Our vision at Millbrook is to be recognised as an exceptional. A school where through of core values of 'Kindness' and 'Responsibility', everyone strives to be their best each and every day.
Pastoral care, belonging and inclusion therefore form an integral part of school life and we are proud of our work to promote our pupils’ personal development and welfare.
Pastoral care begins with each class teacher and the teaching assistants who have the most direct contact with our children. If there are any concerns regarding a child’s happiness or wellbeing, then these are shared with parents and the Pastoral Care team.
Friendship issues, changes at home, illness within the family and worries about pets are just some of the things that can cause children concern and affect their mental health. However trivial a worry may appear to us as grown-ups, we take each one seriously and always seek to reassure and provide support when necessary.
We want to enable our children to be respectful of others and resilient as they journey through life. They are encouraged to consider their own and each other’s feelings through whole-class PSHE activities and, sometimes, through small discussion groups. Pupils are rewarded for their work and actions in a number of ways, including being awarded points, Star of the Week as well as special ‘Star of the Term’ awards.
