Headteacher's welcome

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website, which I hope will help you to learn more about our wonderful school.

Millfields Primary School is a small primary school with a friendly, family atmosphere, where our children are at the heart of everything that we do. We are situated on the outskirts of Wivenhoe and are incredibly lucky to benefit from a beautiful rural setting with lots of space, which provides excellent opportunities for outdoor learning and the delivery of Forest School sessions.

As a relatively small school, we pride ourselves in knowing all of our children as individuals and we are proud of the nurturing and inclusive environment that we are able to offer. We value the vital role that parents and carers play in their child’s education and development and recognise the benefits of working in close partnership with our families. At Millfields we know our families well and staff work closely alongside them to ensure that our children benefit from these positive relationships.

At Millfields, we provide a high quality education, that develops the whole child, within an inclusive, happy and caring community. We deliver an inspiring and challenging curriculum that is broad and balanced, alongside a range of enriching opportunities, for all of our children, to ensure that they are well prepared for their future and can enjoy the fullness that life has to offer.

When children come to the end of their time at Millfields, our aim is for them to leave us as resilient, confident, compassionate and inquisitive children who have achieved excellent academic attainment, as well as a range of essential skills, that will equip them to succeed in the next stage of their education and their future beyond this.

We hope that you are able to find everything that you need on our website and that you find the content interesting and informative. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, would like to know more about any aspect of life at Millfields or would like to visit us.
