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 learning experiences offered by maximising the use of indoor and outdoor space. Recently this has seen us redevelop our pond area, gardening area (with planters for every class) and we are in the process of redeveloping learning zones on our field to provide outdoor classroom spaces.
The main building comprises four large classrooms, a spacious hall, kitchen, staff room, offices and cloakroom/toilet facilities. The children's toilets have been fully refurbished in the last couple of years and provide a clean, fresh area for the children. We have a newly installed library which is visited by the children (with their own Milford library card) on a regular basis, with sessions led by and books changed by one of our amazing volunteers so that every child gets a rich weekly library session each week. The library also doubles up as a Learning Hub, in which small groups of children are able to work in a quiet, distraction free area, with the assistance of classroom support staff, a teacher, or a volunteer helper. In the main building we have cooking facilities so that up to three classes at a time can be preparing delicious food in their classrooms (sometimes linked to learning in History or Science). The school hall is used daily by our Milford staff led Breakfast Club (fees applicable).
Within the school grounds we have many well-established trees and shrubs. The addition of an additional trim trail have helped to provide an environment that is pleasing to the eye, as well as being a valuable learning resource.
Between the main building and the large playground, there is a two classroom building with a 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.
