About Us

Milford School is situated on an extremely attractive and extensive site, which occupies a central position in the village of Milford, close to local shops and St John’s Church.

The school has its own large playing field, a large playground at the rear of the main building and a smaller, secure Reception Class playground at the front. We are constantly looking for ways to enhance the childrens learning experience by maximising the use of indoor and outdoor space.

The main building comprises four large classrooms, a spacious hall, kitchen, staff room, offices and cloakroom/toilet facilities. There is a library area which is used by the children on a regular basis. A new Learning Hub, in which small groups of children are able to work apart from their class group with the assistance of classroom support staff, a teacher, or a volunteer helper is also available. This area also accommodates cooking facilities, which the children use under adult supervision, as well as housing our SCL led Breakfast Club (fees applicable).

Within the school grounds there is a pond and there are many well-established trees and shrubs. The addition of a sensory garden and trim trail have helped to provide an environment that is pleasing to the eye, as well as being a valuable study resource.

Between the main building and the large playground, there is a two classroom block with covered outside learning area which houses Elm and Lime (Year 2) Classes.

The school is co-educational. At present it caters for a maximum of 180 children, ranging in age from four years to seven plus years.

Our classes are currently organised into 6 classes:

  • Willow Class: Reception, age 4-5 years
  • Oak Class: Reception, age 4-5 years
  • Cherry Class: Year 1, age 5-6
  • Beech Class: Year 1, age 5-6
  • Lime Class: Year 2, age 6-7
  • Elm Class: Year 2, age 6-7
Whilst each teacher is primarily involved with their own class groups of children, it is school policy that staff share their particular talents within the school wherever possible. In addition to their responsibilities, each teacher has "subject" responsibilities e.g. Maths, English, ICT (Information and Communications Technology), Science, etc. This involves attending relevant courses and training, sharing information and monitoring the standards of achievement in that subject throughout the school.
 
Further Curriculum Information
All documents relating to this school are freely available at the office, including reports on our latest OFSTED Inspection.

Parents may see any of our policy documents and schemes of work. We hope this will enable them to gain some insight into the way we teach and the detail covered under each area of learning. They have the right to withdraw their children from lessons for Religious Education, Assemblies and Sex Education. In such cases the school will provide alternative learning opportunities for the children. This may be arranged by application to the head teacher.
