Our Vision Statement
At Millbrook Primary School and Nursery, we pride ourselves on serving a unique and diverse community. We value the contribution of those from varied backgrounds, with different characteristics and life experiences. We believe that diversity allows us to build empathy for the lived experiences of other people, which is a key skill for those contributing positively to a globally minded society.
We support the statement by UNESCO (1994) which highlights that inclusion and participation are essential to human dignity and to the enjoyment and exercise of human rights. Because of this, we actively seek to break down barriers and bring about equalisation of opportunity for those in our community. In turn, this allows our children to engage with a broad, balanced and varied curriculum and reach their full potential.
Our curriculum offer has been designed to represent the diverse community our school serves. We understand that each child is unique, therefore we ensure our planning allows all pupils to make progress towards their individual targets whilst engaging them in memorable lessons. We acknowledge our pupils need to keep pace in a rapidly changing world, therefore, we provide our children with the opportunities required to understand complex global issues.
We champion the concept of a broad and balanced curriculum by ensuring coverage of all subjects whilst allowing our children to be creative and pursue individual interests. Curiosity is a quality we want to encourage, as we want our children to feel empowered and inspired to continue a lifelong learning journey. We push them to be inquisitive and independent, whilst also developing their ability to work cooperatively, so they leave us having developed the interpersonal skills required to become integral members of society.
To enhance this, we encourage people in our community to demonstrate respect for themselves, others and the environment. We believe that mutual respect is a key value that positively prepares children for life in modern Britain and the wider world.
We believe that children thrive when provided with a safe and welcoming environment, which promotes their wellbeing, gives them a sense of belonging and provides them with a lifelong love of learning.
