personal responsibility for their actions and talents, to do their best and be proud of what they achieve both personally and collectively.
Together, we are building a community of creative successful life long learners:
we challenge ourselves to achieve whilst sustaining spiritual, moral, emotional and economic well being.
The world is our classroom!
